A “Dead” Man Wakes Up During His Autopsy

This is creepy. A man in Venezuela who was declared dead following a car accident was taken to the morgue, and an autopsy was begun. The only problem was the fact that the guy wasn’t really dead!

Carlos Camejo, who doctors thought had died from injuries sustained in a highway accident, woke up in excruciating pain as medical examiners were making an incision in his face as part of an autopsy procedure. Apparently, the examiners realized something was amiss even before Camejo woke up because their presumed corpse began to bleed profusely. Fortunately, they were shrewd enough to immediately stop the procedure and stitch up the incision on the man’s face.

Camejo is alive and well, albeit with a distinguishable scar on his face. I imagine that the Venezuelan hospital will be paying for cosmetic surgery for the man rather quickly.

It is amazing to me that something like this could still happen even with the medical knowledge of today, and yet, here it is.
