MILWAUKEE – A Milwaukee County medical examiner's report says a 46-year-old man was pronounced dead after collapsing at his Milwaukee apartment, but started moving his limbs 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 authorities found him "cold to the touch and in rigor" and didn't 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 rushed him to a local hospital. His diagnosis was redacted from the report.
Sancomb's brother, John, says he's "doing better every day."
