A Brazilian Father Claims His Two-Year-Old Son, Who Had Been Pronounced Dead, Sat Up During His Funeral In Belem Brazil
A Brazilian father claims his two-year-old son, who had been pronounced dead, sat up during his funeral and asked for water. Kelvin Santos stopped breathing while being treated for pneumonia at the Aberlardo Santos Hospital in Belem, northern Brazil on June 1, OPOVO reports. He was declared dead at 7.40pm on Friday and his body was handed over to his family who held a wake throughout the night with Kelvin’s body displayed in an open casket. On Saturday, an hour before he was due to be buried, witnesses claim the boy sat up in his coffin and said to his father Antonio, “Daddy, can I have some water?” Mr Santos said at that point “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.” But the father’s joy was short-lived. “Then Kelvin just laid back down, the way he was. We couldn’t wake him. He was dead again,” Mr Santos said. The boy’s family delayed the burial for an hour in the hope that he would wake again but he was interred at 5pm on Saturday.
