Thread Name: Origins: Buried alive - is this story true?
Subject: RE: Origins: Buried alive - is this story true?
Thanks, 'meself'. Interesting how often these stories involve a sexton (easy to see why), a woman rather than a man buried and the birth of children following the narrow escape (in other words, they're all young and female - why would that be? Anyone know?). The Ann Carter Lee page you give a link to, 'meself', asks the same general questions I want to have answers to, but alas comes to the same conclusion: "So, what are we to make of the resurrection of Ann Carter Lee? Was it simply a Lee family legend? Or was it a case of a misdiagnosis of death resulting from the imperfect state of medical knowledge at the time? Or was it the result of some phenomenon beyond ordinary human comprehension? Perhaps we will never know."

Thank you all for your contributions. This has been a fascinating journey so far. Any more nuggets, anyone? Especially from medical practitioners?
