Thread Name: Origins: Buried alive - is this story true?
Subject: RE: Origins: Buried alive - is this story true?
I have a friend whose (interestingly Scots!) father 'came back' several times - once even when he had stepped in front of a moving truck.

After the 2nd time, the hospital used to just leave him on the trolley (they had no brain monitors in those days, just a doctor) with a sheet and not take him to the morgue - they didn't want him to scare the morgue workers!

I'm not joking - he eventually died a couple of years ago - he had a massive stroke, with massive brain damage, from which there was no possible chance of a normal life if he did recover - he just slipped away at a ripe old age. It was Christmas day - interestingly enough - the hospital had stopped playing 'Xmas music' on the speakers early in the morning - and he passed soon after - his daughter in law - an geriatric ex-nurse - wondered whether he thought that Xmas day was over...

His son has done the same trick (no brain monitors, but a doctor present) once so far...
