Just when I THOUGHT I had heard them all from a funeral home :)
My Gpa was a Funeral director & my step mom grew up in one,so I have heard some pretty strange stuff already :)
He was the kind of guy I think if the guy were wanting for anything
he would have adopted him.
I have came out of a coma several times & REAL amnesia & woke up in more E.R.'S than sound believable here, I can say that would be a LIFE changing experience for him. Rick

If they'd run a proper battery of tests on him, this would not have happened.

there used to be such a fear of being buried alive back in the day, that some coffins came with buzzers (in the off chance you would wake up)

I wonder how many people have been embalmed when they were still alive? Is that possible? I think maybe because if they can say someone is dead when they're not......

Well, a person could possibly still be alive at the start of the process, but not for long. The body fluids (blood) are drained out as the formaldehyde is pumped in. A more likely scenario (and it's been recorded as happening) is life discovered in an autopsy.

I must have said it wrong. What I was meaning to say was how many were alive before the embalming..........we would never know because they would be dead soon after the embalming took place.

Life discovered in an autopsy?????

For some odd reason topics won't let me post links to several examples of people awakening during autopsy. A search on the subject will produce true horror story's about it. You're very welcome.
