Syrian man attends his own funeral, shocking grieving family members
A Syrian man's family and relatives were still mourning his loss, entering the last day of his wake when the man turned up alive and returned home. According to The Daily Mail, such a case is not uncommon in that country. His family was delighted to see him alive, after he survived a government airstrike in the market. He was reportedly under the rubble for 36 hours before making it out.
MUNTINLUPA, PHILIPPINES (Catholic Online) - On a Sunday, a government airstrike killed over a hundred people near Damascus, according to the Daily Mail. Mohammed Rayhan was presumed dead by his family and relatives after he failed to return home from the market, located at the center of the bombed town of Douma. His family began grieving and started the three days of mourning upon his loss.
However, he was still alive under the rubble without anyone's knowledge. After 36 hours of being trapped he showed up on the last day of his own funeral, the Tuesday morning. His beard and hair were still covered in as he joined his delighted family. They rejoiced amid the shock, considering that just 36 hours ago Rayhan was presumed dead, which they were mourning over just minutes earlier.
"Lots of people go missing, get lost in rubble, and only turn up later," noted Syrian Observatory of Human Rights director, Rami Abdurrahman, in an interview with The Independent. "It often happens with children - I have heard of three-year-old children who have been mourned by their families and then found alive in rubble."
After about 10 airstrikes, around 200 people were injured and a massive, horrifying devastation left the people of Douma. Screaming children were everywhere, while many of them lay lifeless as medics treated the wounded.
