Walterio Goncalves, in Brazil, had a shock when he went to prepare his brother's corpse for the funeral and found him moving around inside the body bag.

His brother Valdelucio had apparently died due to stomach cancer, and was due to be buried that day.

Goncalves explains, "We had already made all the arrangements for my brother’s funeral. All I needed to do was put some new clothes on him, so he’d be ready for the undertaker to come and collect him. Workers at the morgue let me in, and showed me where he was lying, in a zipped-up body bag. But as I got closer I could see it wriggling. Then he saw it raising and falling as if he was breathing. I went crazy and shouted for the medical team, the nurse, so they could see what was happening. They checked him and confirmed that he was still alive."

Valdelucio was taken into intensive care after being found alive. His family has now requested he be transferred to another hospital.
