Eerie video shows moment corpse ‘waves’ during burial service

Bone-chilling footage from a funeral shows a corpse in Indonesia appear to wave from the casket to mourners, sparking fears the person were mistakenly buried alive, according to a report.

The eerie moment was caught on camera May 5 as the family gathered to say a final farewell to their loved one in the city of Manado, The Sun reported.

Footage shows what appears to be a hand moving under the coffin’s glass panel as a priest read prayers during the service.

“God has said in the book of John. I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me he will live even though he is dead,” the priest said.

It was then that what was believed to be the deceased person’s hand appears to wave, or touch the lid of the coffin, the outlet reported.

No one noticed the purported incident at the time, but others pointed it out when the clip was shared on social media, according to the report.

“Yes, he waved, maybe he was still alive and try to dig his way out,” one person reportedly wrote.

Experts debunked the theory that the corpse was still kicking, saying simple rigor mortis was to blame,  according to the report.

The condition, in which the body stiffens during later stages of decomposition, can cause the corpse to move, researchers from Central Queensland University in Australia said, the outlet reported.
