Her family was informed and she was taken to the morgue at 1.10am.
Seven hours later, a member of staff “got the shock of her life” when she discovered the pensioner sprawled on the floor.
Zinaida had fallen as she attempted to climb off a mortuary table and get out.
She was covered in blankets and rushed to intensive care at Gorshechensky central district hospital in Kursk Oblast, Russia.
Staff called her niece Tatiana and a senior doctor told her: “We have an unusual situation. She is alive!”

Tatiana was informed that her aunt had been registered as clinically dead for 15 minutes and was “pulled back from the other world”.
A doctor and anaesthetist later confessed they had sent Zinaida to the morgue one hour and 20 minutes after she died, instead of two hours as rules dictate.
Relatives are planning to sue the hospital, while Zinaida has since been moved to another facility as she receives further treatment.
