“Cremated man is still alive”
A Chinese family is in complete shock after discovering their grandfather, who was cremated nine years ago, is still alive.
Zhuo Kangluo was confirmed dead following a car accident in 2014.
Both family and friends identified a body at the scene of the crash as being him.
Following the accident, Zhuo’s nephew decided to have the body cremated without an autopsy.
But the surprise appearance of a man acting ‘strangely’ in a village nine years later led to a DNA test on the man.
The test proved he was Zhuo.
His grandson was able to identify him when taken to the village.
Authorities in China are now working to identify the man who was mistakenly thought to be Zhuo in 2014.
