Lifeless Drowned Body Wakes Up – When a Corpse is not a Corpse!

By , September 12, 2012 12:26 am

A man’s lifeless body was found floating in a river in the United States.

A forensic team was called in to investigate the drowning, and the Lycoming County Coroner, Charles E. Kiessling Jr. attended in person at the morbid scene.

Authorities spent some time deciding on the best way to retrieve the body, when the unthinkable happened – The “dead” body sat up!!

Check out the video below!!

As was later learned, Joseph DeAngelo was not actually dead or even close to drowning – he had simply fallen asleep while watching the clouds… And he had absolutely no idea of the furore going on around him. The strange thing is that none of the professional forensic team went and checked on him upon their arrival – he was snoozing very close to the shore line.

According to Kiessling Jr., “Let me tell you, it was quite a shock for us… He was bobbing up and down in the water and he really looked like he was dead”

Williamsport Police Captain Michael Orwig, exclaimed “It’s a miracle!”

DeAngelo himself said that he had no idea what was going around him until a dragonfly landed on his nose… he simply woke from his slumber and sat up. He apologised for any confusion he might have created, and said he was “living life the best way I know how”.

Dead Boy Wakes, Asks for Water and Dies Again – Family Shocked!

By , June 7, 2012 10:24 pm

It’s sometimes difficult to believe everything that you read online. But in the case of Kelvin Santos, the 2-year old Brazilian boy who is reported to have physically sat up in his coffin and asked for water, his parents and family are not only convinced of what occurred, they are absolutely certain that he was a victim of medical malpractice.


The bizarre incident was reported on the Brazilian news website, Portal ORM, which claimed that young Kelvin originally stopped breathing at a hospital in Belem (northern Brazil). He was undergoing treatment for pneumonia at the time.

He was declared dead at 7.40pm on Friday and his body was handed over to his family in a plastic bag.

Kelvin’s distraught family took him home where a wake was held and his body was laid in an open coffin for viewing by relatives.

This is when things took a turn for the weird – about an hour before the funeral was due to take place on Saturday, young Kelvin apparently sat up in his coffin and said, “Daddy, can I have some water?”.

His father, Antonio Santos, said “Then Kelvin just laid back down, the way he was. We couldn’t wake him. He was dead again.”

Of the incident itself, Mr Santos had said “Everybody started to scream, we couldn’t believe our eyes. Then we thought a miracle had taken place and our boy had come back to life.”

He rushed his son back to the Aberlardo Santos hospital in Belem and the doctors reexamined the boy. They confirmed that Kelvin was in fact deceased.

“They assured me that he really was dead and gave me no explanation for what we had just seen and heard.”

The funeral was delayed for another hour in the hope that Kelvin might wake up again – it didn’t happen and the family buried him at 5pm on Saturday in a local cemetery.

Mr Santos is convinced that his son was a victim of medical malpractice and has registered a complaint with the police. An investigation has been launched.


According to the hospital, Kelvin had originally been admitted in a critical condition and was declared dead after suffering cardiac-respiratory failure.

In response, the boy’s father said, “Fifteen minutes after rushing him away for resuscitation, they came and told me he was dead and handed me his body. Perhaps they didn’t examine him properly. Dead people don’t just wake up and talk. I’m determined to find out the truth.”

Child-Birth Is Always A Miracle… But These Record Breaking Babies Are Amazing

By , July 11, 2011 12:29 am

Any time a baby is born, it’s an absolute miracle – However, a couple of very cute but amazing records have been set recently.


In the first childbirth miracle, the proud parents of twin girls will have no problem telling them apart – although the babies were born just 10-minutes apart, the difference in size and weight is remarkable. Bigger sister Daisy who weighed 8lbs 1oz (3.66kg) at birth already towers over her smaller sibling, Poppy, at 5lb 7oz (2.43kg).

Secondly, the largest baby ever born in the state of Texas (recorded) has weighed in at a whopping 16lbs 1oz (7.29kg – more than a full stone!!).



As is the case with most expectant mothers-to-be of twins, Pamela Sutherland was worried that people might not be able to tell the babies apart… as soon as they were born, both she and her husband Barry knew that this was certainly not going to cause any problems.

Daisy and Poppy were born at Elgin Maternity Hospital five weeks ago. Their size difference is the largest ever recorded in the UK.


The 30-year old new Mum said, “We just couldn’t believe it when they were born and they looked so different… Even the midwife was shocked when she weighed Daisy. She did a double take”.


When JaMichael Brown popped into this world weighing over a full stone, it made him the biggest baby ever to have been born in Longview hospital, and now officials believe that he may also be the largest ever recorded in the state of Texas.


Michael Brown, the boys father, said that his new-born son is already known around the hospital as “The Moose”… “The doctor told us he was going be about 12lbs, but when he pulled him out it was a different story”.

His mother, Janet Johnson, was healthy but exhausted (go figure!) – although she obviously knew that JaMichael was going to be a big baby, she never imagined that he would be four pounds heavier than the doctors had predicted.


