Child who "woke up" at her own funeral has died

Girl had high fever for days


Last week, a little girl was being prepared for burial when she began to move. A neighbor of the family had opened the girl’s coffin to adjust the body when he noticed a slight movement of her head. The family quickly picked up the girl and ran out of the church in Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur, in the Philippines.

There are now reports from the 3-year-old’s hometown and other media sources say the little girl went into a coma after being taken home and later died.

The Philippine website says NoypiStuff reports, “On Monday, Dr Mary Silyne Asor-Cabahug, the Municipal Health Officer of Aurora, used a cardiac monitor to assess the condition of the three–year-old girl who came back to life at her own funeral. She found no signs of life and confirmed that the child is dead. Dr Cabahug advised the kid’s parents to bury the dead body soon to prevent diseases.”

The Sydney World-Herald says the girl never woke up after leaving the church.

The child had suffered from a high fever when she was declared dead on Saturday. As the body lay in a church awaiting the funeral, a family member saw the little girl move.

Her parents rushed her to a hospital where she was checked over before her parents were allowed to take her home.

The parents are now planning a second funeral.
