Man interrupts 'own wake' in Bahia


www2.dgabc.com.br...

I had to use Google Chrome translation as this page is from Brasil. But a very interesting story nevertheless. Great ending to this story



The shock was great when the car washer Gilberto Araújo Santos, 41, came walking by "own wake," which was held at the home of his parents in Alagoinhas (BA), 108 km north of Salvador, on the morning of Monday (22). He still had phoned earlier to the family, warning that he was alive, but the family thought it was hazing, such is the similarity with his body that was about to be buried.

The trouble started on Saturday night (20), with the murder shot a homeless man in the city center. Advised of the occurrence, a brother and sister went to Santos Medical-Legal Institute on Sunday (21) and recognized the body as that of car washer, who had no contact with the family for four months.

The family prepared the funeral, which began Sunday night and continued until the morning of Monday. Santos was notified of the case by a friend who knew he was pronounced dead. Called home, but was "offended". Without option, decided to return to show that there had died. According to the family, there was screaming, celebrations, fright and fainting. Soon, the street was crowded with onlookers.

The delegate Glauco SuzArt admits the resemblance between the dead and the car washer "is amazing." "Furthermore, the two were homeless, worked washing cars and had friends in common, which contributed to the mistake," he explains. According to him, the city has another family identified the body. Police are investigating the homicide. After the scare, Santos decided to move back in with his parents and won a party at lunch on Tuesday.

I'm glad no-one beat him to death thinking he was a zombie.

Ha! A great outcome for him and his family after all. I hope he can mend whatever fences were put up that caused him to leave in the first place.
