It's called the lazarus sign and is quite common in traumatic brain injury patients once the criteria for brain death is met. Not bragging, but I know this because I am a neurosurgeon at Virginia Tech

I've seen a similar reaction in decapitation videos, when the head is nearly cut and they hit the bone that connects the spine to the skull with a machete the same movement happens to the victim's arms.

Stop hitting yourself. Why are you hitting yourself?
