A man in India who was thought to have died following an accident turned out to be very much alive.
20-year-old Mohammad Furqan, who was rushed to hospital on June 21st, was later declared dead after doctors reported that they had been unable to save his life.

Not long afterwards however, just as Furqan was about to be buried at his funeral, some of the mourners noticed to their surprise that his body appeared to be moving.

"Devastated, we were preparing for the burial when some of us saw movement in his limbs," said his brother Mohammad Irfan. "We immediately took Furqan to the Ram Manohar Lohia hospital where the doctors said he was alive and have put him on ventilator support."
It later transpired that doctors at the private hospital had originally declared him deceased after the family had run out of money to pay for treatment.

A full investigation in to the incident is now ongoing.

"We have taken cognisance of the incident and the matter will be thoroughly probed," said Lucknow chief medical officer Narendra Agarwal.

Definition of death is very similar to definition of sleep or those processes behind what happens when we go to sleep. Only difference is that we came back from sleep but death is irreversible. Doctors are still confused by people waking up after death and that surely points out how little do we actually know about existence. It's still a problem to determine if brain steam (or other vital parts of human body) are in the state of ''irreversible death'' or in some sort of shock and that is why there is no simple and short definition of death and that is why we have ''zombies'' hehe

During a woman's funeral the pallbearers accidentally bump into a wall and hear a faint moan. They open the casket and find out that the woman is actually alive. She lives for 10 more years and then dies. There is another funeral for her. At the end of the service, the pallbearers carry out the casket. As they are walking out, the husband cries out, "Watch out for the wall!"
