Woman Allegedly Comes Back to Life During Her Own Funeral

Dozens of people taking part in a funeral in Peru were left shocked after the woman being laid to rest allegedly started banging on the casket from the inside.

Late last month, Rosa Isabel Cespedes Callaca, a 36-year-old woman from Lambayeque, Peru, her brother-in-law, and three of her nephews were involved in a serious car accident that claimed the lives of both adults and left the boys with serious injuries. On April 26, Rosa’s relatives gathered in Lambayeque to lay her body to rest. The solemn procession was going according to plan, according to eyewitnesses, but at one point people started hearing faint banging from inside the woman’s coffin. When the lid was opened, the funeral attendees were shocked to see Rosa staring back at them…

“She opened her eyes and was sweating,” cemetery caretaker Juan Segundo Cajo said. “I immediately went to my office and called the police.”

Still in total disbelief, the woman’s family picked up the coffin and rushed it to the Referential Hospital Ferrenafe in Lambayeque, with Rosa still inside. Doctors there confirmed the woman’s vital signs, even though she had been pronounced dead days earlier, and put her on life support.


Unfortunately, Rosa died just hours after being brought to the hospital, for real this time. However, no one could ignore the fact that she had come back to life just moments before being lowered into her eternal resting place, and her family is now asking for answers.

“We want to know why my niece reacted yesterday when we were taking her to be buried,” Rosa’s aunt said. “We have the videos in which she pushes and touches the coffin.”


Police has already opened an investigation into this matter after the bizarre case went viral, but it has yet to report any findings. The woman’s family believes she fell into a coma after the car crash, but that begs the question: how did the doctors originally miss her vital signs?

Some people even went as far as to suggest that the hospital deliberately declared Rosa dead the first time because they didn’t have enough resources to keep a woman in a coma on life support for what could have been a long period of time. They are asking for a thorough investigation to bring the truth to light.
