‘Dead’ Woman Bangs on Coffin During Her Own Wake, Gets Rescued by Shocked Son

A 76-year-old woman, who was declared dead at a hospital in Ecuador, banged on her coffin during her own wake and was rescued by her son and other mourners.

Her son Gilberto Barbera said: “There were about 20 of us there.

“After about five hours of the wake, the coffin started to make sounds.

“My mom was wrapped in sheets and hitting the coffin, and when we approached we could see that she was breathing heavily.

“I lifted up the coffin, and her heart was pounding, and her left hand was hitting the coffin.

“We called 911 to bring her here to the hospital,” he said in a video posted on social media.

“It gave us all a fright.

“My mom is on oxygen.

“Her heart is stable,” he added.

“The doctor pinched her hand and she reacted.

“They tell me that this is good because it means that she is reacting little by little.

“I want her alive and by my side.”



According to CNN:

A state investigation is now underway, according to the Ministry of Public Health.

It says the woman had been admitted Friday to the hospital with a possible stroke and cardiopulmonary arrest, and after she didn’t respond to resuscitation protocol, a doctor on duty declared her dead.

The video also goes on to show her hospital tags and then her son, who is shown pleading for an ambulance to arrive.
