ALAGOINHAS, Brazil -- People at a funeral in northeastern Brazil started screaming and some fainted when the man they thought was dead showed up at his own wake.
41-year-old Gilberto Araujo found out through a friend that everyone thought he was dead, so he decided to show up and say “hello.”
The mix-up apparently happened when a family member mistakenly identified a body at the city morgue as Araujo.
Police said the body in the morgue was actually that of a man named Genivaldo Santos Gama.
No further information on Gama was immediately available.
