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 realise something was amiss when he started bleeding. They quickly started to stitch up the incision on his face.
"I woke up because the pain was unbearable," Camejo said, according to a report 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.
