In 1983, a woman who went by the name of Mrs. Boger died tragically owing to an unknown disease. She was then buried, as was to be done to dead people. But then, a friend of Mrs. Boger's told her husband, Charles, that his wife had suffered from hysteria before he had met her, and it was possible that she hadn't actually been dead. So Mr. Boger dug up his wife and found Mrs. Boger's body turned over. It was already too late, and she had really died this time.

In 1915, a 30-year-old South Carolinian named Essie Dunbar suffered a fatal attack of epilepsy - or so everyone thought. After declaring her dead, doctors placed Dunbar's body in a coffin and scheduled her funeral for the next day so that her sister, who lived out of town, would still be able to pay her respects. But Dunbar's sister didn't travel fast enough; she arrived only to see the last clods of dirt thrown atop the grave. This didn't sit well with Dunbar's sister, who wanted to see Essie one last time. She ordered that the body be removed. When the coffin lid was opened, Essie sat up and smiled at all around her. She lived for another 47 years. No one gave Essie's sister guff about running late ever again.
During the late 1800's, the city of Pikeville, KY was under the attack of a terrible, unknown disease. And of all the cases, Octavia's seems most tragic. After her infant son had passed away in January 1891, Octavia had spiraled into a bedridden depression, and ultimately dead. She was buried, and all ceremonies were performed. But then, after the rest of ten townsfolk tarted to fall into comas and WAKE UP, Ocatavia's hubby freaked out and dug her up only to discover that he was too late. Octavia was reburied and her husband erected a lifelike monument over her grave site. The monument still stands today.
In 2010, owing to some stupid internet craze, a man buried himself for 24 hours, thinking it would bring him good luck. With some help from a friend, he dug a grave outside the city of Blagoveshchensk, inserted a makeshift coffin complete with air piping, a single bottle of water, and a cell phone. Once the man got inside the casket, his friend covered him with nearly a foot of dirt and left. The man called his friend just once to say he was fine, but when the friend returned to relieve him in the morning, he was dead. It seems that an overnight rain might have blocked the air pipes and left the man to suffocate in his own casket.
