A funeral in Egypt turned from sadness to shock and then to cheers when the deceased person being buried woke up during the funeral services. The person, 28-year-old Hamdi Hafez al-Nubi, had been declared deceased after suffering a heart attack while at work. He worked as a waiter and is from Naga al-Simmanm, which is near Luxor. The body was being prepped for burial when a doctor went to sign the death certificate. That doctor found that the body was still warm.

The family of al-Nubi was prepared to bury their relative and had even washed his body, which is part of Islamic tradition. They were ready to bury him on Friday. When the doctor discovered the body was still warm, the doctor then checked the vital signs and found that al-Nubi was still breathing. The doctor then revived al-Nubi and the man’s mother, who had fainted when she learned that her son was still alive. The mourners in attendance changed the funeral to a celebration, calling it al-Nubi’s resurrection.


This is not the first time someone has come back from the dead recently. In April, a woman from China rose from her casket just six days following a fall that people thought killed her. The woman is 95-years-old. The woman, Li Xiufeng, was discovered motionless and not breathing in bed by one of her neighbor’s just two weeks after she tripped and suffered an injury to her head at home. She lives in Beiliu, Guangxi Province.

The neighbor attempted to wake up Xiufeng but could not. The neighbor feared that the woman was dead. While friends and relatives paid their respects, Xiufeng was kept in a casket that was not sealed in her home, according to Chinese custom. Just one day prior to the funeral, the casket was found empty by neighbors and found Xiufeng cooking in her kitchen after waking up from ‘the dead.’
