Here’s a little proof that the next time someone you know is declared dead, you might want to get a second opinion.

Hamdi Hafez al-Nubi, a 28-year-old waiter from the southern Egyptian province of Luxor, suffered a heart attack.  Hospital officials declared him dead.  His family took him home to prepare him for burial, as is the Islamic tradition.

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.

With the doctor’s assistance, both al-Nubi and his mother were awakened and soon were celebrating with guests.
