Zombie gran: 95-year-old Chinese woman terrifies neighbours by climbing out of her coffin six days after she 'died

Li Xiufeng was found motionless and not breathing in bed by her neighbour more than a fortnight after tripping and suffering a head injury

A 95-year-old Chinese woman terrified her village by climbing out of her coffin after being ‘dead’ for six days.

Li Xiufeng was found motionless and not breathing in bed by her neighbour more than a fortnight after tripping and suffering a head injury at her home in China's Guangxi Province

When he failed to wake her up, Chen Qingwang assumed the frail grandmother had passed away in her sleep, at her home in the village of Liulou, in Beiliu..

Recounting his daily visit to bring the elderly lady breakfast, Mr Qingwang, 60, said: “"She didn't get up, so I came up to wake her up.

"No matter how hard I pushed her and called her name, she had no reactions.

“I felt something was wrong, so I tried her breath, and she has gone, but her body is still not cold."

Because Mrs Xiufeng lived alone, Mr Qingwang and his son made preparations for her funeral, which included keeping the coffin in the house for several days for friends and relatives to pay their last respects.

The ‘dead’ woman was laid in her coffin on February 19, two days after she was discovered.

...

The day before the funeral, Mr Qingwang arrived at his neighbour’s house to find the coffin empty and the corpse gone.

"We were so terrified, and immediately asked the neighbours to come for help," he said.

After searching for the missing body, the villagers were stunned to find Mrs Xiufeng sitting on a stool in her kitchen cooking.

Egyptian man declared dead but wakes up before funeral

Hamdi Hafez al-Nubi's funeral had to be cancelled when he surprised relatives by waking up, hours after he had been pronounced dead.

What should have been a solemn occasion to mark the Egyptian man's passing rapidly turned into a celebration once everyone got over the shock of him still being alive.

The 28-year-old suffered a heart attack while at work and doctors at a local hospital concluded he had died.

His family took the body back to his home village of Naga al-Simman in the province of Luxor and intended to bury him on Friday evening.

They washed and prepared him for the funeral, but when a local doctor arrived to sign the death certificate, she found something strange - the body was still warm.

A more detailed examination revealed he was still very much alive.

Al-Nubi's mother fainted after being told the news, but the doctor soon managed to wake both the mum and son, so that they could join in a party with the rest of the funeral guests.
