Gulf Today Report
Social media in Lebanon was buzzing with a video of a man who was supposedly dead but was resurrected to life just before his burial with CPR at a cemetery.
The incident was the second of its kind in two days after another happened in Egypt.
The incident took place in the city of Hermel, northeastern Lebanon.
In the video, which went viral on social media, a group of mourners were seen crying around a coffin carrying a man, who was about to be buried, but he suddenly moved.
The mourners tried to provide him with first aid. He was quickly transported by ambulance to receive medical treatment at the hospital.
In the Egyptian city of Idku, a similar incident took place. The mourners confirmed that the dead man, whom they were about to bury, moved and breathed inside his coffin. They took him and rushed to the doctor who confirmed his death.
A state of confusion prevailed among the mourners after some demanded that they respect the dead by burying him. But the relatives of the deceased carried the body again, and took it to a private doctor to examine it in his clinic where the latter confirmed the death of the man.
It is believed that what happened was the result of the illusions of the deceased's relatives. It was advised to bury him as soon as possible.
The mourners returned the body again to the cemetery, performed the funeral prayer for it, and buried it.
