Well played. I was fascinated by how he learned to speak English when dead.

If you read the article you'd notice the body wasn't embalmed, they literally just handed it over to the family. Dead bodies can do some strange things when they're decomposing.

Probably has something to do with metric farktons of incense and dreamstate-enhanced hallucinations. And everyone knows religious people are believe-first, don't bother about questions.

I would say it's equally possible that a two year old boy had a very terrifying suffocation death.

Here's what passes for due diligence when your kid wakes up from the dead:

FTA - "The boy's family decided to delay the funeral for an hour in the hope that he would wake up again"


"okey-dokey, my boy... you got till this episode of Law & Order is over to snap out of it, then you going in the ground."

It's just gas escaping. I worked in a morgue for three years, you see shiat like this happen ALL the time. Once a dead man woke up and played two full games of chess with me. Collapsed in the middle of our tiebreaker. The whole ordeal: gas escaping.

Seems kinda odd that, if waking up from a coma, that you'd sit up and ask for water. I mean, calling out for Mom and Dad, or asking what's happening. But just "hey, can I get some water here, uh never mind... (thud)". I'm not saying it's impossible, but sounds odd.

Maybe the kid's just faking?

Because when you are in a coma you don't know about all the time that has passed. You wake up at the same time that you went to sleep.
And he's just two. Probably only knows "water" "poo poo" "pee pee" and "damn, look at those titties!"

I just hope they embalmed him before they buried him, or he's going to hit his head when he sits up again.

"WATER!!"

After 27 years in the funeral business I can tell you this, bullhshiat.

In the 1800's people used to be so afraid of being burried alive, they bought caskets with a lever or a rope installed on the inside they could grab if they woke up and had been burried. The lever or rope would activate a flag or bell above ground to tell the world they were still alive. People who attended the grave all night were refered to as working the "Graveyard Shift".

If you do not have the advantage of "Expert signs of death" available , wait 48 hours and the skin on the belly will start to turn green (putrafaction) - If you see that (and odor) you know for sure that person is dead.

The very first thing they taught us in mortuary science college was verifing that the person you are about to embalm is in fact dead. Good idea.

You mean like asking for glass of water?

Anyway, I hope it is fake because if it isn't and they've put him in the ground...

I don't think you have to worry about that. The boy was handed over to the dad in a plastic bag. Even if he had been alive when the doctors stuck him in there that tends to render you dead rather quickly. I have been around some quite dead people when their family members insisted they could hear them breathing, talking, etc... Grief plays some strange tricks on the mind. Finally, I would think that anyone would wait more than an hour to stick a kid in the ground who had already proven once to only be mostly dead. Anyway, the kid clearly said "to bluff" in Portugese.
 
2012-06-07 06:59:14 AM  
Wow, they really DO want ice water....
 
2012-06-07 07:05:26 AM  
If they took him back to the same hospital that declared him dead the first time, hopefully they'll wait a few days to bury him...just in case.
 
2012-06-07 07:06:28 AM  
Jesus?

Dead people don't just wake up and talk

So, you give them an hour and if they don't say anything, you go and bury them? I'm voting 'fake'

He clearly said "To Blave", and as we all know to blave means to bluff. So the kid was probably playing cards, and he cheated.

No, really, I am. I figure some idiot of a third world, favela dwelling ghetto doctor declared the child dead without a thorough examination, listening to heart tones, checking pupils, or running an EKG, and the kid woke up long enough to ask for water before dying.

Kid: Psych!

MrDon: The very first thing they taught us in mortuary science college was verifing that the person you are about to embalm is in fact dead


Well, if you go ahead and embalm them, you will know they are dead for sure. Saves time.
 
2012-06-07 07:33:12 AM  
Sounds legit.
 
2012-06-07 07:33:14 AM  
If he did that he wasn't dead. He may be suffering from a brain tumor or another kind of malfunction of the brain.

They murdered him.
 
2012-06-07 07:35:47 AM  
I have a little boy (3, almost 4), and if that kind of thing happened, there is no FARKING way I'd bury him anyway the same day, doctors saying he's really dead or not. I've read enough Edgar Allen Poe and I'd try to get some better doctors.
