In a story straight out of a horror movie, a 3-year-old girl in the Philippines woke up in a coffin at her own funeral when she was wrongly pronounced dead.
A neighbor, who was in attendance at the funeral made the discovery when they removed the cover of the girl’s coffin and saw her head move, according to The Philippine Star.
A video was confirmed by police to be actual footage of the seemingly deceased toddler waking from the dead at her funeral service. She can be seen being swaddled and taken away by family members as she moves her head around in a clearly awakened state.
Police, citing the girl’s parents, say that the toddler had had a severe fever for days when she was taken to a local clinic to be checked out and proclaimed dead.
During that time, the attending clinic personnel and physician confirmed that the young patient had no more pulse and was clinically dead last Saturday morning about 9 a.m.,” Police Senior Inspector Heidil Teelan said.
Teelan said that the girl’s parents immediately gave her water after she suddenly awoke at the church service and took her in for a check-up before bringing her back home. He also said that the family is seeking medical attention at a better hospital in the area and that nurses had been sent to their house to assist in her care in the meantime.
We really can not make confirmation on the status of the girl but based on the observation of the police personnel I deployed, it appears the girl remained in a state of comatose in their house,” Teelan said.
