In a bizarre story, a 20-year-old Detroit-area woman suffered an apparent cardiac arrest in her home on Sunday and was declared deceased by paramedics and a coroner. However, when her body was transported to a funeral home, the funeral home employees found her very much alive and breathing and called EMS to take her to the hospital, where she remains apparently alive at the time of this article's publication.

According to WDIV-TV, her saga began Sunday morning when paramedics were summoned to her house to respond to an apparent cardiac arrest. According to a statement provided by the Southfield, Michigan, fire department, "At 7:34 a.m. on August 23, 2020, Southfield Fire Department paramedics arrived at a home in Southfield on a call for an unresponsive female. When paramedics arrived, they found a 20-year-old who was not breathing. The paramedics performed CPR and other life reviving methods for 30 minutes. Given medical readings and the condition of the patient, it was determined at that time that she did not have signs of life."
