Sao Paulo: Police say a 41-year-old car washer shocked his family when he interrupted a funeral being held for him at his mother`s home in the town of Alagoinhas in northeastern Brazil.

Police inspector Roberto Lima says that on Sunday Jose Marcos Araujo identified a body at the city morgue as being that of his brother, Gilberto.
Lima said today that Jose Marcos took the body to his mother`s home where a wake was held.

But the police inspector said that several hours before the Monday burial "a friend of Gilberto`s saw him walking down the street and told him that his family was mourning him."

"So he went to his mother`s home to let everyone know he was very much alive," Lima said by telephone.
