Mourners at a funeral procession were left horrified after a body fell out of a coffin when the bottom of the coffin gave way.

The ceremony, taking place in a rural village in Indonesia, was brought to a shocking halt when the body of the deceased appeared to drop through the green canvas coffin in which it was encased.

Wrapped fully in white cloth, the body falls onto the road as pallbearers carry the coffin past a street lined with grieving friends and relatives.

But rather than stop to recover the body, the coffin bearers continue walking, unaware of their awful mishap.

Onlookers rush to rescue the body from the middle of the road as the crowd shrieks in horror.

The body is quickly placed back in the coffin before the funeral processions continues.

Footage of the incident has been viewed more than 110,000 times on LiveLeak.
