A 3-year-old girl who appeared to have died of a fever shocked her family when she woke up at her funeral, according to a report.
According to The Philippine Star, the girl had been experiencing fever for several days and was brought to a clinic for medical attention last Friday.
“During that time, the attending clinic personnel and physician confirmed that the young patient had no more pulse and was clinically dead last Saturday morning about 9 a.m.,” Police Senior Inspector Heidil Teelan told The Philippine Star.
At the funeral, a neighbour who lifted the cover of the coffin saw the girl’s head move.
The neighbour then checked for a pulse and found that the girl was alive.
The surprise awakening was captured on video and shared on YouTube.
After the girl woke up, she was immediately given water and taken to the clinic for a check up.
Her family then reportedly brought her back home where she appears to be in “a state of comatose,” Teelan said.
The family is now searching for a hospital that can provide better care.
