Anyone here with Taphophobia

"Before the advent of modern medicine, the fear was not entirely irrational. "

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"

some older texts starts to make much sense...

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".

Survivorship bias gets a new meaning.

"It was found that she had suffered from ‘extreme cold’ in the morgue, chief doctor "   sounds almost as cold as ice bathing.

how many almost dead drunken have died because they have been incorrectly declared dead? This story is likely just the tip of the bottle!

 Drink home alone, always lock the door!!!

 "Greek scholars later wrote that in the days after his death, Alexander's body didn't decompose, proving the warrior king was a god. But Dr Hall says this may have been because he was in fact still alive."

An Ethiopian man who woke up in his coffin during his burial two months ago has died.
Hirpha Negero was pronounced dead in November and was placed inside a coffin, where he lay for five hours, but during the funeral villagers heard knocking from inside the coffin.
Mr Hirpha told the BBC at the time what he experienced:
Quote Message: I heard someone crying. I was suffocating and trying to tear away the shroud. I was so weak, unable to speak out."
I heard someone crying. I was suffocating and trying to tear away the shroud. I was so weak, unable to speak out."
Then he said he managed to start calling, "Is there anybody around?"
The village undertaker Etana Kena said that people were shocked and ran away and he had had to open the coffin alone.
After the initial shock, the burial ceremony then turned into a celebration.
The undertaker, who is also Mr Hirpha’s uncle, said: “I have buried more than 50 or 60 bodies. I have never anything seen like this before. He seemed to be dead.”
Mr Hirpha said he had had visions when he was unconscious of “a beautiful green place” where a man dressed in white told him to "go back".
Dr Birra Leggese told the BBC that Mr Hirpha had probably been in a “deep coma”.
The same undertaker buried Mr Negero for the second time on Thursday, one day after he died.
He said that this time he was certain his nephew was dead because he had witnessed his long sickness.

it can be quite shocking to be buried alive, so it can kill you actually. How many times can one take such a shock that friends, family and doctors declare one dead while still alive. Some people are actually conscious about the outside world when in such hibernation type state, but can not signal out. 

I just heard about such story in my home town, they where bringing a dead person to the church by horse (quite some years back), then from the coffin the person waked up when the horse wagon went over a big bump. Back to the farm. And people want smooth roads ?
