'Electrocuted' man rises from the dead

December 8, 2000
Web posted at: 3:15 AM HKT (1915 GMT)

ALMATY, Kazakhstan (Reuters) -- A Kazakh man who was electrocuted and buried has shocked his friends and family by turning up for his own funeral feast.

The man was wrapped in a cloth shroud according to Muslim tradition and buried in a shallow grave after apparently dying while trying to steal power cables in eastern Kazakhstan, local media reported Wednesday.

But two days later he regained consciousness and rose naked from the ground, Express K daily said.

The paper said he had difficulty flagging down a vehicle to take him home.
