One really really thirsty ‘dead’ baby!

Ok, this zombie thing is really getting out of hand…In a case that seems almost too unbelievable to be true – Brazilian news media claimed that 2 year old Kelvin Santos stopped breathing during treatment for pneumonia at a hospital in Belem, northern Brazil.

He was declared dead at 7.40pm on Friday and his body was handed over to his family in a plastic bag. But an hour before his funeral was due to take place on Saturday the boy apparently sat up in his coffin and said: ‘Daddy, can I have some water?’.

The boy’s 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.

Everyone was shocked, some people fainted and others started praying and praising God. Mr. Santos immediately gave him a cup of water, then the boy layed down and didn’t move again. Kelvin’s father rushed him back to the hospital in Belem, where the doctors reexamined the boy. However, doctors confirmed again that he had no signs of life. The child had been dead for about 20 hours before he rose.

Later that day, the boy’s family decided to delay the funeral for an hour in the hope that he would wake up again, but ended up burying him at 5pm that day in a local cemetery.

  1. I’ve got it all figured out!

    Do you have a link to this story from the newspaper that printed it? I’m having a hard time believing this one.

  3. Depending on if someone tried to revive him before he was handed over to his family, this could possibly be a case of The Lazarus Syndrome, when a dead body returns to life unexpectedly. If someone tried to administer CPR after he died, the chest compression could have temporarily restarted his heart before he died again. Either that or he was mistakenly declared dead and woke up hours later only to die again later.

    It’s just unbelievable that the boy lived the world twice even though he was declared dead.

  5. I feel this is one of the most significant information for me.
