A woman died from a heart attack caused by shock after waking up to discover she had been declared dead - and was being taken for burial.
Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, 49, had been incorrectly declared dead by doctors but died for real when she heard mourners saying prayers for her soul to be taken up to heaven.
Devastated husband Fagili Mukhametzyanov, 51, had been told his wife had died of a heart attack after she had collapsed at home suffering from chest pains. But as mourning relatives filed past her open coffin, they were shocked when the supposedly dead woman suddenly woke up and started screaming when she realised where she was.
"Her eyes fluttered and we immediately rushed her back to the hospital, but she only lived for another 12 minutes in intensive care before she died again, this time for good," her husband - who now plans to sue the hospital in Kazan, Russia - said.
He added: "I'm very angry and want answers. She wasn’t dead when they said she was and they could have saved her."
Hospital spokesman Minsalih Sahapov said: "We are carrying out an investigation."
