"Dead" man wakes up during autopsy...

Well, this is pretty much my worst nightmare come to life (pun intended).

"Dead" man wakes up under autopsy knife

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.

Reuters could not immediately reach hospital officials to confirm the events. But Camejo showed the newspaper his facial scar and a document ordering the autopsy.

========================================================

Can you IMAGINE??? The HORROR...

This is why we have the tradition of a wake before burial. Being declared dead while just really tired was not uncommon a hundred or so years ago.

As long as he didn't wake up craving brains, it's all good.

Who starts an autopsy by cutting the face?

Seems kinda odd.

Well if he woke up he was not dead, maybe he was just tired . "I'm not dead I feel happy. I feel happy"

But... but, it's on Reuters!

Yeah, I wondered the same thing. Figured Reuters checks their sources, and the guy did have a certificate of the autopsy?

Absolute BS.

The first cut is from the the front of each shoulder to the pubic bone.

I'm confused as to why they began the autopsy before his wife had identified him. Were they going to show him all cut up?

Now it makes sense!

They were removing the face for the wife to identify, and they could continue the autopsy uninterrupted!

To see if he died because of some cause (i.e. a heart attack) other than his injuries?

Not to defend the story, but when I was in a car accident, one of the first things they did was cut the glass out of the side of my face. There were bits of glass embedded in my skin. I was wondering about the face thing, too, but wonder if they were cleaning him up (removing glass, metal, debris) before they showed the body to his wife?

So, did you come back to life as they were cutting the glass out, or after?
