Presumed Dead 3-Year-Old Filipino Girl Wakes Up at Her Own Funeral

The Public Pay Their Respects To Jimmy Saville Ahead Of His Funeral

I can promise that this will be the craziest story that you read all day. A presumed dead three-year-old Filipino girl awoke inside her coffin at her own funeral on Sunday. Apparently, during the middle of the church services, the young Filipino girl suddenly began to move. When those in attendance opened the coffin, they saw her head move, before one of the mourners (most likely her father or someone closely related to her) picked up her up out of the coffin and carried her out of the church (which can be seen in the video at the bottom of the article). The girl was given water and had her pulse confirmed before being taken immediately to the closest possible clinic to confirm that she was in fact alive.

According police in the area, the three-year-old Filipino girl was pronounced dead this past Saturday after battling a horrible fever throughout the week.

“The attending clinic personnel and physician confirmed that the young patient had no more pulse and was clinically dead,”the Aurora police chief told reporters after the incident.

The young girl reportedly remains alive but in a “comatose” state. Her family is having her cared for at a nearby hospital, according to the police chief.

While this is certainly not the first time that this has ever happened, it’s amazing to hear about, and something that I, myself, truly consider to be a miracle. I wish the girl and all of her loved ones the very best moving forward.

Also, for anyone who wanted to see it, here’s the video of the girl reportedly waking up and being carried out of the church.
