ECUADOR: ‘Dead’ Woman Found Alive In coffin @ Her Own Funeral

Mourners at an Ecuadorian wake were left stunned after the “dead” woman began banging on the inside of her coffin.

Last week, retired Nurse, Bella Montoya was pronounced dead at the age of 76 due to a stroke, during her wake gathering while family members were preparing Montoya for burial, they discovered that she was breathing.

Bella’s son, Gilbert Balberán, told a local news outlet: “My mother started to move the left hand, open her eyes, the mouth. She was making an effort to breathe.”

“The doctor at noon told me that my mother was dead and was not at the facility,” he continued. “Another one saw me and he gave her oxygen, they intubated her and took her to an (ICU) room where she is under observation.”

Footage of the startling event has since circulated on social media. The clip shows the woman gasping for air in her coffin with several people surrounding her calling for an ambulance. Medics are then seen arriving and then moving her onto a stretcher.

Montoya has since been taken back to the hospital where she’s in intensive care. Ecuador’s health ministry now has a committee investigating the bizarre incident.
