Just moments before his resurrection, the seemingly lifeless body of Deepak Singh, 72, was sprawled out on a funeral pyre as grief-stricken relatives mourned their loss, Central European News reports.
The man’s grandson Banda Nalwa was convinced that his grandfather died when he collapsed while tending his cattle.
A local doctor was called and confirmed Singh’s death.
Preparations were made to give the man a proper send-off. His siblings were getting ready to ignite the wooden funeral pyre when Singh shockingly jolted back to life.
He had apparently heard the family’s death wail — a custom in India of saying farewell to a loved one — from beyond the grave, according to CEN.
