Boy woke up from coffin, ask for water then back to dead.

Quote:
‘Dead' boy wakes up and asks for water at funeral in Brazil
From:

A TWO-YEAR-OLD boy sat up in his coffin and asked for water before laying back down again lifeless, according to a Brazilian news website.

Website ORM claimed that Kelvin Santos stopped breathing during treatment for pneumonia at a hospital in Belem, northern Brazil.

He was declared dead at 7.40pm on Friday and his body was handed over to his family in a plastic bag.

The child's devastated family took him home where grieving relatives held a wake throughout the night, with the boy's body laid in an open coffin.

But an hour before his funeral was due to take place on Saturday the boy apparently sat up in his coffin and said: "Daddy, can I have some water?".

The boy's father, Antonio Santos, said: "Everybody started to scream, we couldn't believe our eyes. Then we thought a miracle had taken place and our boy had come back to life.

"Then Kelvin just laid back down, the way he was. We couldn't wake him. He was dead again."

> more to read...
I'm sure it's hoax. However, I thought that one of comment is funny...

Quote:
"Doctor, quick! It turns out my son isn't dead! He just sat up and asked for water."
"Well did you give him water?"
"No"
"Well that's good, a dead person wouldn't know what to do with a glass of water, amirite? Just go bury him."
"But doesn't the fact that he asked for water mean he's not dead?"
"No that's common. It's called, umm, post-hypo-hydro-desirucus. After death the human body sometimes has lingering nerve transmissions that cause it to ... uh ... sit up and ask for water."
"Really?"
"Just bury him dude, alright?"
"But I think he's still alive!"
doctor pulls out a stethoscope, slides it along the wall, licks the tip of his finger and holds it into the air to check the wind
"No sir, I'm afraid he's dead."
"What about the noise he's making right now? It sounds like snoring."
"That's just gas leaving the body, please go bury your child."
Child gets up and walks off the examination table
"Daddy I want to go home"
"Will someone please shut this dead kid up and bury him already!?"

I don't know. The child was handed over to the family in a plastic bag. How long could one survive in there?

That was a lot more common before the modern era, and they used to put a bell with a pull inside coffins, to give people who weren't really dead a chance to be saved if they woke up buried.

Yup, that is where the term. "Saved by the bell" came from. I feel the boy may have sat up. Nerves and muscles do funny things once a person passes. I know a turtles heart can beat for days after death.

Under the condition when being bury, there is lack of air in the underground. Would die in matter of minutes.

You all should read Edgar Allen Poe's 'The Premature Burial.' It discusses several real-life incidences where people were buried alive. Did you know that Poe suffered from a condition that would occasionally leave him completely comatose for a while, and he would appear dead? He was so afraid that he would be mistaken for dead that he insisted on being buried somewhere that had easy access to get out if he ever needed to.

I felt for the family. What a horrible thing to witness as a parent. The hospital should be held liable....tragic more than creepy. God bless that little boy and his family.

It has definitely happened! Poe tells about several cases just like this in his short story. Back in the older days, they didn't have the technology to determine that a person was absolutely deceased, so it wasn't extremely uncommon for a living person to be declared dead.

Quote:
Interesting Fact: Many believe the terms “Saved by the bell” and “Dead ringer” has to do with safety coffins with the notion that a recently buried person could pull a rope attached to a bell outside the coffin to alert people that he or she is not deceased. Both of these have been proven false. Saved by the bell is a boxing term dating from the 1930s. Ringer is from horse racing and is a horse substituted for another of similar appearance in order to defraud the bookies. Dead was then added to the term later like ‘dead on’, ‘dead center’ etc.

Signals from the Grave

Patents for coffins foiling premature burials.

There was an entire market for caskets and contraptions that would provide extra ways of preventing an individual from suffering a premature burial. Signal bells were installed next to some graves. Attached to a piece of string that would be tied around the deceased’s finger, this string could be pulled to ring the bell and signal a person nearby in the event that the departed was not quite so departed after all. Others had air pipes built into their coffin roofs to allow fresh air to get into the victim, prolonging their life. Still others created vaults that had escape hatches so that the revived person could escape.
Quote:
If it was scary enough to frighten our first president, who was a fearless war general, you can bet the prospect of being buried alive is pretty terrifying. Poe was aware of the widespread fear of being buried alive (known as taphophobia) and utilized it in a few of his stories such as The Premature Burial, Berenice, and The Fall of the House of Usher. The characters buried alive in these stories suffered from catalepsy, an actual nervous condition that causes muscle rigidity, a decreased reaction to pain, and unconsciousness. All were signs that doctors associated with death.
