Wake Up! You're Being Autopsied!

Ouch, this really does sound horrible. It's one of those recurrent nightmares, that you'll be alive but everyone thinks you're dead:

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 realize something was amiss when he started bleeding. They quickly sought to stitch up the incision on his face.

"I woke up because the pain was unbearable," Camejo said, according to a report on Friday in leading local newspaper El Universal.

At least he did start bleediing and they stopped: Imagine if they'd fired up the saw to take off the top of his skull first? Or done the great big Y incision?
