It was reported in this article today the following:
Carlos Camejo, a Venezuelan man who had been declared dead but woke up in the morgue in excruciating pain after medical examiners began their autopsy, poses for the camera in La Victoria September 17, 2007. 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. (Reuters)
Apparently when his wife came to id his body, she found him alive in the hallway of the coronors office.
uuummm....first of all, who performs an autopsy on someone's face? 2nd, who performs an autopsy before a wife had id'd the body, and starts with the face? 3rd, how could they not know the dude was still alive?
Would you not just die if this happened to you...pardon the pun.
To all the doctors, nurses, emergency medical staff and coronors of the world.....if you think I am dead...go the extra mile and make sure I am dead, especially if you have to cut me up or oh say...put my body in the ground...or furnace....ouch!
