Brazilian Father Claims His Dead Two-Year-Old Son Sat Up During Funeral

Via Nine News:

A Brazilian father claims his two-year-old son, who had been pronounced dead, sat up during his funeral and asked for water.

Kelvin Santos stopped breathing while being treated for pneumonia at the Aberlardo Santos Hospital in Belem, northern Brazil on June 1, OPOVO reports.

He was declared dead at 7:40 p.m. on Friday and his body was handed over to his family who held a wake throughout the night with Kelvin’s body displayed in an open casket.

On Saturday, an hour before he was due to be buried, witnesses claim the boy sat up in his coffin and said to his father Antonio, “Daddy, can I have some water?”

Mr. Santos said at that point “everybody started to scream, we couldn’t believe our eyes.”…

    I’ve heard of stories like this. In brazil they have a tradition in the country side of drinking to the dead, where they all gather and have some drinks and mourn the dead. But sometimes in rare cases some come back from paralysis or what not and scares the crap out of the funeral attendees.
