Abragh Mohamed held a funeral for his beloved wife in 2014 – without realising that he had been given the wrong body to bury
A woman who popped up on TV two years after her grieving husband believed he had buried her may have lost her memory, it has emerged.
Abragh Mohamed held a funeral for his beloved spouse in 2014 after she was thought to have died from ‘serious injuries’ in a car crash in Morocco.
But he was stunned when she recently appeared, alive, on a popular TV programme designed to reconnect loved ones who have lost contact.
Now, it has been theorised that the woman may have taken two years to contact her husband because she suffered severe head injuries in the crash.
These wounds could have caused her to suffer memory loss and subsequently forget her identity, it is said.
However, it is not clear what the woman has been doing since the incident, nor how she came to be wrongly deemed ‘dead’ in the first place.
Following the crash, Mohamed was told by doctors in a Casablanca hospital that his wife had passed away from her injuries.
He later held a funeral for her – without realising he had been given the wrong body to bury.
Two years after the woman’s ‘death’, family members sat down to watch the popular Moroccan television series ‘Al Mujtafun (Desaparecidos)’ or ‘Al Mujtafun (Disappeared)’.
It was then that Mohamed’s ‘deceased’ wife phoned in, saying she had lost contact with her husband and gave his name and former address.
The ‘widower”‘wasn’t watching the programme when she phoned in to trace him but friends were and they broke the shock news to him.
He told Spanish press: “I did not know it was a different body that we buried and my wife was still alive.”
Her husband was told by the doctors that she probably wouldn’t survive but they needed the bill to be paid in any event.
He therefore, travelled the four hours back to his home and when he returned with the cash, was told his wife had died.
Later, he received what he thought was her body, wrapped in a shroud and already in a coffin which he took back to Azilal for her burial.
