Child who died in 1920 opens her eyes; video goes viral

Is this optical illusion or simply freaky?

Rosalia Lombardo – child mummy in Italy – appears to open and close her eyes. The video uploaded a year ago has now gone viral on YouTube.

The child born in Palermo, Italy, on December 13, 1918, died of pneumonia two years later in 1920.  Her father unable to bear the loss of his child had an embalmer preserve her body.

And now, years later, images on social media show the child opening and closing her eyes.
