Terrifying moment: Corpse 'waves' from inside coffin - Video

Haunting footage shows the moment a corpse appears to wave from inside a coffin.

The video shows friends and family members gathered around as a priest reads prayers while the person is being buried.

However, as the camera zooms in on the white coffin, which has a clear glass panel on it, there appears to be a hand and fingers moving underneath.

The disturbing footage was filed in Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia on May 5.

During the service, the priest is heard saying: "God has said in the book of John. I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me he will live even though he is dead," Daily Mail reports.

Just seconds after the speech is when the hand appears to be waving from the coffin.
The video sparked debate as to whether the movement was from the corpse.

Researchers at the Australian Facility for Taphonomic Experimental Research (AFTER) carried out the research, where they set up time-lapse cameras to study how dead bodies move.

The cameras filmed the bodies at 30-minute intervals, and revealed that the arms were ‘significantly moving.’

Speaking to ABC News, Alyson Wilson, a researcher involved in the project, said: “What we found was that the arms were significantly moving, so that arms that started off down beside the body ended up out to the side of the body.”

While you might think that the movements would be subtle, according to the researchers, this isn’t the case at all.

Dr Xanthe Mallet, who supervised the study, said: “I think people will be surprised at just how much movement there was because I was amazed when I saw it, especially how much the arms were moving. It was astounding.”

The researchers believe that the movement is caused by the build-up of gas in the body in the early to mid-stages of decomposition.

This means that watching a dead body’s movements could help to establish the time since death, according to the researchers.

Ms Wilson added: “This research is very important to help law enforcement to solve the crime and it also assists in disaster investigations.

"It's important for victims and victims' families, and in a lot of cases it gives the victim a voice to tell their last story."

Two ways Manchester United could line up with Donny Van de Beek transfer

Manchester United have emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny Van de Beek.

The Guardian report that United are hopeful of signing the Dutch star who has attracted interest from several other elite clubs.

Van de Beek, 23, starred in the Ajax team that reached the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018/19 season and is one of Europe’s most talented young midfielders.

We looked at two ways United could line-up next season if they complete the signing of the versatile Dutchman.

This system would allow Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to accommodate each of his most potent attacking threats.

While Van de Beek is most effective in a box-to-box role, he has experience shielding the back four and could provide the platform for Paul Pogba to roam in a double midfield pivot.

Van de Beek made six appearances in the defensive midfield role for Ajax in the 2019/20 season and has the ability to operate as Solskjaer’s anchorman ahead of Nemanja Matic.

However, Matic offers a more experi…

BBNaija 2020: I will find you a Bayelsa wife, someone like me – Nengi tells Ozo

Big Brother Naija housemate, Nengi, on Sunday said she will find Ozo a Bayelsa wife.

Nengi said this when Ozo said he wanted to take her on a trip after the reality show.

Ozo, however, said he was not interested in another Bayelsa wife.

“I will find you a wife when we leave this place. I will find you someone like me from Bayelsa,” Nengi told Ozo.

But Ozo responded, “if I wanted someone else, I would have chosen.”

Nengi further stated that, “When we leave the house there will be a lot of girls interested in you and you won’t have my time.”

Agreeing that it was a possibility, Ozo insisted he had found something special in her.

Nengi had warned Ozo against mistaking their friendship for a love relationship.

She had maintained that she would not date anyone in the house but Ozo is still trying and working hard to see if she could change her mind.

De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last …
