A 95 year old Chinese lady comes back to life, after everyone thought she had died from falling and hitting her head. Apparently, the village she lived in had planed her funeral, and had her placed in a coffin in her home where locals could come to pay their respects. The day before Li Xiufeng’s funeral (6 days after being placed in her coffin), she wakes up, pushes the coffin lid off, and then decides to head to her kitchen and make herself something to eat!
‘I slept for a long time. After waking up, I felt so hungry, and wanted to cook something to eat.’
A 95-year-old Chinese woman thought to have passed away stunned her neighbours – after waking up six days after she had been placed in a coffin. Li Xiufeng was found motionless and not breathing in bed by a neighbour two weeks after tripping and suffering a head injury at her home in Beiliu, Guangxi Province.
When the neighbour who found her could not wake the pensioner up, they feared the worst and thought the elderly woman had passed away.
Back from the dead:
Li Xiufeng, 95, stunned neighbours by ‘waking up’ from her coffin the day before her funeral. She was placed in a coffin which was kept in her house unsealed under Chinese tradition for friends and relatives to pay respects. But the day before the funeral, neighbours found an empty coffin, and later discovered the 95-year-old, who had since woken up, in her kitchen cooking.
Neighbour Chen Qingwang, 60, who originally found Mrs Xiufeng, said:
‘She didn’t get up, so I came up to wake her up.
‘No matter how hard I pushed her and called her name, she had no reactions.
‘I felt something was wrong, so I tried her breath, and she has gone, but her body is still not cold.’
As Mrs Xiufeng lived alone, Mr Qingwang and his son made preparations for her funeral, and the ‘dead’ woman was left in her coffin two days after she was discovered.
The day before she was due to be permanently laid to rest, however, Mr Qingwang arrived at his neighbour’s property and found her ‘corpse’ had disappeared.
