(Scroll down for video) A man was beaten and buried while he was unconscious.
Luckily for him, someone noticed the sand of the freshly covered grave moving.
The video, which was uploaded to the Internet, showed the victim being pulled alive from the grave.
The man was seen lying semi-conscious in the grave, and most of his body was still covered with sand.
Emergency workers were seen removing sand from his mouth, face and body.
The incident came to light after a woman heard noises coming from under the ground.
The woman was visiting a grave at a cemetery in the suburb of Ferraz de Vasconcelos, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, when she heard noises. As she walked closer to the grave, she saw something moving.
The horrified woman said that it was like a scene straight out of a horror movie, in which the buried man was moving his arms in an attempt to escape the grave.
According to reports, police did not believe the woman when she called and asked for help, instead, she convinced a cemetery worker to come and see for himself.
Paramedics finally managed to pull the man out of the grave and placed him on the grass nearby, where they treated him before he was transported to a hospital where he is recovering.
It is believed that the man had been thrown into the empty grave by the people who beat him up during a fight.
