"What’s happening? Are you preparing my funeral?" were the first words of Huang Mingquan who found himself lying in a wooden coffin and surrounded by his family. According to Chinese media, Mr Mingquan, aged 75, "stopped breathing" and had "cold feet and hands" when he was believed to pass away by his son and other relatives. Soon afterwards a mourning family gathered to say the last farewell to Huang and mourn his death but apparently got the shock of their lives.
Eight hours into the man’s funeral service, he opened the lid of the coffin, sat up and saw wreaths, ornaments, banners from his loved ones. Huang's stunned children immediately lifted their old dad from the coffin and put him back on to his bed. Days after his miraculous resurrecion the pensioner is still rather weak and bed bound. His family is still trying to comprehend what had happened days ago.
