What should have been a solemn occasion to mark the Egyptian man’s passing rapidly turned into a celebration once everyone got over the shock of him still being alive.
The 28-year-old suffered a heart attack while at work and doctors at a local hospital concluded he had died.
His family took the body back to his home village of Naga al-Simman in the province of Luxor and intended to bury him on Friday evening.
They washed and prepared him for the funeral, but when a local doctor arrived to sign the death certificate, she found something strange – the body was still warm.
A more detailed examination revealed he was still very much alive.
Al-Nubi’s mother fainted after being told the news, but the doctor soon managed to wake both the mum and son, so that they could join in a party with the rest of the funeral guests.
