Baby appears to come back to life in funeral video

A 3-year-old girl, who was clinically pronounced dead woke on Sunday during her funeral service in a church in the Philippines

The Philippine Star reports Police Senior Inspector Heidil Teelan, Aurora police chief, confirmed the incident, citing reports from the personnel he dispatched to verify the case at Barangay Bayabas.

Teelan declined to name the victim and her family for their protection.

A video footage uploaded to an online social network went viral online, showing the parents of the girl removing her from her wooden coffin while mourners appeared to be in the state of commotion.

Teelan said while they were not the proper authority to confirm the medical case, but based on the accounts of the child's parents, the 3-year old girl experienced severe fever for days and was brought to the clinic in the town for medical attention last Friday.
