ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines – A three-year-old girl “woke up” Sunday during her funeral service in a church in Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur, according toThe Phillipine Star. The clinically dead child’s funeral was captured on video that has since gone viral.
The video shows the parents removing the baby from her coffin. Based on reports one of the neighbors removed the cover and saw the head of the girl move.
Police Senior Inspector Heidil Teelan confirmed the incident.
“During that time, the attending clinic personnel and physician confirmed that the young patient had no more pulse and was clinically dead,” Teelan said. “This prompted the child’s family to bring her home and prepare her for funeral service the following day in the church. Once the neighbor saw the girl’s head move the parents immediately gave her water and brought her to the clinic for check-up. The family then reportedly brought the girl back home.”
Before her death the baby girl was in the hospital for several days suffering from a severe fever. The family is now searching for a hospital that can provide better care.
