A man declared dead after being found under the rubble of the earthquake that struck Syria “comes back to life” at his funeral. Rescue teams found Ahmed al-Maghrabi and he was pulled from a collapsed building in the Syrian city of Atarib.
During the service, he showed no vital signs and was declared dead by the specialists. Doctors and paramedics put his body in the refrigerator for two days while they waited for family members to arrive to identify him.
According to the British Daily Star, once his relatives confirmed that he was Ahmed, he was placed in a body bag and taken to a cemetery for funeral processions. However, surprisingly, as soon as the corpse reached the cemetery, it began to move. When funeral home workers opened the coffin, the man was found alive and apparently in good health.
