A two year-old toddler who was pronounced dead, sat up on his coffin during his funeral and asked his father for a drink of water before laying lifeless in the coffin once again, according to Brazilian news sources.
Kelvin Santos was declared deceased after he stopped breathing due to complications from bronchial pneumonia at Aberlardo Santos Hospital in the northern Brazilian city of Belem. SBT, one of Brazil’s leading TV networks, reported that while awaiting for the body to be released into family custody, the infant was placed in an airtight body bag for three hours.
The family gathered for an open-casket wake later that day, where, according to the two year-old’s aunt, during which the infant repeatedly “appeared to move”, before apparently sitting at up and asking his father for a drink of water.
The entire family thought they had witnessed a miracle and that Kelvin had in fact come back to life. But a few seconds later, the little boy’s body fell back in the casket and the family couldn’t revive him again.
He must’ve been on bath salts or something.
