On waking up, Peng Xiuhua asked why so many people were in her house in Lianjiang, Guangdong province, China.
The old woman who lived alone had taken a tumble and hurt herself so her two daughters, who are in their 70s, were looking after her.
However, 10 days later her daughters could not detect a heartbeat and her body had gone stiff so she was declared dead.
Xiuhua’s two daughters then started to plan the funeral. They got a coffin, found a burial site, bought food, and sent out invitations. But when the 101-year-old woman was placed into her coffin, her two daughters were shocked to see Xiuhau smiling up at them.
Xiuhua reportedly said: “Hello there.”
The woman’s two daughters immediately cancelled the funeral. But since they had all the food and drinks and since all of Xiuhua’s friends and family were on their way to the funeral home, they decided to have a party instead.
Xiuhua said: “I am a lucky woman…Not only did I get to see how many people care for me, but I also woke up before they took me to the crematorium,” she said
