A 23 year old Indian manÂ simply identified as
Sandeep, who was presumed deadÂ after being bitten by a
snake rose up from the dead at his ownÂ funeral, just as
his body was about to be cremated.
Sandeep, was bitten by a snake while collecting wood from the forest far from his village. When heÂ got backÂ to his village in the Raisen district of the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh, he told his family that he had been bitten by a snake.
Rather than take him to a hospital for treatment, his family took him to a traditional tantric practitioner in a nearby village, hoping that traditional medicine would cure him but the traditional cure didnâ€™t seem to have healed Sandeep, so they assumed he had died.
The family took hisÂ body to a local cemetery, where a funeral pyre was prepared. They placed his body and lit the fire, but by the time the fire almost reached his body, the young man started screaming, that was whenÂ people realised that he was still alive.
After he regained consciousness, his family took him to that same tantric practitioner who had previously declared him dead, instead of taking him to the hospital.
Again.Â the tantric couldnâ€™t save him and declared Sandeep dead for the second time.
He was then taken to the district hospital where he was confirmed dead andÂ a post-mortem examinationÂ was done.
