JOHANNESBURG – A South African health official says a man awoke to find himself in a morgue fridge -- nearly a day after his family thought he had died. Health department spokesman Sizwe Kupelo said Monday that the man awoke Sunday afternoon, 21 hours after his family called in an undertaker who sent him to the morgue after an asthma attack. Kupelo says the man started yelling, prompting morgue workers to run away in fear. They eventually returned and removed him from the fridge. He was then taken to a nearby hospital and later discharged by doctors who deemed him stable. The mortuary owner says his family is very happy to have him home. Kupelo urged South Africans to call on health officials to confirm that their relatives are really dead.
Guy lives in South Africa, he was probably just trying to beat the heat for a few hours, no? Probably the best nap he got in years, no messing with mosquito nets, no humidity, just the ice cool comforts of the morgue, and knowing that hundreds of corpses have laid where you're resting.
All seriousness, this guy is not nearly angry enough at his family or the morgue...urging them to confirm relatives are dead? Come on bro, your family got rid of you the first chance they could once you passed out, couldn't have cared less. If I were you I wouldn't plan on any drinking binges anytime soon, your ass will wind up in the exact same spot.
