Initial information from sources or from an eyewitness
Incident date: 
возле храма Ухоу

In 1995, Chinese archaeological teams discovered three ancient bodies near the Wuhou Temple in Chengdu.

Due to the lack of strict security at the site, when the archaeological team returned to the archaeological site the next day, the three ancient bodies disappeared.

They thought the bodies had been stolen by tomb robbers, but a few days later, five mummies were found elsewhere in Chengdu. These five mummies include three previously found.

Then something terrible happened.

Five corpses turned from the dead into zombies and bit into the living with sharp teeth. Some people died immediately after the bite, others slowly lost themselves and became like walking corpses.

There are rumors that China used the army and flamethrowers to suppress everything before the zombies formed a wave.

Additional information:The story consists of several versions, mainly the source of Patient Zero, and here we choose the one that is most widely distributed.

According to an ongoing study of Chinese netizens, the truth of this story may lie in a tragedy caused by rabies: a farmer in rural Chengdu was infected with rabies. He gradually went mad, and then bit his own pig, he and the pig soon died. Later, due to lack of medical knowledge, the farmer's family turned the meat of a dead pig into food. A few days later, the whole family became infected with rabies and bit the inhabitants of the village of the same name.

Many homemade things made for the sake of a joke, a practical joke or a direct imitation of a mystical being or event can be taken as unexplained not only in photos and videos, but also in reality.
