Russian woman dies from heart attack after waking up at her own funeral

June 24, 2011 - London

A Russian woman who had been wrongly declared deceased by doctors died for real from a Heart attack caused by shock after waking up to discover she was being prepared for burial.

As mourning relatives filed past her open coffin the supposedly dead woman suddenly woke up and started screaming as she realized where she was.

Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, 49, died again after hearing mourners saying prayers for her soul to be taken up to heaven in Kazan, Russia.

Devastated husband Fagili Mukhametzyanov, 51, had been told his wife had died of a Heart attack after she'd collapsed at home suffering from chest pains.

"Her eyes fluttered and we immediately rushed her back to the hospital but she only lived for another 12 minutes in intensive care before she died again, this time for good," the Daily Mail quoted Mukhametzyanov as saying.

"I am very angry and want answers. She wasn't dead when they said she was and they could have saved her," he said.
