Brazilian Boy Comes Back Alive At Own Funeral Then Dies Again

Brazilian Boy Funeral

A two-year-old boy in Brazil SITS UP in his own coffin and asks for water before he lies back down totally lifeless. Can you believe it??

Little Kelvin Santos was declared dead from pneumonia on June 1 but an hour before his funeral was to take place the next day, the boy allegedly sat up and said, “Daddy, can I have some water?”

“Everybody started to scream, we couldn’t believe our eyes. Then we thought a miracle had taken place and our boy had come back to life. Then Kelvin just lay back down, the way he was. We couldn’t wake him. He was dead again,” said the boy’s father Antonio Santos  in a Daily Mail report.

His father rushed his son back to the hospital where doctors examined the body and confirmed the bad news.

“They assured me that he really was dead and gave me no explanation for what we had just seen and heard,” said Antonio.

The funeral was then delayed for another hour — everyone was hoping that Kelvin would wake up again. However, Kelvin had no signs of life and was buried the same day.

Antonio has made on official complaint with the police, saying that his son was a victim of medical malpractice.

An investigation has been launched.

Oh i found this in the comments section of the same article on a different website.

KELVIN SANTOS MYSTERY SOLVED: Cerebral Hypoxia, as the result of bronchial pneumonia. This is why Kelvin appeared dead, he was in a deep oxygen-deprived coma, a state of respiratory arrest which allowed him to survived in that cold airtight body bag. “Children have survived for long periods under icy water and have been revived from the state of respiratory arrest,” is what a British Ambulance spokeswoman told Sky News after the rescue of a British boy, thought to be dead, from an icy pond. “It could be because their metabolism slows down much faster than ours…”

I have maintained this story was a TALE because no one comes back from final death–BUT KELVIN SANTOS WAS NOT IN FINAL DEATH.

When Kelvin Santos sat up in his coffin and asked for water, he was experiencing the FINAL burst in brain wave activity. This SPIKE in brain energy reanimated his comatose body one last time. Dr. Lakhmir Chawla of the George Washington University Medical Center told the Discovery Channel, “All the neurons are connected together and when they lose oxygen, their ability to maintain electrical potential goes away. I think when people lose all their blood flow, their neurons all fire in very close proximity and you get a big domino effect. We think this could explain the spike.”

This may be a case of mistaken death. If Kelvin had been maintained on oxygen therapy and hydration for a LITTLE LONGER, he may still be with us.

If the boy has been “”DEAD”” for few days, definitely he doesn’t had any food intake at all for the past days. When he sits down and asked water , they should have not given him so and should have just rushed him to the hospital. His organs were not functioning for the past few days and drinking water right away may cause death. Just think of those women who have gone thru Cesarean Operations. They’re not allowed to drink or eat until they farted.

I think they should have waited a little longer. It’s horrible if the kid wakes up again and finds himself in the dark six feet under. That ordeal would be unimaginable.

I agree…I thought the same thing. I would have waited and definitely NOT gone back to the same hospital.

I’m sure the little boy never died in the first place…went into a coma like state and woke up dehydrated which ultimately killed him.

He can sue all he wants, but honestly he just wants an explanation as to why his son was taken from him twice, but it really can’t be explained :-/

My first thought was how horrible it would be for the family to have to go through that twice. But then, don’t do they do autopsy’s there?

Not all bodies are embalmed. It is an option. Since he was buried the next day, its likely that he was just placed in a freezer. Bodies can last for longer than 24 hours in a freezer and maintain preservation long enough to be buried a couple days after death. Blood is drained for the embalming process. So if he was simply placed in a freezer to await burial, its possible he was still alive. Or this is a miracle not involving science.

if you pay attention you don’t read of him going to the funeral home, not ALL countries do embalming, even in the united stated you can get away with burial and no embalming depending on the religion, and how quick you burry them. And RARE cases of the Lazarus Syndrome like that have happened. I watch my father die in the hospital….he flatlined and died…before the doctors came in his heart pumped a few more times, he rose up with a slight strain, then layed back down and was gone…..and THIS I seen for myself!

Autopsies are not needed when a person dies in the hospital. Especially when the cause of death is known (the pneumonia). Plus it is up to families if they want one done. They only time one is mandatory is when a person dies at home. The exception for a death at home is a known/documented terminal illness. Also keep in mind that he was not in the US. Different countries/religion have different policies/procedures regarding the disposal of a body. The body will only be drained if embalming is going to be done. Again different country different procedures. Decay of the body can be delayed by refridgeration, but for only approx. two days. This story is so stinkin sad. That family is going to be traumatized for life!! :(
