Egyptian Man Wakes Up at His Funeral

Here's a sure-fire way to ruin a perfectly good funeral: wake the corpse up. It happened last week in Egypt. Hamdi Hafez al-Nubi of the village of Naga al-Simman suffered a heart attack while working as a waiter. Hospital officials pronounced the 28-year-old man dead.
His family says grieving relatives took him home and, according to Islamic tradition, washed his body and prepared him for burial Friday evening.

A doctor sent to sign the death certificate found it strange that his body was warm. At closer observation she discovered he was still alive.

His mother fainted upon hearing the good news.

But the funeral was not a waste- the family turned it into a celebration of al-Nubi's survival. Link
