The 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.

The Independent reports the local police chief said the child had a high fever for several days before being taken to a hospital on Friday.

“We really cannot make confirmation on the status of the girl but based on the observation of the police personnel I deployed it appeared the girl remained in a state of comatose in their house," he commented.
