Daniel Alhassan Azaare, a senior mortuary attendant at the Bolgatanga Hospital in the Upper East Region, has detailed how he saved a 9-year-old boy who was declared dead and nearly deposited in the mortuary.
In an exclusive interview on a programme on Dreamz FM hosted by Stanley Abopam, Azaare recalled how he was in his usual line of duty and received a call from nurses in the children's ward to collect the remains of the 9-year-old boy.
Azaare who has over 20 years of experience working as a mortuary attendant revealed that he went to the bed where the boy's body was lying, wrapped the body, and placed it on the mortuary trolley and headed back to the mortuary.
But while approaching the morgue, the little boy coughed and sneezed almost at the same time, he said.
''When he sneezed and coughed, I immediately stopped and carried him gently onto my shoulder and took him back to the ward,'' Azaare told dreamzfmonline.com.
He disclosed that the nurses started asking him why he was returning to the children's ward with the boy's body but he went straight to the bed and laid him there.
''I told them the boy was not dead. They were surprised,'' adding that the nurses immediately attended to the boy and he was subsequently discharged after he fully recovered.
