Iowa woman mistakenly pronounced dead ‘gasped for air’ in funeral home
A care facility in Iowa is facing thousands of dollars in fines after a 66-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the hospice care facility in Iowa.
Staff saw no signs of life and alerted the woman’s family before a funeral home was called to pick up the body. However, within minutes of arriving at the funeral home, the woman gasped for air within an hour and a faint pulse was detected. The woman ultimately died two days later at the hospice care facility, surrounded by her family.
