    Mourners at a recent funeral in Zimbabwe were caught by surprise when the guest of honor sat up in his coffin.



    According to local reports, 34-year-old Brighton Dama Zanthe, the seemingly dead man, woke up last week while friends and family prepared to pay their respects at his home in Gweru.

    "I was the first to notice Mr. Zanthe’s moving legs as I was in the queue to view his body. At first I could not believe my eyes but later realized that there was indeed some movements on the body as other mourners retreated in disbelief," Lot Gaka, one of the mourners and Zanthe's employer, told The Herald.

    Fortunately, Zanthe woke up just in time; his body was set to be transported to a funeral parlor later that day. After Zanthe "resurrected" he was taken to a local hospital, where he remained on life support for two days before eventually being released.

    Bodies springing back to life is, perhaps surprisingly, not an uncommon occurrence in Zimbabwe. Earlier this year, a woman, who was believed to have collapsed and died during sex, woke up screaming after she was placed into a coffin.

    I suppose they don't believe in embalming (sp)

    Guess not! Good thing he didn't wake up any later than he did!

    "not a uncommon occurrence" well my gosh, what do they give to these people to produce a "death" like state. These are not "risen from dead" they were not dead in the first place. I'm glad they didn't bury these people before their time. Since it is "common" I hope they give a longer viewing/funeral period before a person can be put in the ground and re examine the bodies before burial, just in case! Geesh!

    That's what a wake is for.
