A Kenyan man who “came back to life” in a morgue sparking shock among Kenyans has now been reported dead, according to local media.
Last week the man was reported to be critically ill and declared dead but regained consciousness at the morgue.
The man called Peter Kigen, 32 had collapsed in his house and was rushed to hospital.
He was pronounced dead and morgue attendants were preparing to embalm him when he regained consciousness.
Kigen told Kenya’s Daily Nation newspaper last Thursday that he was happy to be alive. “This is the work of God,” he is quoted as saying.
Local media in Kenya has now reported that on Thursday, a family spokesman confirmed the death of the man.
“Kigen was pronounced dead upon arrival at Kericho County Hospital where he was being transferred to from Kapkatet for further treatment and management,” Hezbon Tonui said told the Standard newspaper.
