Wisconsin man pronounced dead, but then starts moving

Posted:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A Milwaukee County medical examiner's report says a 46-year-old man was pronounced dead after collapsing at his Milwaukee apartment, but then started moving his limbs just as he was about to be taken to the morgue.

The report says the man's girlfriend called police Tuesday because she had not heard from him recently. A police officer entered Thomas Sancomb's apartment and found him at the foot of his bed.

The report says both the officer and paramedics found he was cold, appeared pale and "in rigor" and did not attempt to resuscitate him. He was pronounced dead and his family was notified.

The report says as his body was about to be removed, he began moving his limbs. Paramedics returned to the scene and rushed him to a local hospital. Sancomb's brother, John, says he's "doing better every day."
