Russian Woman Dies at Her Own Funeral

by J-Mirabelli

Edgar Allan Poe wrote "The Premature Burial", which was published in 1844. It contained accounts of supposedly genuine cases of premature burial as well as detailing the narrator's own (perceived) interment while still alive.

Waking up at your own funeral is probably on everyone’s top ten list of ‘the worst things that could happen’. That’s exactly what happened to a Russian woman in Kazan, who woke up to a room full of relatives mourning her death. Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, 49, died from a heart attack caused by shock after waking up to discover she had been declared dead and was being prepared for burial.

As mourning relatives filed past her open coffin, the supposedly dead woman suddenly woke up and started screaming as she realised where she was. She had been wrongly declared deceased by doctors but died for real after hearing mourners saying prayers for her soul to be taken up to heaven.

Devastated husband Fagili Mukhametzyanov, 51, had been told his wife had died of a heart attack after she’d collapsed at home suffering from chest pains.

Mr. Mukhametzyanov said, “Her eyes fluttered and we immediately rushed her back to the hospital but she only lived for another 12 minutes in intensive care before she died again, this time for good.

I am very angry and want answers. She wasn’t dead when they said she was and they could have saved her.” Hospital spokesman Minsalih Sahapov said the incident is under investigation.
