Thai Rath reported in a widely shared story that a 70 year old grandmother in Udon Thani had "come back to life" as her family were in the final preparations of cremating her yesterday. 

 

They believed she had passed away on Sunday.

 

Phinit Sophajorn, 70, is now back home at her house in Ban Chiang, Nong Han district.

 

Her husband Thawin, 73, was the last one in the queue doing a face washing ritual before the coffin was nailed down at the temple. 

 

Then he noticed her breathing. 

 

The coffin and other items were burnt to assuage bad luck. 

 

The drama began after Phinit was allowed home from Soon Udon Thani hospital on Sunday. Relatives thought she had died later that day. 

 

Thawin explained that his wife had suffered from goiter problems since she was in her 50s. 

 

She was placed in a cooling coffin attached to a plug and kept like that for three days. Then the plug was disconnected and the body was taken to the temple.

 

She was transferred to Wat Amphawan for her final journey to the next life. 

 

Everyone had washed her face according to custom and her husband was the last in line. 

 

Then he noticed she was still alive. 

 

Thawin said that if his wife recovers enough to communicate and sit up it will be a blessing indeed. 

 

Thousands were sharing the story on Thai social media.

In western tradition, the Wake...sitting with the deceased for a period of hours or days...was to establish that the dead person was in fact dead. Even in modern times, people who have been determined to be dead...even brain dead..have spontaneously regained consciousness.  They did Wake from the dead.

Is this the normal procedure? No contacts to authorities to confirm the cause of death?

Aren't you supposed to get a death certificate from a hospital, before you can burn a body?

Or is it the family and neighbors that are qualified to determine death: Looks dead to me, let's burn it!

"Thailand is really a third world country"

 

 In USA in 2014 declared death by a coroner..."But before the embalming process could begin, the body bag started moving. Mr Williams was alive and literally kicking" .... 

In 2011, in in Kazan, Russia, as mourners filed past Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov’s open coffin, the hitherto ‘dead’ heart attack victim reportedly ‘woke up’ screaming at the realisation of where she was lying....

Some Thai politicians could be excused for looking like they are dead.

Softly spoken words like......"I have some money to give to you".......would quickly confirm if they are dead or alive.
