A sick woman died of shock on waking up at her own funeral, it was reported here.

Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, 49, woke up as relatives were praying at her open coffin, The Sun reported.

She screamed on realising that she was going to be buried.

The woman was promptly taken to a hospital in Kazan, Russia, where, however, she was declared dead from a suspected heart attack.

"Her eyes fluttered and we immediately rushed her back to the hospital," the woman's husband Fagili was quoted as saying.

"But she only lived another 12 minutes before she died again, this time for good."

Fagili is planning to take legal action against the hospital. "I am very angry and want some answers. She wasn't dead when they said she was and they could have saved her."

A hospital spokesperson said that they were carrying out an investigation.
