Declared dead after a vehicle accident‚ a Gauteng woman was discovered alive inside a mortuary fridge by forensic officers.

The unnamed woman had been taken to Carletonville morgue, in Gauteng province after showing "no form of life" in the wake of a road smash.

According to News24, mortuary technicians found her alive in a morgue fridge hours after the crash in which the victims' auto rolled, throwing all three occupants clear of the vehicle, killing two of them.

The family is however demanding answers as investigation has been opened.

The man said that the family of the woman were in shock.

"We are investigating the case and we will present our findings once it has been concluded", Gerrit Bradnick said.

"The issue is that we need answers, that's all we want and we don't have any clarity now".

"This did not happen because our paramedics are not properly trained", he said.

Oseni reportedly followed her boyfriend, a motorboy identified as Wahis, to his apartment in Igbosoro road and hasn't been seen since then.

The woman, who was not identified, was thought to be mortally wounded when she and others were ejected June 24 after a driver lost control of the auto they were traveling in.

In another frightening case earlier this year, a Spanish prisoner regained consciousness hours before an autopsy was carried out.

But other forensic doctors started to hear noises coming from him and realised he was still alive. Seven years ago, a 50-year-old man woke up screaming in an Eastern Cape morgue, demanding to be taken out of "the cold place" after spending almost 24 hours there.

He died five hours after the discovery.
