According to experts, concerns arose after Mexican officials spotted signs of life on one of the accidental mummies featured in a traveling exhibit.

The collection, known as the Mummies of Guanajuato, is composed of mummies from the 1800s that were inadvertently preserved after being buried in mineral-rich soil in crypts in Guanajuato, Mexico.

The cause of the mummification remains a mystery, with some attributing it to the local climate and others to the crypts themselves, as reported by Yahoo News.

The mummies were first discovered in 1865 when cemetery workers were removing the remains of those whose relatives were unable to pay for graveyard fees.

This unique collection has drawn considerable attention and curiosity from people around the world.
