Default Lazarus Movement

So I experienced my first Lazarus movements today. We had a brain dead pt that we were extubated, that began posturing and spasming, has anybody experienced this? Any thoughts? What can you say to family members that witness this?

I've experienced it once. It freaked me out (I was a new nurse) and thank God the family had just left the room.
