'Dead' boy wakes up at own funeral in Brazil07/06/2012 - 17:47:59
A Brazilian boy who was thought to be dead woke up at his funeral.
Kelvin Santos, two, was pronounced dead after doctors were unable to resuscitate him during treatment for pneumonia.
However, relatives were left completely shocked when he regained consciousness and asked for a glass of water as they prepared to bury him.
Kelvin reportedly smiled, looked round, drank his water then reclined back in his coffin. His father, Antonio Santos, could not then reawaken him again and carried him to hospital.
Doctors were mystified, but confirmed he was indeed dead.
Antonio said: “During the wake I held Kelvin and said, ‘son, come back to daddy’.
“And a few hours later my son sat up in the coffin and said, ‘daddy, give me water’.
“Everybody started to scream. We thought a miracle had taken place and our boy had come back to life.
"Then he lay down again and didn’t move again. We couldn’t wake him.”
