A hawker who had been presumed dead ‘resurrected’ at Machakos Level Five Hospital mortuary. His colleagues who had accompanied the police to the mortuary fled when the 45 year old man woke up. According to the Standard the man had been found in a ditch in Machakos Bus Park. Police later took the body to the mortuary. The morgue attendants noticed that the man was still breathing and rushed him to the casualty ward but he died ‘again’. Family and friends who were hopeful that he would live could not hold their tears when they learnt he had died. The hawker had been warned against drinking on health grounds. His friends told the Standard that he was lying on the trench for six hours after a drinking spree.
