‘Dead’ man wakes under autopsy knife – 01 Mar 2008 – NZ Herald: World / International News

CARACAS – 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 realise 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 in leading local newspaper El Universal.

Awwwwww, I bet it was excruciating.
