Honduras: A pregnant Honduran teenager was reportedly found to have been buried alive after family members heard her screaming from the coffin a day after the funeral.

Family members of Neyesi Perez, who was three months pregnant at the time of her death, broke open the tomb and found the viewing glass in the coffin smashed and her fingertips bruised, according to a report in The Independent.

The shocking discovery was made by her husband who heard noises coming from inside the coffin when he visited her grave a day after the funeral.

She was rushed to the hospital but no signs of life were found by medics.

Perez was later re-buried in the same cemetery.

The girl was initially declared dead after she reportedly suffered an apparent panic attack outside her La Entrada home.

She started foaming at the mouth and was taken to hospital where she was declared dead by the doctors.
