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.

Zanthe said told Zimbabwean newspaper The Chronicle he does not remember his apparent death or the ensuing funeral. He said the first thing he can remember after being at his home is waking up at the hospital.

"Everything is history to me. What I can only confirm is that people gathered at my house to mourn but I was given another chance and I am alive. I feel OK now," Zanthe said.
