Doctors don’t have all the answers. A 3-year-old girl in the Philippines woke up at her funeral after she was pronounced dead. Scary stuff.
The baby “died” from a severe fever last Saturday (July 12) so her parents took her to a local clinic. “During that time, the attending clinic personnel and physician confirmed that the young patient had no more pulse and was clinically dead last Saturday at about 9 a.m.,” said Police Senior Inspector Heidi Teelan.
A neighbor attending the girl’s funeral saw the little girl’s head move while she was in the coffin. They checked her pulse, and confirmed that she was actually alive.
“We really cannot make confirmation on the status of the girl,” Teelen explained “But based on the observation of the police personnel I deployed, it appears [that] the girl remained in a state of comatose in their house.”
Video of the funeral blunder received more than 2.5 million hits on YouTube.
