Brazilian news websites are reporting on a bizarre story about a two-year-old  boy who, originally presumed dead, woke up at his own funeral, and asked his  father for a drink of water before lying back down again in his coffin,  lifeless.

According to news sources from Brazil, Kelvin Santos was  declared dead after he stopped breathing due to complications from pneumonia at  a hospital in Belem, northern  Brazil.

SBT — the Brazilian equivalent of CNN — reported that the boy was declared  dead Friday night at 7:40 pm, and his body was released to his family in an  airtight plastic bag, where he remained  for up to three hours before his family gathered later that night for a  wake.

The two-year-old’s father Antonio Santos said that the next  day, while the family was grieving over little Kelvin Santos’ open coffin  shortly before his funeral, the boy sat up, and asked, “Daddy, can I have some  water?”

“Everybody started to scream, we couldn’t believe our eyes,” Santos told SBT. “Then we thought a miracle had taken place and our boy had come back to life … Then Kelvin just laid back down, the way he was. We couldn’t wake him. He was  dead again.”

Mr. Santos rushed his son back to the  hospital, where doctors re-examined the boy and pronounced him dead a  second time. “They assured me that he really was dead and gave me no explanation  for what we had just seen and heard,” he said.

Hoping that little Kelvin would wake up again, his family decided to delay  his funeral for at least an hour … but he didn’t wake up, and he was buried  later that day in a local cemetery.

Mr. Santos says that he believes his son was the victim of malpractice, and has filed a formal complaint with the  police who have launched an investigation.

“Fifteen minutes after rushing him away for resuscitation, they came and told  me he was dead and handed me his body,” Santos said. “Perhaps they didn’t  examine him properly. Dead people don’t  just wake up and talk. I’m determined to find out the truth.”
