Dead or Alive?
Stay away from the town in the picture above. This is where thirty-four year old Brighton Dama Zanthe, from Gweru, Zimbabwe was lying dead in his casket when his boss, attending his funeral, walked by. His boss noticed the dead man’s legs quivering. It was reported that the man had died after suffering from a long illness. After ‘passing away’ his family arranged for his funeral which was conducted the following day.
Other startled friends and relatives, appearing shocked, scattered throughout the mortuary, as they filed past the casket and observed the dead man moving. An ambulance was called and arrived within seven minutes. Zanthe was taken to Gweru Provincial Hospital following the shocking incident. He remained on life support for the following two days. He was then sent home.
Fortunately, the dead-man-turned-alive said he did not recollect what had transpired. He said, “This issue can be best told by people who came to my house to attend my funeral. I don’t know what happened and I only remember being on a life support system in the hospital.”
Hopefully, when the sick man actually dies, in the future, some authority figure will check his body to make certain he is dead.
