    Uhm, dont they do like an autopsy when someone dies or is found dead. And I also thought embalming was standard practice as well.

    Glad he wasn't buried alive! still...

    I would have loved to see the old guys's WTF face when he woke up.
    Also his family's!

    This is pretty much my greatest fear. I'm not that afraid of dying, but I'm TERRIFIED of everyone thinking I'm dead and then waking up in a coffin. I guess waking up at the wake was fortuitous timing on his part, but man. Gah.

    In our culture we get cremated. So either I have to wake up in time or I'm toast. Literally.

    Yup. A minute late and the rest of our lives will be spent in a jar.

    wow, no one even thought to check for a pulse. Remind me not to fall unconscious or into a coma if I'm in Chile.

    Good timing for him, eh?

    Why they didn't bring him to a hospital is my question.
