"Man shows up alive at his own funeral"

Odd News:

"Man shows up alive at his own funeral"

A Brazilian bricklayer reportedly killed in a car crash shocked his mourning family by showing up alive at his funeral.
Relatives of Ademir Jorge Goncalves, 59, had identified him as the victim of a Sunday night car crash in Parana state in southern Brazil, police said.

What family members didn't know was that Goncalves had spent the night at a truck stop talking with friends over drinks of a sugarcane liquor known as cachaca.

As is customary in Brazil, the funeral was held the following day, which happened to be the holiday of Finados, when Brazilians visit cemeteries to honour the dead.
"People are afraid to look for very long when they identify bodies, and I think that is what happened in this case."said the police spokesman, who talked on condition of anonymity.

Goncalves rushed to the funeral to let family members know he was not dead.
