According to her son, Gilbert, the 76-year-old woman, Bella, reportedly came back to life after being declared dead by doctor at the local hospital. The death certificate noted the elderly woman’s death was caused by cardiorespiratory arrest due to suffering from an unspecified cerebrovascular disease. Her son is expected to file an incident report with the local prosecutor’s office and accuse the local hospital of negligence.
Gilbert reportedly said: ‘I am slowly coming to terms with what has happened. Now, I only ask for my mother’s health to improve. I want her to be alive and by my side. It was a miracle from God,” the Daily Mail reported. Bella fell ill at her home on Friday and was taken to the hospital. She was admitted at 9am and was pronounced dead at 12pm after she had suffered a stroke. The woman from Ecuad0r reportedly spent four hours inside the casket and was about to have a change of clothes at a funeral home where her viewing was going to be held when her family noticed that she showed signs of life around 8:50pm.
‘My mother started to move the left hand, open her eyes, the mouth,’ Gilbert told the Ecuad0r outlet. ‘She was making an effort to breathe.’ Her left hand was hitting the side of the coffin, and it was shaking,’ the son added. Footage showed Gilbert instructing a person to call 911 as he and another person placed their hands around her head and left arm. The son also explained his mother suffered from hypertension and heart problems, and reportedly had a stroke early Friday morning.

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, it is ‘a condition characterized by inactivity, decreased responsiveness to stimuli, and a tendency to maintain an immobile posture.’ Persons experiencing this condition, they seem non-responsive and do not respond to speech. Unfortunately, just 7 days after the incident, the 76-year-old died in intensive care. Ecuador’s health ministry said Bella died from an ischaemic stroke. She died from an ischaemic stroke on Friday at the hospital after spending a week in intensive care, the Daily Mail reported.
