Liu Xiufeng, 95-Year-Old Chinese Woman, Rises from Coffin Six Days After ‘Death’
An elderly Chinese woman has ‘risen from the dead,’ climbing out of her coffin fully six days after she was presumed to have passed away.
Mail Online reports that 95-year-old Lui Xiufeng of Beiliu, Guangxi Province was found “lifeless” in her bed by a neighbor two weeks after suffering a head injury in a fall. Liu was motionless and breathless; her neighbor feared the worst and placed in a coffin so that friends and family could pay their respects in accordance with Chinese tradition.
“No matter how hard I pushed her and called her name, she had no reactions,” neighbor Chen Qingwang, 60, is quoted in Mail Online.
Liu was one day away from her funeral when her neighbors were shocked to find her coffin empty.
“We were so terrified, and immediately asked the neighbours to come for help,” Chen said.
The lucky old woman was found cooking in her kitchen. She reportedly told local villagers, “I slept for a long time. After waking up, I felt so hungry, and wanted to cook something to eat. I pushed the lid for a long time to climb out.”
Doctors say Liu suffered from an “artificial death,” a condition we couldn’t find on Google or Wikipedia but in which the victim– or the lucky person, depending on your point of view– has no breath but their body remains warm.
