TEGUCIGALP­A: A “dead” teenager woke up in her coffin and screamed for help one day after she was buried in Honduras – but she died before desperate relatives could save her.

Footage has emerged showing grieving family members breaking through the concrete tomb from where Neysi Perez (inset), 16, had been heard “banging and screaming”.

Relatives who removed the girl’s corpse found that the glass viewing win- dow on her coffin had been smashed and the tips of her fingers were bruised.

Despite efforts to revive her, medics found no signs of life and she was later returned to the cemetery and reburied in the same mausoleum.

Her husband raised the alarm after hearing her screams while visiting her grave.

Doctors believe that Ms Perez may have initially suffered from a severe panic attack.
