Why did the people mourning for over the death of a young girl begin loudly laughing at Jesus?


Jesus said the girl was just sleeping

Matthew 9 :

(23) When Jesus entered the synagogue leader’s house and saw the noisy crowd and people playing pipes, (24) he said, “Go away. The girl is not dead but asleep.” But they laughed at him. (25) After the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took the girl by the hand, and she got up. (26) News of this spread through all that region.
