A man has been dragged out alive from his fathers grave after jumping inside the tomb to say goodbye to the man.
A son who missed his father’s funeral climbed into his tomb to say goodbye and had to be rescued by police.
The mentally unstable man went into the grave in Acre, north Brazil.
His family reported him to the police.
Video footage shows the man being pulled through a narrow hole above his head.
Two police officers slowly haul him free by his arms.
The man, who has not yet been identified, can barely stand when he is freed and has to be supported by the policemen.
He wails after being released from the tomb and appears distressed.
