‘Dead’ Body In River Comes Back To Life? Woman Opens Eyes After Policeman Discovers Body Floating In English River
A "dead" body found in a river in England did the unthinkable when it - came back to life? The truth is, the 70-something-year-old woman wasn't really dead in the first place, but the police officer who spotted her floating on her back, her head partly submerged, swore she looked that way.
The Independent reports that police officer Mat Mitchell responded to a phone call from a boat captain who reported a woman floating in the River Trent, one of the main rivers in central England. When Mitchell showed up, he tried throwing a life ring to the woman, but she didn't respond. That's when he waded into the water in order to retrieve the "dead" body.

When Mitchell reached the body, the woman opened her eyes. He calls it one of the "most bizarre experiences" of his career.
"I'd like to say it was like a scene from Baywatch but it was actually very cold and I'm not quite as chiselled as David Hasselhoff," Mitchell told the BBC. "We were preparing for the worst so it was so nice that this had a happy ending."
The woman was taken to the hospital and is expected to recover from the strange incident.
