“Authorities in Nebraska said a woman who was pronounced dead at her nursing home was found alive two hours later at the funeral parlor. Chief Deputy Ben Houchin of the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office identified the woman in a press conference as 74-year-old Constance Glantz of Lincoln, Neb. He said she was a resident at the Mulberry at Waverly nursing home …. The nursing home pronounced Glantz dead Tuesday morning at 9:44 a.m., Houchin said, stating its employees then transported the body of a person ‘they believed was deceased’ to the funeral home. At the funeral home, an employee was placing Glantz on to a table to start ‘their process’ when they noticed she was breathing and called emergency services.” (06/04/24)
