While hoards of the living dead are not endlessly looking to eat our brains (yet), that doesn't mean there aren't some horrifying cases of people showcasing zombie-like behavior. From rising out of coffins at their funerals to tearing off raw human flesh with their teeth to even companies experimenting with reanimating the dead, these chilling real life 'zombie' stories rival even the most terrifying episodes of 'The Walking Dead.'
Only a zombie could eat their own family, right? In a tragic and heartbreaking tale, a young mother was accused of cannibalism after a nurse found her mouth clamped around her newborn's arm. Instantly the nurse struggled to get 24-year-old Li Zhenghua to let go of her son, but the new mother refused. Quickly she was sedated and the baby was removed, although he did suffer bruising and bleeding from the attack. It is unknown what caused her to engage in such gruesome behavior, yet apparently Li was kicked out by her mother-in-law and was roaming the streets of Southern China for weeks leading up to her giving birth.
