"Dead" Man Wakes Up During Autopsy

"Dead" Man Wakes Up Under Autopsy Knife

Caracus, Venezuela - 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.

Scarred for life takes a whole new meaning here.

What I don't understand about this (other than the obvious 'how could they NOT know he wasn't dead?'), is why they cut his face...Doesn't an autopsy usually start with the Y incision?

Maybe they were checking to see if he had any brains attached behind those eyes.

Reminds me of... I think The Twilight Zone, where the guy is declared dead but before he undergoes his autopsy he learns to tap his finger. Unfortuanatly they lay him on his finger and he's almost sliced and diced before they see him crying. Vague recollection but it was the first thing I thought of when I read this. Like Rayne said, how did they not know he was alive? I don't know, maybe checking for a pulse before sending him to the chopping table would be a good idea.

EDIT: It was a Hitchcock show, not a Twilight Zone.

I would be willing to bet it isnt. A lot of people in positions like this make assumptions, like the guy who declared him dead actually knew what the fuck they were doing...

I am thinking that they dont have a gtreat system of checks and balances when handling dead bodies vs live ones in that country.
