A 3-Year-Old-Girl Wakes Up at Her Funeral Service, then Dies a Second Time Hours Later

A 3-year-old girl woke up during her funeral service, then died again after several attempts to restore her life failed. Reports suggest that doctors mistakenly declared her dead.

According to a statement by her family, as published by El Universal Newspaper, 3-year-old Camila Roxana Martinez Mendoza was experiencing fever, vomiting, and stomach discomfort.

She was taken by her mother to a pediatrician at Villa de Ramos, Mexico. The doctor directed the child to be taken to Salinas de Hidalgo Basic Community Hospital.

The doctors at Salinas de Hidalgo Basic Community Hospital used cold towels over her body to lower her body temperature with a pulse oximeter on one of her fingers to keep track of her oxygen levels.

She was later discharged with just a few drugs like over-the-counter painkillers such as paracetamol.

Camila's sickness, however, became worse after taking the medicines. She was again taken to another doctor who instructed her mother to feed her fruits and water with a few other prescriptions.

The doctor also recommended that the child be taken to the hospital in the central Mexican state of San Luis Potosí to be treated for dehydration. It was these prescriptions that escalated the child's health condition.

After meeting a certain medical doctor, the kid was directed to be taken to an emergency room.

In her mother's statement, “They wanted to give her (intravenous therapy). They took a long time to put oxygen on her. They didn’t put it on her because they couldn’t find her little veins; finally, a nurse-managed it.” A few minutes later, little Camila died of dehydration.

A funeral service was held the next day to mourn the kid when Mendoza, her mother, noticed something bizarre in the glass window of the coffin. While others taught it was a hallucination, her grandmother rushed up to the coffin only to realize the toddler's eyes were open and she was alive with some pulse.

Camila was rushed by ambulance back to the Salinas hospital, where doctors struggled to revive her. The attempt to bring her back to life failed. She was again declared dead from brain swelling, a condition known medically as cerebral edema.

Her family blames her death on the hospital's negligence which resulted in a slow response to her health need and wrongful declaration of her demise.

Her autopsy has been taken and her death is under investigation by the San Luis Potosí State Attorney General, Jose Luis Ruiz.
