This story has me simultaneously scratching my head wondering "what the fuck?!" while also feeling incredibly sad at the same exact time.
A two-year-old Brazilian boy, Kelvin Santos, stopped breathing during a treatment for pneumonia and was declared dead at 7:40pm on Friday. His body was handed over to his family in a plastic bag, and the devastated family took him home where they held a wake for him.
Throughout the night the little boy's body laid in an open coffin, but an hour before his funeral was supposed to take place on Saturday, the boy apparently sat up in his coffin and said: "Daddy, can I have some water?".
The boy's stunned 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."
Unfortunately the "miracle" was short lived, because shortly after waking, the little boy laid back down, just the way he was. The family could not wake him, and he was dead again.
The father rushed his son back to the Aberlardo Santos hospital in Belem, and doctors reexamined the boy, but unfortunately confirmed that he had no signs of life.
"They assured me that he really was dead and gave me no explanation for what we had just seen and heard."
The 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.
What an awful situation all around. As if losing a child isn't one of the most horrible things a person can suffer through, being "teased" by God at the thought of the child coming back to life, just to have that dream shattered is really heart breaking.
Life (and death) is a crazy thing.
