An Egyptian waiter “wakes” from the dead. The funeral of a 28-year-old waiter in southern Egypt turned celebratory when he woke up during his own funeral.
Hamdi Hafez al-Nubi, who came from the village of Naga al-Simman in the southern governorate of Luxor, Egypt, was pronounced dead after he suffered a heart attack while working. According to Islamic tradition, his relatives took him home, washed his body and prepared him for burial Friday evening.
A doctor sent to sign the death certificate found it strange that his body was warm. Upon closer observation, she discovered he was still alive. His mother fainted upon hearing the good news. With the doctor’s assistance, both al-Nubi and his mother were awakened and soon were celebrating with guests at what would have been his funeral
Although it may seem unbelievable that an Egyptian waiter “wakes” from the dead, there have been other cases. In July, 2011 a man woke up in a South African Morgue after he too was mistaken for dead.
