Anyone here with Taphophobia

Luckily we now have modern medicine!!
Most people have a fear of being in a coffin when dead.

probably happen even more often with animals (that also can hibernate)

"One day a turtle walked in the front door. He hadn't been moving or eating in over a week. There was no way to get a heartbeat... He concluded he was dead, so the owner went ahead and buried him.

Two months later while his owner was doing the dishes, he had risen from the dead. Turns out Kev was just hibernating."

"The things they don't teach vets these days..."


vets are interested in mathematical biology and AI these days, but many dont know anymore that many animals can hibernate.. it is outside their model!

 buried alive in the model!

"Indian snake bite victim whose body was about to be burnt on a funeral pyre 'comes back from the dead' as fire is started."

"As they lit funeral pyre he started moaning and they realised he was alive"

Indian man, 95, comes back to life during his funeral rites
Budh Ram's son, Ranjit, said it was a joy for the family, as they would not have celebrated Diwali following a death, but now, "the celebrations are going to be grand".
