Family Members Flee When Dead Man Comes to Own Funeral
BRASILIA, Brazil — A 41-year-old car washer from northeastern Brazil shocked his family by turning up at his own wake after his family mistakenly identified a murdered local man at the morgue as him, local media reported Tuesday.
Family and friends in the town of Alagoinhas in Bahia state were gathered around the body of another car washer resembling Gilberto Araujo when he showed up after being told of his “death” by a friend who had spotted him in the street.
“I said, ‘Guys, I’m alive, pinch me,’” Araujo told the O Globo news website (story is in Portuguese). He had not seen his family for about four months until then.
‘It was a fright’
“It was a fright. … I’m very happy because what mother has a son that they say is dead then turns up alive?” she said
