Living dead: These people have risen from the grave

Toraja walking dead

There are many strange and unexplained cases in which people were declared dead, but after a few hours or days went back to life. Some of us would consider that is a part of God, while others argue that there is a scientific and medical explanation.

Walter Williams (USA)
78-year-old Walter from Mississippi died late Wednesday night. Thursday, he was back to life. Williams’ family believes his second chance at life is a gift from God.
“After they got through checking him, the coroner, they pronounced him dead and put him in a plastic bag, zipped him up and took him, put him in the hearse and they left,” says Eddie Hester, Williams’ nephew.
Two hours later, while some family was mourning and others were sleeping after an emotional day, they got a phone call.
“The mortician said something wasn’t right,” says Williams’ daughter, Martha A. Lewis. “His leg started moving.”
The family was told to go straight to the hospital. The man they thought was dead was back to life. Instead of planning a funeral, this family is celebrating, singing Snowball’s favorite song outside the hospital. (source:

Lyudmila Steblitskaya (Russia)
On two separate occasions, retired cook Lyudmila Steblitskaya has returned from the dead, once minutes before she was to be cut open for an autopsy.
The first time, back in November 2011, Lyudmila was admitted to Tomsk Regional Clinical Hospital after complaining that she didn’t feel well. When daughter Anastasia Steblitskaya, 29, called the hospital to check on her mother, a staff member informed her that Lyudmila was dead.
Devastated, Anastasia began making preparations for her mother’s funeral. She informed friends and family and spent 60,000 roubles (nearly $2,000) on a casket, grave digging and food for the mourners who would attend the funeral.
Three days after being informed of Lyudmila’s death, Anastasia went to the hospital to collect her body. But staff told her the autopsy had not yet been performed, and that she should wait a while. While she was waiting, a doctor came out and told her that her mother had ‘come back to life’ and was in her bed, breathing.
But two months ago, Lyudmila once again found herself in the hospital with heart trouble. And once again, she ‘died.’ But unlike in 2011, when she spent three days in a freezing morgue, doctors were able to revive her after a few hours. (source:

Hamdi Hafez al-Nubi (Egypt)
Here’s a sure-fire way to ruin a perfectly good funeral: wake the corpse up. It happened two years ago in Egypt. Hamdi Hafez al-Nubi of the village of Naga al-Simman suffered a heart attack while working as a waiter. Hospital officials pronounced the 28-year-old man dead. His family says grieving relatives took him home and, according to Islamic tradition, washed his body and prepared him for burial Friday evening. A doctor sent to sign the death certificate found it strange that his body was warm. At closer observation she discovered he was still alive. His mother fainted upon hearing the good news.
But the funeral was not a waste – the family turned it into a celebration of al-Nubi’s survival. (source:

Li Xiufeng (China)
An elderly Chinese woman shocked her neighbors when she came back to life six days after ‘dying’. Neighbors originally thought Li Xiufeng, 95, of Beiliu, Guangxi, was dead after she showed no signs of life and placed her in a coffin where she lay for six days. They got a surprise, however, when they found her coffin empty and Li cooking in the kitchen. Reports said medical workers called the phenomenon ‘artificial death,’ as Li had stopped breathing while her body remained warm. (source:

Cohan Jones (Britain)
A mother who was told her precious baby boy had died in the womb three months before his due date has told of her joy as her little boy celebrates his first birthday.
Alex Jones, 21, from Gurnos, Merthyr Tydfil, was given the horrifying news that, after falling seriously ill just 24 weeks into her pregnancy, her baby had no heartbeat.
But, after going through a heartbreaking labour to deliver her a child she had been told would be lifeless, both Alex and medics had the shock of their lives.
The tiny little boy, who weighed just 1lb 11oz, and has now been named Cohan, was breathing. (source:
