Man left in body bag for 5 hours after medics mistakenly declare him dead
"The pre-mortem man, Jose Ribeiro da Silva, 62, had been declared dead on November 29 with officials listing the official cause as complications from mouth cancer.
The hospital even handed his family a death certificate."
"Little did they know, their beloved relative was still very much alive.
From there, da Silva spent a grueling five hours in the body bag as he was ferried from the medical facility to a funeral home, which was located over 62 miles away in the municipality of Rialma.

many frozen in USA now, could easily get very low pulse and be declared incorrectly dead...

not even allowed to walk with knife anymore, at least one can then cut oneself out of the bag...but that would be too manly...could scare someone on the outside of the bag, their feelings must come first, we can not just have random people coming out of body bags...
