Man Attends Own Wake

A Brazilian man shocked his family when he showed up at his own wake. The family had mistakenly identified a murder victim as their relative.

Family and friends in Alagoinhas, in the Bahia state, were gathered around what they thought was the body of Gilberto Araujo, when he walked in and said “I’m alive, pinch me.”

Araujo says he was told about his ‘death’ by a friend on the street. His mother says it was a “fright” to see him. She says some people fainted, while others fled the wake in terror.

Meanwhile, the body of the murder victim has been returned to authorities.
