I wish I was making this up, but I’m not: Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, 49, died at her own funeral today in Kazan, Russia. â€œBut Dale, that doesn’t make much sense!â€ I know, I know, it really doesn’t make much sense and I’m still trying to piece it together myself, but here’s what happened:
Yesterday, Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov was happily bumbling about her house when she experienced a heart attack and collapsed. Doctors announced that she was dead and Fagilyu’s husband, Fagili, planned for the funeral to happen today.
However, in a twist that only Edgar Allen Poe could have pulled off, Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov woke up during her own funeral. Somehow the doctors had wrongly announced her dead â€“ must have been the C-minus med student â€“ and Fagilyu regained consciousness while people were praying for her soul to be taken to heaven. The utter shock and disbelief of the whole scene overwhelmed her so much that she had another heart attack. This time she actually died.
Fagili Mukhametzyanov said: â€œHer eyes fluttered and we immediately rushed her back to the hospital but she only lived for another 12 minutes in intensive care before she died again, this time for good.â€
â€œI am very angry and want answers. She wasnâ€™t dead when they said she was and they could have saved her.â€
