Mourners were shocked when a 3-year-old girl woke up during her own funeral in the Philippines.

The girl was brought to a local clinic last week after experiencing a high fever for several days, police told the Philippine Star.

A day later, doctors declared her dead after no longer feeling a pulse.

Video of the funeral went viral after a mourner saw the unnamed girl's head move while arranging the coffin. Someone checked her pulse and found that she was, indeed, alive, the Daily Mirror reported.

The girl was given water, taken back to a clinic for observation and returned to her family.

Police told the Star they believe she remains "in a state of comatose" at the house.
