Monday, July 25th, 2011 | BBC

A 50-year-old South African man woke up inside a mortuary over the weekend and screamed to be let out – scaring away attendants who thought he was a ghost.

His family presumed he was dead when they could not wake him on Saturday night and contacted a private morgue in a rural village in the Eastern Cape.

He spent almost 24 hours inside the morgue, the region’s health department spokesman told the Sapa news agency.

The two attendants later returned and called for an ambulance.

The man – whose identity has been withheld – was treated in hospital for dehydration.

“Doctors put him under observation and concluded he was stable,” Eastern Cape health spokesperson Sizwe Kupelo said.

“He did not need further treatment.”

Mr Kupelo said the man woke up at 1700 local time (1500 GMT) on Sunday, demanding to be let out of the chilly morgue in Libode village, frightening the attendants on duty.

“At first the men ran for their lives,” said Mr Kupelo.

Officials have urged the public to contact doctors or the emergency services so they can they can pronounce someone dead before calling an undertaker.

“You begin to you ask yourself how many other people have died like that in a morgue,” said Mr Kupelo.

“We need to [get] the message across to all South Africans that it is very wrong for them to conclude on their own that a person has died,” he said.

Swallow this one , it's not too hard to go down:

A certain king ordered that all the lazy young men be buried alive. So here they have a guy taking him to the cemetery when an old lady inquired who it was.They replied that it was a lazy fellow named John and she implored them to release him as he would be useful in feeding her fowls with corn. The coffin was put down, the lid removed and the message relayed to John , who thereupon raised his head and requested of them to find out if the corn was shelled. The old woman replied in the negative whereupon John said: look pass on wid me yeh ! Believe it or Not...up to you !
