GWERU, Zimbabwe, May 15 (UPI) -- A man in Zimbabwe said he is feeling "OK now" after mourners at his funeral noticed his legs twitching and had him rushed to a hospital.

Brighton Dama Zanthe, 34, was declared dead at his home after a long illness, but he was rushed to Gweru Provincial Hospital when mourners at his funeral Monday noticed his legs were still moving, The Daily Telegraph, Britain, reported Wednesday.
