In a mysterious case, a two-year-old Brazilian boy, Kelvin Santos, who was pronounced dead after he had stopped breathing at a hospital in Belem, sat up in his coffin just an hour before the funeral, and asked for water.
The dead boy was brought home from the hospital and
laid in an open-casket overnight. Just an hour before the funeral next day, the
boy reportedly sat up in his coffin and said 'Daddy, can I have some water?'
His father Antonio Santos said 'Everybody started to
scream, we couldn't believe our eyes. Then we thought a miracle had taken place
and our boy had come back to life. Then Kelvin just laid back down, the way he
was. We couldn't wake him. He was dead again.'
Antonio rushed the boy to the hospital and he was pronounced
dead again for the second time.
'Fifteen minutes after rushing him away for
resuscitation, they came and told me he was dead and handed me his body.
Perhaps they didn't examine him properly. Dead people don't just wake up and
talk. I'm determined to find out the truth' he said.
