Was this a miracle? Or just an oversight?

A 3-year-old girl pronounced dead suddenly woke up in church on Sunday—in a casket during her funeral in Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur in the Philippines.

According to, Police Senior Inspector Heidil Teelan, Aurora police chief, said the child's parents said the girl had a "severe fever" for days before her she landed in a medical clinic last Friday.

"During that time, the attending clinic personnel and physician confirmed that the young patient had no more pulse and was clinically dead last Saturday morning about 9 a.m.," Teelan said.

The news outlet reports that one of the funeral-goers took the cover off the coffin and saw the little girl's head move. The video below shows the mother picking up her child.

Was this a miraculous rebirth or medical malpractice? In any case, God intervened and saved the girl's life.
