coffin-womanA WOMAN died of suspected heart failure after she woke up in a coffin at her own funeral and went into shock.


Weeping relatives of Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov were praying around her open coffin when the 49-year-old suddenly revived and sat up.

She started screaming in terror when she realised she was about to be buried.

Mukhametzyanov was rushed back to the hospital but she was declared her dead from a suspected heart attack.

Devastated husband Fagili, 51, said: “Her eyes fluttered and we immediately rushed her back to the hospital.

“But she only lived another 12 minutes before she died again, this time for good.

“I am very angry and want some answers. She wasn't dead when they said she was and they could have saved her.”

Fagili plans to sue the hospital. A spokesman for the hospital in Kazan, Russia, said an investigation was underway.
