Man Shows Up Alive, Halts Own Funeral

April 05, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

A 58-year-old Nicaraguan man arrived alive at his own funeral as his wife and family prepared to bury the wrong corpse.

Cesar Aguilera found his demise being mourned when he returned to his house in Tipitapa, just east of the capital, Managua, after checking on a rural property.

He had left without a word a week earlier, and his relatives, fearing the worst, went to the morgue and identified a cadaver they believed to be that of their loved one.
