(Wednesday, May 15) -Mourners freaked out when a dead man came back to life at his own funeral.
Friends and family “jumped out of their skins” and “ran for their lives” when Brighton Dama Zanthe, 34, started moving in his coffin last Monday.
They thought their buddy — who they thought died following a long illness — had come back to haunt them.
Lot Gaka, the Zimbabwean transport worker’s boss, somehow managed to keep his cool – springing into action to save his pal.
He desperately pulled the blankets off Zanthe’s body and called an ambulance.
Rushed to the nearby Gweru Provincial Hospital, he spent two days in intensive care before being discharged last week.
“I don’t know what happened, and I only remember being on a life support system in hospital,” NewZimbabwe.com reports him as saying.
He added: “Everything is history to me. What I can only confirm is that people gathered at my house to mourn but I was given another chance and I am alive. I feel okay now.”
