This boy woke up at his own funeral!

You don’t get to hear stories like this folks- this is the stuff of legends.

As reported by the Times of India, a 17 year old boy from Dharwad’s Managundi Village in Karnataka, woke up at his own funeral. He rose up from the dead. #creepy #truestory

Kumar Marewad was bitten by a stay dog over a month ago, developed symptoms such as a high fever and was even admitted to a hospital to eventually be put on a ventilator. The infection spread and his body slowly gave up- with so signs of movement or breathing.

The family assumed he was dead and decided to arrange for a funeral for his last rites. But as soon as they moved the body from the village to the funeral spot, the boy opened his eyes and started twitching his legs! He was breathing pretty fast too!

He was then taken to a hospital for further treatment. Doctors suspect he has meningoencephalitis, an infection caused due to a dog bite.

A gift from the heavens indeed! Hallelujah!
