“A 91-year-old woman, presumed dead for 24 hours, suddenly sat up in bed, terrifying friends and monks who were offering prayers for her safe journey to eternal rest,” began a South China Morning Post report dated February 20, 1964. “Mrs Li Kit […] who ‘woke from the dead’ in a Fanling nunnery a week ago is responding to medical treatment,” the Post reported on February 23. “Mrs Li Kit was presumed dead on February 15. Her friends in the nunnery had already prepared her funeral when she suddenly sat up 24 hours later.” She was quoted in the Post as saying, “I dreamed hazily that I was led by some Hades guards, one with the head of an ox and the other with the head of a horse. But later on, they drove me back and then I woke up.” When 100kg of deadly poison was spilled on a Hong Kong road The report went on to explain that Li had “apparently died, and she had been dressed in traditional funeral costume. The Buddhist burial ritual began, and, although her left arm and leg twitched once, continued. Hours later, a nun went into the room and found Li Kit sitting up […] “Her death certificate was cancelled and grave diggers were dismissed.” On February 26, the Post reported that “many well-wishers have brought gifts of money, clothing and food to Mrs Li Kit […] During the past days, friends and strangers who learned of her experience and needs from newspaper reports have given about $350 in cash and other amenities […] Mrs Li was able to sit up in her bed for a short while and recite her Buddhist prayers in the presence of her visitors.” When Hong Kong could achieve an 80 per cent vaccination rate in 10 days Li died, again, on March 2. The Post reported the next day that “the woman’s godson, Mr Ho Kam-hung, a businessman, has engaged two old women to watch over Mrs Li in case she returns to life again”. She did not.
