Greek police are investigating claims that a woman essentially came back to life in her grave not long after being buried, but died when cemetery workers got to her too late.
Reports say that two people were visiting the cemetery when they suddenly heard banging and screaming coming from a woman’s grave an hour after her funeral.
The 49-year-old cancer patient was assumed to be dead, but nobody expected her to be buried alive.
Cemetery workers rushed to dig up the coffin and smash it open, but by that point, it was too late. The woman showed no signs of life when she was reached, and a doctor pronounced her dead at the scene.
A coroner is scheduled to examine the woman’s body following the bizarre turn of events.
