Chinese woman rises from the dead

Monday, 5 March 2012


There’s one of those curiosity stories in the Daily Mail that may tickle you. Briefly, a 95 year-old Chinese woman died. She was coffined at home and spent the following days being farewelled by her neighbours. 

Six days later — the day before her funeral — neighbours arrived to find the coffin empty. A search discovered the dead woman in her kitchen and, actually, not dead at all. Having not eaten for six days, she was making herself something to eat. 

Read the full story here. Enjoy the photo of the sort of coffin the idiotic Mail thought she may have occupied — a British one in a ‘chapel of rest’ standing in front of a crucifix.
