A dead man in Brazil gave his family a pleasant, but scary surprise when they showed up to a morgue only to find him very much alive.
G1 Globo reports Medics at a hospital in El Salvador said 54-year-old Valdelucio Goncalves died after suffering from organ failure. His relatives began making funeral arrangements, buying a coffin and a death notice in the local newspaper but when they arrived at the morgue to dress his body the day of the funeral...the body bag he was in began moving.
His brother says he went crazy and called for the nurse and medical team. After what we can only imagine was a very quick investigation of a moving 'dead' man, they confirmed he wasn't actually dead.
They very much alive man wrote a letter about his experience because he can't speak. He said the Blessed Irma Dulce brought him back from the dead.
She was a Brazilian Catholic Franciscan Sister believed to have miraculous powers.
She might have a hand in other "resurrections."
Last year, a man in Zimbabwe woke up right in the middle of his own funeral and sat up in his coffin.
A few months earlier a woman woke up after officials placed her in a metal coffin screaming, which certainly added shock value.
