Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, 49, collapsed at her home with chest pains. After being rushed to hospital in Kazan, the doctors concluded she had died of a fatal heart attack. She was dead they concluded. Two days later her family and other mourners gathered around the open casket for the funeral.
Then she woke up.
Her eyes fluttered open after those two comatose days, and she heard people praying for her soul in heaven. She saw the edges of the casket in her vision. She realised where she was and began to scream. She was then immediately rushed to hospital again – this time she was alive, but only for 12 minutes in the Intensive Care Unit before she died again, the shock of being at her own funeral killed her.
This curious case has caused great grief for the husband, “She wasn’t dead when they said she was and they could have saved her.” The case has now started an investigation into this shocking case and exactly how the doctors missed this. Whatever the case it was far beyond normal in this situation, it’s quite surprising that the husband didn’t die of shock.
