Dead man wakes up at his own funeral

Dead man wakes up at his own funeral

Mourners at a funeral in Egypt swapped tears for cheers when the dead body of a family member they were burying woke up.

Hamid Hafex al-Nubdi, a 28-year-old waiter from Naga al Simman, near Luxor was being prepared for burial when a doctor sent to sign his death certificate discovered that the body was still warm, The Daily Mail reported.

Al-Nubdi was declared dead after suffering a heart attack at work. His family members were so convinced that he was dead that he had already washed his body according to Islamic traditions and were preparing to bury him.

The lady doctor who found the dead man was still alive revived him.
And rather than cancel the funeral, the mourners turned the occasion into a celebration of al-Nubdi's "resurrection".
