3-year-old Mexican girl reportedly wakes up at her own funeral, dies hours later. Camila Mendoza’s family claims the child had a heartbeat and was breathing while laying in her casket at her funeral in Mexico.
A 3-year-old girl in Mexico was pronounced dead twice earlier this month, after it was discovered she was still breathing at her funeral.
The family of Camila Roxana Martinez Mendoza is now suing the hospital involved for negligence, according to El Universal San Luis Potosí.
Camila was taken to Salinas de Hidalgo Basic Community Hospital for dehydration on August 17. The young girl was experiencing vomiting, stomach pain and a fever.
Camila was reportedly given paracetamol and released from the hospital. But Camila’s parents saw her condition deteriorate, and a private doctor urged them to re-admit her to the Salinas de Hidalgo Basic Community Hospital after his own methods had failed to help.
Camila’s mother claimed the hospital staff neglected her daughter during her second visit. She said they took a long time to give her oxygen and struggled to give her intravenous fluids.
“They didn’t put it on her because they couldn’t find her little veins. Finally, a nurse managed it,” Mary Jane Peralta told El Universal San Luis Potosí.
Camila was eventually taken to a locked room where Mary could not reach her, the traumatized mother claimed. The 3-year-old girl was then pronounced dead by the hospital.
