An Indian woman who was thought to be dead woke up again moments before she was about to be cremated.

Bujji Aamma, 52, from Berhampur, India, was severely burnt in a fire in her home on February 1.

She was taken to hospital with burns covering half her body and she returned home where she remained in a bad state.

A few days later she didn’t open her eyes because the family were unable to get her to another hospital due to poor finances.

Aamma’s husband, Sibaram Palo, believed she died and arranged for her to be taken to the cremation ground in a hearse.

He told Times of India: ‘We thought she was dead and informed others in the locality to arrange a hearse van to carry the body to the cremation ground.’

A woman called K Chiranjibi saw Aamma open her eyes and said: ‘Initially we were scared as we had never seen such an incident, though we had heard some stories.’

The driver of the hearse was called back to collect her, living and breathing, from the cremation ground only half an hour later and she was taken home in the same hearse.

Family do not need a death certificate to perform the last rites according to the crematorium.
