Back from the dead. A bizarre story out of Egypt today where a 28 year-old man's funeral turned into celebration after he woke-up.

Hamdi Hafez al-Nubi was declared dead from a heat attack that he suffered while working as a waiter. Hospital officials declared him dead and the body was send home for burial. His body was washed in the Islamic tradition and prepared for burial.

A doctor, responsible for signing the death certificate found it strange that Hamadi's body was still warm. He was still alive. The doctor revived him...and his mother who passed when she heard the good news.

Just imagine being buried alive, waking up buried in a casket!

Islamic burial customs dictate that the deceased be buried almost immediately, usually before sunset the next day. Perhaps the Judeao-Christian tradition of 3 days has a certain advantage!
