Dead girl wakes up in coffin during her funeral in Philippines. A THREE-year-old girl, who was pronounced dead after a fever and who awoke in a coffin during her funeral ceremony, has reportedly died in hospital.
Dr Mary Silyne Asor-Cabahug, the Municipal Health Officer of Aurora, used a cardiac monitor to assess the condition of the girl who came back to life at her own funeral. She found no signs of life and confirmed that the child is dead, Noypistuff reported.
Dr Cabahug told the child’s parents to bury the dead body soon to prevent diseases.
Earlier police confirmed the incredible incident to the Philippine Star , after footage of the child seemingly rising from the dead at the church service in Bayabas went viral over the weekend.
Citing accounts of the girl’s parents, Police Senior Inspector Heidil Teelan said the toddler was taken to a local hospital on Friday after suffering a severe fever.
“During that time, the attending clinic personnel and physician confirmed that the young patient had no more pulse and was clinically dead last Saturday morning about 9am,” Mr Teelan said.
The grave error was only discovered when a funeral attendee removed the cover of the girl’s coffin and saw her head move.
Mr Teelan said the parents immediately gave the girl water and rushed her to a clinic for a check-up.
