Declared dead by doctors, then rescued from the mortuary, Freddie Maguire has made such a strong recovery that he has been nicknamed Jesus Christ.
Mr Maguire, 47, from Dublinâ€™s north inner city, was pronounced dead by doctors at the Mater Hospital after they fought for 30 minutes to save his life on Easter Day.
Mr Maguireâ€™s relatives were coming to terms with their loss when they were informed that he was, in fact, alive. A member of staff saw his hand move as he was about to be put into a mortuary refrigerator.
Frances Maguire, his aunt, said: â€œHeâ€™s all right now and heâ€™s back the way he was before this terrible thing took place.
