Barely two weeks after he was presumed dead for the first time, Peter Kigen, a middle-aged man from Kenyan has died again.
Naija News learnt that the 32-year-old man ‘rosed’ from the dead a few moments after he was pronounced dead by doctors at a hospital where he was receiving treatment after he slumped at his home in Kibwastuiyo, a community in Bureti.
It was revealed that Kigen was rushed to Kapkatet hospital in Kericho county following the fall at his house, and was confirmed dead on Tuesday, November 24.
However, he left the hospital staffs in shock after he suddenly roke up in pain as an incision was made on his right leg in the Morgue. Naija News understands that Kigen had suffered from a chronic illness for a while.
Reacting to his situation, Kigen while on his treatment bed a week ago said he was shocked to learn that he was thought to have died and even taken to the mortuary.
He said, “I cannot believe what just happened. How did they establish that I was dead?”
Kigen declared his interest to embark on evangelism once he’s discharged from hospital. He said: “I did not even know where I was when I regained consciousness, but I thank God for sparing my life. I will serve him for the rest of my life,”
On his part, the hospital’s medical superintendent Gilbert Cheruiyot reported that Kigen was in critical condition when he was brought to the hospital. According to him, his relatives presumed he was dead and were the ones who took him to the mortuary without waiting for certification of death
“His relatives presumed he was dead and did not even wait for certification of death. They moved him to the mortuary, on their own,” Dr. Cheruiyot revealed.
However, Kigen’s relatives have now confirmed that he has passed on. They said he died on Thursday afternoon at Kericho County Hospital after being transferred to the health facility from Kapkatet.
“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, the family spokesman told reporters.
