A 95-year-old Chinese woman, who was thought to have died, has shocked residents by climbing out of her own coffin.

Li Xiufeng was discovered motionless by a neighbour on February 17, a fortnight after suffering a head injury from a fall at her home in Guangxi Province, reports The Mirror.

Chen Qingwang assumed she had passed away in her sleep, saying: "She didn't get up, so I came up to wake her up.

"No matter how hard I pushed her and called her name, she had no reactions. I felt something was wrong, so I tried her breath, and she has gone, but her body is still not cold."

Xiufeng's son then made arrangements for her funeral, which included a coffin being placed in the home for friends and family to pay their respects.

The grandmother was placed inside the coffin on February 19, but it was not nailed down ahead of the funeral to be held on February 24.

However, the day before the funeral, Qingwang was shocked to discover the coffin was empty with no corpse inside.

"We were so terrified, and immediately asked the neighbours to come for help," he said.

Villagers in the town of Liulou later found her in her kitchen cooking herself a meal.

She reportedly explained: "I slept for a long time. After waking up, I felt so hungry, and wanted to cook something to eat.

"I pushed the lid for a long time to climb out."


A local hospital explained that Xiufeng had an artificial death, where a person has no breath but the body remains warm.

"Thanks to the local tradition of parking the coffin in the house for several days, she could be saved," a doctor said.

However, due to the local tradition, all of Xiufeng's belongings had been burnt, leaving with the 95-year-old with nothing at her home.

Speaking of zombies I have 2 books to prepare y'all for the coming of zombies.



Back to the topic whoa at least she didn't die of shock and it's a shame they burned her stuff.

I'm happy to hear she's alive. Good thing they didn't embalm her also.

Nah, she definitely came to terms with her death at this point. For her it must be more like peace. 95 years on this planet must have been hell, even more in China and what they went through this past century.

Whoa... That is quite amazing.

Makes me wonder if the Chinese tradition to keep the body parked in the house should be implemented everywhere.

Wait, I thought coffins had an air tight seal once it was closed? If it was the zombie apocalypse, you'd see me jacking some Hummers and raiding Twinkie trucks only to be disappointed with Snowballs
