Woman climbs out of coffins after six days

A Chinese woman terrified her neighbours by climbing out of her coffin six days after she "died".

Li Xiufeng, 95, was thought to have passed away after she was found motionless following a head injury, and she was laid in her coffin two days after being discovered.

Fortunately, her neighbor Chen Qingwang – who assumed she had died after he failed to wake her up – chose not to nail the coffin shut, and the day before the funeral he arrived at her house to find the casket empty and her corpse gone.

But villagers were stunned to find her on a stool in her kitchen cooking.

She reportedly told them: “I slept for a long time. After waking up, I felt so hungry, and wanted to cook something to eat.

"I pushed the lid for a long time to climb out."
