deadGWERU, ZIMBABWE – Here is the case of the Zimbabwe Zombie.’  Try saying that three times fast.

The story coming out of Zimbabwe is of a man shocking his family and friends by coming to life at his own funeral.

The 34-year-old man died at home after getting sick, and as is the custom, they put him in a coffin so people could take one last look at him before shipping him to the mortuary.

Everything was going the way these things go until someone noticed his legs start to move, and that’s when the going got weird.

He says he doesn’t remember how he died or how he came back to life. Doctors put him life support for a couple of days, just to make sure. And now he says he’s feeling OK.

Resurrections are not unusual in Zimbabwe. Last year, a woman supposedly possessed by demons came back to life after stabbing herself to death.

And in March, a working girl died while having sex at a hotel. She came back to life after cops put her in a metal casket, which brings a whole new meaning to the term ‘dead in bed.’
