‘I was terrified to see a man, who I thought was dead, trying to get out of the grave.’
‘He had his head and hands out and was moving his arms around, trying to get out.’
The woman first ran away screaming, but returned and called the emergency services, who found the man half buried in a plot of earth.
She also revealed that when she called the police, they thought she was joking at first.

The man is now recuperating in the local hospital in Ferraz de Vasconcelos. A hospital source said he is ‘coming back to life’. He will also be subjected to psychological tests.
