LUXOR, Egypt (AP) — The funeral of a 28 year-old waiter in southern Egypt
turned into a celebration when he woke up after being declared dead.
Hospital officials had pronounced dead Hamdi Hafez al-Nubi, who came from the
village of Naga al-Simman in the southern province of Luxor, after he suffered a
heart attack while working.
His family says grieving relatives took him home and, according to Islamic
tradition, washed his body and prepared him for burial Friday evening.
A doctor sent to sign the death certificate found it strange that his body was
warm. At closer observation she discovered he was still alive.
His mother fainted upon hearing the good news.
With the doctor's assistance, both al-Nubi and his mother were awakened and
soon were celebrating with guests.
