September 15, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

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 and he woke up.

His grieving wife turned up at the morgue to identify her husband's body only to find him moved into a corridor -- alive.
