In scenes reminiscent of a classic zombie horror movie, a man has emerged from the grave with hands and arms waving.
First video is a shortened version, showing the man in the grave when assistance arrived.
Second video shows the removal of the man from the grave and initial treatment.
A woman visiting a family tomb in Brazil had the shock of her life when part of a human body emerged alive from a grave, waving its arms around.
The woman was at a cemetery in the suburb of Ferraz de Vasconcelos, Sao Paulo, when she heard faint noises then noticed the earth moving in a grave close by.
'I was terrified to see a man, who I thought was dead, trying to get out of the grave,' said the petrified woman.
He had his head and hands out and was moving his arms around, trying to get out.' The woman immediately called the emergency services, who found the man was still half buried in a plot of earth, and had managed to get part of his upper torso and head out of the dirt.
Ambulance workers removed the dirt covering the man’s body and lifted him out.
It is believed the dramatic rescue, which came to light today, happened about a week ago. In images shown on Brazil's Record TV, he appears almost lifeless but is found to be breathing by an emergency worker.
The man, who police said was a former city hall worker, was taken to the local hospital in Ferraz de Vasconcelos.
The director of the cemetery confirmed that the unnamed man had been buried alive, but would not confirm if it was a mistake (burying an alleged homeless person), or if it was the result of criminal activity.
