A 95-year-old Chinese woman thought to have passed away stunned her neighbours - after waking up six days after she had been placed in a coffin.

Li Xiufeng was found motionless and not breathing in bed by a neighbour two weeks after tripping and suffering a head injury at her home in Beiliu, Guangxi Province.

Good thing that they didn't send her for an autopsy or to be embalmed!

Despite cheating death, however, the same Chinese tradition left Mrs Xiufeng without any possessions, according to ritual, after a person dies, all their belongings must be burnt.

I would be ticked if I came back from the dead to find out all my stuff had been burned.  <_<

The proverbial coffin-dodger!

Was probably wishful-thinking that led to them sticking her in the box.  lol

Oops...nice coffin though. At least her friends and relatives were giving her a good send off. I suspect they'll now have to take up a collection to buy her some stuff!

In the last century, graves often had bells with strings leading to the coffin, in case of people being buried alive.
Maybe not that stupid...

You'd still have a nice coffin to show for it though!

I know that if a vampire or a zombie bites you, you turn in to one... but what if they gum you?
