Woman ‘comes back to life in hearse’ on way to her own cremation

February 13, 2024

Bujji Aamma, 52, from Berhampur, India, was severely burnt in a fire in her home on February 1. She was taken to hospital with burns covering half her body and she returned home where she remained in a bad state. A few days later she didn’t open her eyes because the family were unable to get her to another hospital due to poor finances. Aamma’s husband, Sibaram Palo, believed she died and arranged for her to be taken to the cremation ground in a hearse. For example, an 82-year-old woman was pronounced dead at a New York nursing home and was later discovered to be alive by funeral home staff.
