Inmate Wakes Up In Mortuary After 3 Doctors Declare Him Dead

Published

on


Hopefully they all had a good laugh about it.

Let’s all talk about Gonzalo Montoya Jiménez. Jiménez is an inmate in Spain who was recently found unresponsive in his prison cell at the penitentiary centre in Asturias. He was so damn unresponsive that he was labeled as medically dead…by three separate doctors.

Jiménez was placed in a bag and taken to Legal Medicine Institute of Oviedo for an autopsy to determine how he died. But not so fast, because just when the doctors were about to begin an autopsy they heard noise coming from the 29-year-old man’s bag. Yep, he was still alive.

According to some of Jiménez relatives, he “had autopsy markings on him, ready to be opened up,” before he suddenly woke up. So what the hell happened? Well apparently Jiménez suffered catalepsy, which is a trance or seizure, where you completely lose all sensation and consciousness.

Other symptoms include an incredibly rigid body and limbs and a slowing down of bodily functions like breathing and heart rate. That’s why medical professionals declared him dead because his pulse was so faint that they couldn’t detect it.

The prisoner was taken to Central University Hospital of Asturias in Oviedo for some tests to ensure his health is up to scratch. The Daily Mail reports that Montoya was feeling ill the day before the incident and his wife claims he suffers from epilepsy.

Then again, Jiménez has been in prison for 29 years, so perhaps he’s a little bummed out he woke up.

Travel: The Williamsburg Hotel, Brooklyn

Published

on


Up until a couple of years ago, finding a descent hotel in Williamsburg was pretty tough. There was of course always The Wythe leading the charge opening in 2012, but over the past year, North Brooklyn has welcomed a couple new hotels all within walking distance of each other. The latest is the aptly named Williamsburg Hotel.

Located in North Brooklyn, in possibly the easiest location to get in and out of Manhattan, the hotel features 150 guest rooms spanning the eight-story brick, Corten steel, and glass structure, elegantly designed by London design firm Michaelis Boyd Studio (Soho House Berlin & Babington House) to pay homage to Williamsburg’s industrial past.

In addition to the usual comforts of hotel living, The Williamsburg will offers up its own vegetable focused restaurant – Harvey, as well as rooftop pool and lounge, an expansive grand ballroom and three distinct bars, one of which is housed inside a retrofitted water tower, how very Brooklyn of them. Hotel guests can also borrow one of their custom bikes, or hitch a ride on their adorable pink Tuk-Tuk.

While much of the amenities weren’t ready when we stayed here earlier this month, the hotel it self was quite impressive to say the least. Housing five different room-types, we had the opportunity to stay in one of their Queen rooms, which featured floor to ceiling windows, a private balcony with a view of Brooklyn and Manhattan (somewhat of a rarity in NYC), and a rather impressive bathroom. Complete with classic white marble and Waterworks brass hardware, the bathroom featured toiletries by Brooklyn based brand Apotheke you’ll definitely want to pocket before you leave.

While much of the food and beverage program is still to come, we highly recommend pulling up a seat at the bar for a cocktail on your next visit and look forward to heading back again soon.
