A 41 year old car washer from Brazil was pronounced “dead” as his family and friends mourned him at “his” wake he walks in. The body laying there was another man (also a car washer) who resembles him a lot! But, what kind of communication do you have with your family and friends for them to not you aren’t dead???


“I said, ‘guys, I’m alive, pinch me,'” Araujo told the O Globo news website. He had not seen his family for about four months until then.
His mother, shopkeeper Maria Menezes, said some of those attending the wake fainted while others fled.
“It was a fright … I’m very happy because what mother has a son that they say is dead then turns up alive?” she said.
