Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, Russian Woman, Dies At Her Own Funeral

A 49-year-old Russian woman mistakenly pronounced dead by doctors died from a heart attack from the shock of waking up at her own funeral.

According to the New York Daily News, Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov woke up in a coffin surrounded by mourning relatives praying for her soul. She began screaming hysterically once she realized she was about to be buried alive.

“Her eyes fluttered and we immediately rushed her back to the hospital but she only lived for another 12 minutes,” her husband Fagili Mukhametzyanov told reporters. “I am very angry and want answers. She wasn’t dead when they said she was and they could have saved her,” he added, telling the Sun that he was planning on suing the hospital.

Minsalih Sahapov, a spokesman at the hospital, which is in the city of Kazan, said an investigation is underway.

According to the Huffington Post, this sort of thing has happened before. A premature baby boy declared dead in Paraguay in 2009 reportedly woke up just before his funeral, then died later.

      America is one of the few places that does embalming, and most people in other countries find the practice disgusting.
