labman: Bring out yer dead!
reported: Must have been some third-world backwater with no competent medical professionals to accurately diagnose death.... RTFAOr Mississippi, same difference.
vpb: I wonder how many times someone woke up while they were being embalmed?Maybe the embalming technician would just keep quiet to avoid any messy legal entanglements.
cgraves67: In another article I read, the coroner declared it a miracle, which coincidentally deflects from anyone noticing his utter incompetence as a coroner.
haolegirl: And from then on he could only become sexually aroused when his partner was wearing latex gloves!/obscure?
rev. dave: Still not changing my mind about cremation.Why people still want to make mummies out of themselves is crazy.The whole idea behind preserving the body was to make it so that people could re-enter their bodies when judgement day comes. But then you would be a zombie and no one bothered to think about that.
JohnnyApocalypse: but if you're an old guy and kick it, they'll just fill in the blanks from prior medical records.
Fano: haolegirl: And from then on he could only become sexually aroused when his partner was wearing latex gloves!/obscure?Bitten by a snake, eh?
A Terrible Human: haolegirl: And from then on he could only become sexually aroused when his partner was wearing latex gloves!/obscure?Stephen King obscure? No.
neongoats: This is why I want to be buried at sea.Well, aside from the fact that I think it would be hilarious to force my friends and family to take a nice boat trip, punctuated by throwing my corpse over the side like one of Dexter's victims.
hardinparamedic: This wasn't a miracle. This wasn't an accident.This was an idiot who simply relied on checking a pulse on a pacemaker dependant man without doing an EKG, checking for heart tones, or palpating for a pulse for a minute.More than likely, the guy had a loose or damaged pacer lead, and was profoundly bradycardic (slow heart rate), and jostling the man around replanted the lead and allowed the pacemaker to pace his heart back to a rate which perfused his brain.This was total incompetence.
busy chillin': When he woke up, did he say "CariBOOOOO!?"They asked him his future plans, he replied "I am going to go over to Maxwell's House."I think I have run this into the grounds.
JohnnyApocalypse: hate to burst most people's bubbles (not really), but many times, when the death doesn't appear unusual, there is only a cursory check of the decedent to determine cause of death. if there needs to be a determination of fault, they'll perform an autopsy (usually related to blood alcohol or detecting drugs in the system), or if the cause is totally inexplicable, etc.but if you're an old guy and kick it, they'll just fill in the blanks from prior medical records.
Literally Addicted: I do, however, love the comments following TFA, particularly where someone is shocked, SHOCKED that an autopsy isn't performed on an old dead guy. Do people really believe that every death comes with an automatic autopsy?
