A 76-year-old woman surprised guests at her ow wake when she knocked on the coffin lid…
Her son Gilberto Barbera said in a video posted on social media,
I lifted up the coffin, and her heart was pounding, and her left hand was hitting the coffin… We called 911 to bring her here to the hospital.”
The woman had been admitted Friday to the hospital with a possible stroke and cardiopulmonary arrest, and after she didn’t respond to resuscitation protocol, a doctor on duty declared her dead.
The woman’s name is reported to be Bella Yolanda Montoya Castro, corresponding to the initials “B.Y.M.C” used in Ecuador’s Health Ministry statement issued on Sunday.
The ministry went on to say that, in coordination with the Health Services Quality Assurance Agency, a national technical committee was formed
OMG. Glad she woke up before they took her to the cemetery!
