Footage of a three-year-old girl miraculously waking up at her own funeral in the Philippines has been validated by local authorities. 

According to the Philippine Star, the girl suffered from "severe fever" for a few days before her parents took her to a clinic in Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur. Police inspector Heidi Teelan told the Star that the girl was pronounced dead around 9 a.m. Saturday morning. 

During her funeral yesterday, someone claimed to have seen her head move. When a pulse was detected, her parents proceeded to give her water and took her back to the clinic for additional medical attention. Authorities weren't able to confirm her status, but reamin under the strong belief that she's still in a "comatose" state at the family home.
