A 95-year-old man identify as Budh Ram shocked his family when he woke up at his own funeral saying he was just taking a nap.when he was declared dead by a doctor after he fainted in the North West region of Rajasthan in India.
Ram is said to have been declared dead on Saturday and a priest was summoned to the home to perform the pensioner’s last rites.
Balu Ram, his eldest son, said the family were preparing the customary bath to clean the body before the funeral when the OAP started shivering.
When the water was poured on his chest, the family were shocked to see him shaking so they took him to a bed and he started visibly breathing, reports says.
Ram reportedly sat up and told his grieving relatives he had pain in his chest so he decided to take a nap.
His 65-year-old son hailed it as a “miracle”. This is a very happy Diwali for us. Had my father been dead, we wouldn’t have celebrated the festival as is the norm in any house where a death has occurred. But this time, the celebrations are going to be grand.”
