The mysterious reawakening of a 17-year-old boy in Cameroon, whom medical professionals pronounced dead, has left many in disbelief and confusion.

The teenager identified as Poupog Kevin had been declared dead from drowning, but he was found sitting outside a mortuary at CEBEC hospital in Bonaberi, Douala over a week later.

The incident attracted a large crowd as they gathered to catch a glimpse of the body of the ‘boy who came back to life.’

Teenage boy found sitting outside mortuary eight days after being declared dead

Local media reports that the 17-year-old had gone to swim at Bellevue Hotel in Douala and he drowned in the pool on Sunday, Jan. 28. His body was then deposited in the mortuary.

Eight days after Kevin drowned, mortuary attendants found him sitting outside the mortuary on Monday, February 5. The deceased who had been naked when placed in the mortuary was seen wearing a white robe and underwear.

Head mortician, Louis Maries Mbella, told reporters that he was alerted by the security guard at the mortuary section the hospital that the young man brought in the previous week left the mortuary and was now sitting outside.

Mbella said: “It was around 3am (Monday) when the security guard knocked at my door to inform me that someone had taken a chair to sit outside. I approached the young man and asked him, ‘Why did you take this chair outside, and when they asked you refused to react?’ He said nothing.”

“I now put on my phone’s torch light and pointed at him, that is when I discovered that it was the young man who died last Sunday. I went inside to check if truly he was the one and I discovered that he was not where we had embalmed and left him. All those inside were naked but he was outside, eyes closed, but he was smiling”.

Eyewitnesses say Kevin murmured the words, “Anne you promised me.” But his mother, Catherine Kouete, refused to believe the story and she asked how her dead son could move or speak.

“How can a dead body move like that and sit on a chair? It doesn’t sound well to me. I think it is a setup. I don’t know… we have never seen this,” the grieving mother told reporters.

Officials at the hospital revealed that the body of the deceased teen has since been “sent back to the mortuary”.
