A Russian woman woke up at her own funeral after being wrongly declared dead – and minutes later suffered a fatal heart attack.

Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, 49, started screaming after she awoke to the sounds of mourners praying as they filed past her coffin, The Daily Mail reports.

Husband Fagili Mukhametzyanov said his wife was immediately rushed back to hospital.

“But she only lived for another 12 minutes in intensive care before she died again, this time for good,” he was quoted as saying in The Daily Mail.

Mr Mukhametzyanov said he was originally told his wife was dead after she suffered a heart attack and collapsed at home.

“She wasn’t dead when they said she was and they could have saved her,” he reportedly said.

“I am very angry and want answers.”

A hospital spokesperson said the matter was being investigated.
