Boy woke up from coffin, ask for water then back to dead.
‘Dead' boy wakes up and asks for water at funeral in Brazil
A TWO-YEAR-OLD boy sat up in his coffin and asked for water before laying back down again lifeless, according to a Brazilian news website.
Website ORM claimed that Kelvin Santos stopped breathing during treatment for pneumonia at a hospital in Belem, northern Brazil.
He was declared dead at 7.40pm on Friday and his body was handed over to his family in a plastic bag.
The child's devastated family took him home where grieving relatives held a wake throughout the night, with the boy's body laid in an open coffin.
But an hour before his funeral was due to take place on Saturday the boy apparently sat up in his coffin and said: "Daddy, can I have some water?".
The boy's father, Antonio Santos, said: "Everybody started to scream, we couldn't believe our eyes. Then we thought a miracle had taken place and our boy had come back to life.
"Then Kelvin just laid back down, the way he was. We couldn't wake him. He was dead again."

I'm sure it's hoax. However, I thought that one of comment is funny...
"Doctor, quick! It turns out my son isn't dead! He just sat up and asked for water."
"Well did you give him water?"
"Well that's good, a dead person wouldn't know what to do with a glass of water, amirite? Just go bury him."
"But doesn't the fact that he asked for water mean he's not dead?"
"No that's common. It's called, umm, post-hypo-hydro-desirucus. After death the human body sometimes has lingering nerve transmissions that cause it to ... uh ... sit up and ask for water."
"Just bury him dude, alright?"
"But I think he's still alive!"
doctor pulls out a stethoscope, slides it along the wall, licks the tip of his finger and holds it into the air to check the wind
"No sir, I'm afraid he's dead."
"What about the noise he's making right now? It sounds like snoring."
"That's just gas leaving the body, please go bury your child."
Child gets up and walks off the examination table
"Daddy I want to go home"
"Will someone please shut this dead kid up and bury him already!?"
