Grandmother 'resurrects' after 12 days

A 67-year-old woman who was presumed dead stunned family members when she woke up a few days later.

Mama Victoria Gbemisola Babatunde from Nigeria would have been buried the very next day had nationwide strikes against the removal of fuel subsidies not prevented some members of her family from meeting up to arrange her burial. "Contrary to our expectation, the nationwide strike lasted for more than a week thereby further delaying our journey to make the burial arrangements," said her son-in-law Pastor Andrew Ozoemena.

"We did not realize that God was already doing a miracle, but on the fifth day after her demise, my brother in-law called to inform us that her body had begun to grow warm. In a dramatic turn of events, Mama sneezed and opened her eyes on the ninth day of her death, as the mortuary attendant was busy taking care of her body. Three days after this incident, that is, on 20 January, the 12th day of her being pronounced dead, she spoke to her younger brother (Pastor Amos) and even drank water and ate some food."

"A 67-year old mother of three resurrected 12 days after being pronounced clinically dead! Stranger than fiction you might say."

Well i admit,I skimmed over the article.The minute I saw it was Nigeria,it registered as zombie powder. The Nigerians have herbs they cannot even detect with modern tests. Stuff we have no knowledge of,indiginous to the area.So who knows what they can do to make such a scenario occur. My bets are zombie powder ,if its real. She looks with it though.A lot of haitian zombie powders make the individual a bit wonky when they ,"come back to life". Some brain cell death must occur.Just a guess,but it seems like a reasonable one. What is zombie powder?

What is zombie powder? Zombie powder is a mixture of ingredients that causes people to look as if they have died,but its merely slowed down their metabolism. It's contents can vary ,depending upon who makes it,but various ingredients always remain constant. One is poison from a puffer fish,and one is secretions from the bufo frog. Every bokor,has a personal recipe . (And it is the same puffer fsh that the Japanese eat as a delicacy,BTW) It's probably most commonly used in Haiti,but its used where ever voodoo is in play,usually. If one ingests the powder,they say when you are revived,your will ... [More]

What is zombie powder? Zombie powder is a real poison that causes most body functions to shut down. Psychological symptoms are similar to a stroke or concussion: incapable of thinking clearly, easily persuaded, TERRIBLE judgement, and almost total amnesia, to name a few. Zombie powder lowers a person's resting heart and breathing rate to an almost imperceptible level. If the 'zombie' stayed completely still, any hospital would pronounce them dead. There IS a possibility of the zombie brain keeping all of the following (mostly) intact: Motor control, Speech recognition, Memory, while destroying... [More]

This is why I think that urban legend stories about burried alive is truthfull stories. Look at this article. Well even Edgar Allen poe wrote the Premature Burial,probably from hearing a local tale . I think before the invention of things like ekg machines etc,people were mistakenly buried,while still alive,quite a bit. I heard stories about alleged vampirism coming into being this way,down in new Orleans. I forget the details now ......

Clurophune? I don't even think this story is real. Did anyone else catch this? I googled that and the only thing that comes up is this article, on multiple pages. Her testimony is pure bull****. Life after death interviews are usually described the same way, the way she describes it is pretty funny. Streets of gold, and angels singing. I call hoax propagated by the son, or this **** didn't even happen.

yes zombie powder does seem like a more than logical explaination either zombie powder or she was in a coma
Comment icon #20 Posted by csspwns on 28 April, 2012, 3:42
now u ppl are probably gonna say how she survived for 12 days. zombie powder makes yur bloodstream flow slower and lowers yur heart rate till u are right at the brink of death. in a coma everything in yur body slows down but u can stll feel the heart rate so im probably suspecting zombie powder. btw god is fake. y resurrect this person but born stephen hawkings with and injury?
