'Dead' man wakes during the autopsy

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 and started to cut only to realize something was amiss when he started bleeding and the man woke up, They quickly sought to stitch up the incision they had made 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.

A terrible thing to happen to someone but I suppose Its a good job an autopsy had been ordered it would have been even worse to wake up in a wooden box 6 feet under.
