The mother of a 3-year-old girl in the Philippines who was thought to have awakened at her own funeral, now says she was told by a "quack" doctor that her child still had a pulse and should not be buried.

Wena Romerate told ABS-CBN News that her daughter had been sick for two weeks and died of pneumonia on July 10.

Someone at the child's funeral service said they saw her head move, which prompted family members to remove her from the coffin and take her to a hospital where doctors pronounced her dead, according to ABS-CBN News. Video of the baby being removed from her coffin went viral.

After the child was taken to the hospital, her family brought her body home.

On Monday, a local health officer showed Romerate a monitor that showed her daughter had no pulse, according to ABS-CBN News.

Doctors suggested the family bury the child because her body is beginning to decompose. The ABC-CBN report said the family is considering burying the baby within the week.
