S.African 'corpse' wakes up, scares off morgue staff



A 50-year-old South African man thought to be

dead woke up in a chilly morgue on Sunday and

shouted to be let out, scaring off two attendants

who thought he was a ghost, local media reported.

"His family thought he had died," health

spokesman Sizwe Kupelo told the Sapa news agency.

"The family called a private undertaker who took

what they thought was a dead body to the morgue,

but the man woke up inside the morgue on Sunday

at 5:00 pm and screamed, demanding to be taken out of the cold place."

This caused two mortuary attendants on duty to

flee the building in the small town of Libode in

the rural Eastern Cape as they thought it was a ghost.

After calling for help and returning to find the

man alive, an ambulance was sent to fetch the man

who had "been exposed to extreme cold for nearly 24 hours" said Kupelo.

He said the public should not assume that a sick

person had died and contact a mortuary, the report said.

"Doctors, emergency workers and the police are

the only people who have a right to examine the

patients and determine if they are dead or not."
