Grandma returns from the dead, fixes lunch, scares family


No one expects to walk into the kitchen and discover their recently-deceased grandmother calmly cooking a meal. That Stephen King-worthy scenario happened to one Chinese family, after 95-year old Li Xiufeng climbed out of her unsealed coffin, six days after she’d been found “dead” in her bedroom. According to The Mirror, after Xiufeng suffered what was thought to be a fatal head injury, plans were made for her funeral, including holding an in-home wake for friends and family. Her coffin had not yet been permanently closed, giving Xiufeng the opportunity to escape after waking from what a doctor described as an “artificial” death and what her family probably called “the reason we all just soiled ourselves.”
