    Man Declared Dead Awakens During Autopsy

    There's something I don't care to experience....

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,297289,00.html

    "CARACAS (Reuters) - A Venezuelan man who had been declared dead woke up in the morgue in excruciating pain after medical examiners began their autopsy.

    Carlos Camejo, 33, was declared dead after a highway accident and taken to the morgue, where examiners began an autopsy only to realize something was amiss when he started bleeding. They quickly sought to stitch up the incision on his face.

    "I woke up because the pain was unbearable," Camejo said, according to a report on Friday in leading local newspaper El Universal.

    His grieving wife turned up at the morgue to identify her husband's body only to find him moved into a corridor -- and alive."

    Your heart no longer pumps, so if you laying on your back for hours in a morgue, and they cut open your face, nope.

    That's what I'm thinking. Did they not check for a pulse or other vital signs?
