KINGSTOWN, St Vincent (CMC) — A pastor called on a 35-year-old woman, who had died suddenly late last month, to get up from her coffin and "come forth" sending mourners into shock, the state-owned
NBC radio has reported.

It said that Apostle Samuel Young was delivering the sermon during the funeral service for Luenda Browne-Williams at the Kingdom Life Tabernacle when he instructed the pallbearers to open the coffin, ordered the corpse to get up and come forth, and waited for the dead woman to do as he bid.

"This brought a halt to the proceedings as those attending the funeral service waited to see what would happen, the woman stayed dead," NBC reported.

It said that Browne-Williams had died suddenly on June 30.
