‘Dead’ Man Woke Up at his Funeral

Dead ManAn 87-year-old man gave his relatives a shock in Taiwan - when he woke up at his own funeral.

The man’s relatives were in a Buddhist mourning hall, reciting prayers over the dead body, when it gasped and woke up.

The family had been told by the hospital which had been treating the man that the only thing keeping him alive were oxygen hoses, and that he would die quickly if they were removed.

The family opted to take him out of the hospital so that he could die at home.

They removed the oxygen hoses, dressed him in funeral clothes, and placed him in the mourning hall - until he started breathing heavily.

The family sent him back to the hospital. Doctors are reportedly baffled as to his impressive recovery.
