MEXICO CITY -- A newborn girl declared dead by doctors in Mexico surprised mourners when she came back to life inside her coffin.

Hidalgo state Attorney General Jose Rodriguez says the parents heard a strange noise coming from the casket during the baby's wake.

Obviously, they don't embalm in Mexico.
Well, at least not until they're old enough to DIY via Tequila.

I read somewhere that the “Wake” originated in Ireland because sometimes people would awake during their funeral.

The Wake give them a proper time period to do just that.

Embalming is an American thing...is it not? They don’t do it in parts of Europe that I’ve visited

Well, that's Ireland, where it's hard to tell the difference between “dead drunk” and “dead”.

The doctor is now being investigated for possible negligence, Rodriguez said.

For better or worse, this man has a huge weight on his shoulders he's going to bear for a long time. It's between him and God how long that is and if it destroys him.

Then Mickey Maloney ducked his head When a noggin of whiskey flew at him, It missed, and falling on the bed The liquor scattered over Tim! The corpse revives! See how he raises! Timothy rising from the bed, Says,"Whirl your whiskey around like blazes Thanum an Dhul! Do you thunk I'm dead?"

Cho Whack fol the darn O, dance to your partner Whirl the floor, your trotters shake; Wasn't it the truth I told you Lots of fun at Finnegan's wake!
