Reports say that the woman was gasping for air after her loved ones opened the coffin to change her clothes. The son of the resurrected woman also disclosed she was hitting the coffin with her left hand when she woke up.
“We are here at 509 Olmedo Street, where a person who was declared dead in the hospital has been in the coffin since noon, and it turns out the lady is alive. At this moment, we can see that she has vital signs,” the person said.
“She is struggling to breathe; we called the emergency services, but they told us they will call us back and that there is no ambulance.”
Luckily, she managed to get to an ICU ward, where she is understood to still be.
“My mum is on oxygen. Her heart is stable. The doctor pinched her hand, and she reacted; they tell me that is a good sign because it means she is slowly responding,” her son said.
Gilbert said: “I am slowly coming to terms with what has happened. Now, I only ask for my mother’s health to improve. I want her to be alive and by my side.”
