Imagine waking up at your own funeral!
That is what happen to an 87-year-old man in Taiwan which gave his relatives quite a shock according to the Shanghai Daily.
The man’s relatives were in a Buddhist mourning hall, reciting prayers over the dead body during his funeral, 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 was 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 as his breathing apparently stopped – until in the middle of the service he started breathing heavily.
The family sent him back to the hospital. Doctors are reportedly baffled as to his impressive recovery.
