This woman's family thought she died in a car accident, but she was still alive and began banging on her coffin AT HER FUNERAL before ultimately succumbing to her injuries

May 3rd

So apparently in Peru they're not very good at the whole pronouncing people dead thing.

That's absolutely loco!

Yes, Rosa Isabel Cespedes Callaca of Lambayeque, Peru was pronounced dead last week after being involved in a "catastrophic crash" which also took the life of her brother-in-law and injured three of her nephews.

The only problem?

Rosa was not dead.

And at her funeral, as her family members began the service with her coffin raised above their heads, she began to knock from the inside of the coffin.

The family members set her down, opened the coffin, and realized that she was still alive.

Her relatives heard the banging after they had lifted the coffin onto their shoulders and immediately lowered it.

They opened the lid to find Rosa alive and peering at them.

Cemetery caretaker Juan Segundo Cajo said: "She opened her eyes and was sweating.

"I immediately went to my office and called the police."

Her family picked up the coffin and rushed it to the Referential Hospital Ferrenafe in Lambayeque - with Rosa still inside.

Rosa was placed on life support, but unfortunately passed away a few hours later.

Her family is understandably furious, and they're asking medical professionals to explain just why Rosa was pronounced dead in the first place.

She likely would've survived had she been treated for her injuries immediately following the car crash!

But now her family will never know. And they've had to mourn the loss of Rosa for a second time.

Very sad.