JaMichael was 24″ long, with head circumference of 15″ and chest a huge 17″ (measurements akin to a child who is already around 6-months old). The little giant was born with a full head of hair and the hospital didn’t have stocks of nappies large enough to fit him.

Ms Johnson said, “I can’t believe he’s that big. A lot of the baby clothes we bought for him will have to be returned. They’re already too small for him to wear”.



Man Lives After Being Shot In The Head – And Didn’t Even Know!

By , May 2, 2011 11:36 pm

bullet01Wang Tian Qing, a farmer from Zhangjiakouin city in northern China’s Hebei province has been suffering from epilepsy for more than twenty years.

Back in 1988, Wang was knocked unconscious on his way home by what he thought was a blow to the head… “I thought I’d been hit by a slingshot… I saw a man standing on a hill and thought he’d hit me”.

After waking up in hospital, Wang was given a course of anti-inflammatories and sent home. Not long after, he started having epileptic seizures – which grew worse over the next twenty-three years.


Recently, Wang visited the hospital for treatment for his epileptic seizures, and doctors were amazed to discover (through a CAT scan) a two-centimetre rusted bullet embedded in his head.

According to Neurosurgeon, Wang Zhi Ming, the survival rate for being shot in the head would usually be one in several thousand – but in Wang Tian Qing’s case, the bullet missed his brain’s main veins and did not injure his brainstem.

The Miracle Of Life!

By , October 1, 2010 10:55 pm

Today, I must take a blog diversion into my personal life. You see, on Tuesday the 28th September, 2010 at 6:31pm in the evening, an absolute miracle occurred.

Casey Zheng Jiakai Breitkreutz was born on 28th September, 2010 at 6:31pm

Casey Zheng Jiakai Breitkreutz was born on 28th September, 2010 at 6:31pm

It all started around 11:30am while I was in my office at Millenia Tower attending a very important business meeting. While I was right in the middle of negotiations on an important deal, my cell phone began vibrating in my pocket. I was so engrossed in what I was doing, that it didn’t immediately dawn on me that the caller could very possibly be my pregnant wife, Sammi, trying to alert me to the fact that our new baby boy was ready to be born.

After some seconds, I stopped mid-sentence and explained to the other meeting attendees that this could be an urgent call that I need to take – I reached for the phone just as it stopped ringing… my suspicions were confirmed when I noticed the missed call was in fact from Sammi. Of course, I immediately called back – after finally being able to hear what she had to say (above all the background noise of some extremely excited parents-in-law and a maid), I politely excused myself from the meeting and ran to collect my coat and personal items before heading down to the carpark to make the trip home and assess the situation for myself.

Upon arrival at my apartment, Sammi was actually quite relaxed eating her lunch – the warning signs of the impending birth did not include any intense labour pains. At around 1:30pm, we collected the pre-packed suitcase and necessary paperwork for the hospital and drove into the Mt Elizabeth Medical Centre to consult with our Gynocologist.

After a quick check in the clinic, we were advised that labour was well underway and in fact the cervix was already dilated to around 3cm (regardless of the fact that painful contractions had still not begun).

Next stop – straight to the delivery suite at Mt Elizabeth Hospital. By this time, we were getting near to 3:00pm in the afternoon – this is when the ‘real labour’ started. The rest of the process was very rapid. By 6:31pm (just over a few hours later), a baby boy by the name of Casey Zheng Jiakai Breitkreutz emerged looking very healthy and just a little unhappy that we had disturbed him from the comfortable resting place in which he’s spent the last nine months.

For anyone that has witnessed the miracle that is childbirth, you will completely understand why the moment reduced me to a complete blubbering mess. How can any father hold back the tears of absolute joy when they witness such a remarkable event as this?

Casey weighed in at a very healthy 3.550kg and measured 50 cm in length.

We spent Tuesday and Wednesday nights at Mt Elizabeth Hospital (I was allowed my own bed in our single room, as a ‘lodger’ and also got to enjoy the hospital food – which included a lovely romantic ‘celebratory’ dinner for two on the second evening).

We are all back at home now and have adjusted very well to having another ‘new born’ baby in the apartment. Although we are all a bit sleep-deprived, every waking moment is amazing – I could stand there for hours just looking at our baby sleep. I am still astounded at how powerful and moving this time of life can be!!

I was going to take the opportunity to apologise to all of my readers for such a long absence from blogging, but I cannot bring myself to do so… I am not sorry at all that I have experienced one of the most memorable and joyous moments that any person can participate in.

As an aside, my prayers go out to my dear Dad and Mum… last year my Dad (my inspiration) passed away – the 28th of September was his birthday. Over the last 12-months, life has been pretty tough on my Mum being all alone (although she is incredibly tough and resilient). The fact that Casey was born on the anniversary of Dad’s birthday literally brought Mum to tears – I called her in Australia as soon as Casey was born, and she was so moved and emotionally charged that she could hardly even talk. The birth of this, her 14th Grandchild, on such a very special day, is a wonderful gift for her.

Below is a very quick collection of photographs taken on my iPhone on Tuesday… Enjoy!! Life truly is awesome!!
