[QUOTE=OwnedByTheDog;35928099]This makes me wonder how many people that has accidentally been buried alive like this.[/QUOTE] Let's dig them up and ask.

what an awesome prank this could be to pull on your family
He's lucky they were doing it traditionally, morgues remove blood and replace it with preservatives... doubt he could wake up from that.
[QUOTE=joe588;35930455]what an awesome prank this could be to pull on your family[/QUOTE] Yeah, make your family think you're dead. Real funny.

If I were the guy being woken up during my own funeral, I wouldn't really be celebrating right away. I'd be changing my pants because they'd be filled with shit.
[QUOTE=evilweazel;35928834]A doctor sent to sign the death certificate found it strange that his body was warm. [B]At closer observation she discovered he was still alive.[/B] I think the article is saying that the doctor knew from that, that he wasn't dead.[/QUOTE] By closer inspection, did they mean actually checking the body besides a sideways glance?
No one thinks of hitman when reading this story? Atleast i did.
I just attended the funeral of my girlfriend's father, it would've been cool if they discovered he was still alive. But that would be kind of difficult considering he was cremated.

[QUOTE=Géza!;35928762]That's why lotta places have a tradition of waiting a couple days before burying someone. Y'know, if they start smelling, they're definitely dead[/QUOTE] I think it's according to Islamic tradition to have the body buried as soon as possible.
-meh snip; too personal-
[QUOTE=Hiccuper;35932346]I think it's according to Islamic tradition to have the body buried as soon as possible.[/QUOTE] Yep, that's why Bin Laden was thrown into the ocean ASAP.

Better story then twilight.
[QUOTE=supertribute;35937340]Better story then twilight.[/QUOTE] What does Twilight have to do with this Also, I've heard of a case that happened here in Portugal, 80 years ago or so, a guy woke up in the middle of his funeral. After that, he went to fight the Colonial War, he "died" in an accident and was presumed definitly dead. He came up with some gimmicks to return to Portugal, when he returned home, his entire family fainted. I don't know if this is true, but it's still an awesome story nonetheless. :v:
[QUOTE=adam1172;35936209]If you die in war yes. But in a normal death you have to clean the corpse and do things like that.[/QUOTE] Even though you must clean the corspe you still have to bury he or she as quickly as possible
I wonder if the family would still have to pay for the funeral when, y'know, the guy actually dies. [editline]19th May 2012[/editline] I mean, shouldn't he at least get a discount?
