A two year old toddler in Brazil, Kelvin Santos sat up in his coffin just before his funeral and asked for glass of water, drank and then lay back down lifeless a midst of celebration from relatives that he had come back to life. The toddler started grieving only hours after doctors were unable to resuscitate him during treatment o pneumonia.
He apparently smiled,looked around, drank his water and reclined back in his coffin. Dad Antonio Santos could not wake Kelvin again and carried him to hospital in Belem, northern Brazil.But Doctors were mystified as to what happened and it was confirmed that indeed the child was dead.
Mr. Santos said “During the wake i held kelvin and said, son, come back to daddy” And few hours later my son sat up in the coffin and said, ‘daddy give me water’. “Everybody started to scream and we thought our son had come back to life, but then lay down and didn’t move again.
The child died of respiratory complications as result of pneumonia and his dad thinks his son was a victim of medical malpractice and has launched complaint to the police. He believes that dead people don’t just talk.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.
