ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines — A video has surfaced online that apparently shows a 3-year-old girl, who was clinically dead, waking up during her funeral service at a church in Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur, according to The Phillippine Star.
A video of the funeral went viral and police confirmed the incident to the paper, citing reports from personnel dispatched to verify the case.
The video apparently shows the girl being prepared for her funeral. Moments later, the girl started breathing and was removed from her coffin by her father.
According to reports, she had experienced a severe fever for several days.
“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.,” Teelan told The Phillippine Star.
The family started to prepare her for her funeral service. The family then went to the church where a priest administered the last sacrament. Based on reports, a mourner who removed the cover of the coffin observed the girl’s head move.
“This prompted them to check and confirmed the girl had pulse and was alive,” Teelan said.
The girl was immediately given water and taken to a clinic for a check-up. The girl was then taken home.
The family is now reportedly searching for a hospital that can provide better care.
