A two year old boy, believed dead, sat up in his coffin and asked for water before laying back down again lifeless. Kelvin Santos stopped breathing during treatment for pneumonia at a hospital in Belem, northern Brazil. He was declared dead at 7:40PM on Friday and his body was handed over to his family in a plastic bag.
Kelvin’s family took him home where grieving relatives held a wake throughout the night, with the boy’s body laid in an open coffin. The mysterious event happened an hour before his funeral was due to take place on Saturday the boy apparently sat up in his coffin and said: “Daddy can I have some water?”.
His father said: “Everybody started to scream, we couldn’t believe our eyes. Then we thought a miracle had taken place and our boy had come back to life. Then Kelvin jus laid back down, the way he was. We couldn’t wake him. He was dead again.”
Not sure whether it is a fabricated story to attract attention, although it is certainly a bizarre occurrence.
