A Russian woman died of a heart attack at her own funeral, after waking up to find praying mourners filing past her coffin.

According to the Daily Mail, Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, 49, had been declared dead after suffering chest pains and collapsing at home in Kazan, capital of Tatarstan.

Doctors had failed to spot she was actually very much alive, and Mrs Mukhametzyanov unsuprisingly began screaming when she regained consciousness to find she was being prematurely dispatched to the hereafter.

Her husband, 51-year-old Fagili Mukhametzyanov, said: "Her 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."

He added: "I am very angry and want answers. She wasn’t dead when they said she was and they could have saved her."

Hospital spokesman Minsalih Sahapov assured an investigation into the matter was under way. ®
