An elderly woman was declared dead – only to wake up hours later inside a coffin in a funeral home.

The 88-year-old died two days after the incident and police want to know if misdiagnosis contributed to her death.

Maria das Dores da Conceicao woke inside the coffin four hours after doctors thought she died on Wednesday and she was rushed back to the hospital near the city of Belo Horizonte. She suffered from hypertension.
