What's it like to wake up inside a morgue fridge? A South African man got the scare of his life after doing just that.
The unidentified man - who was mistaken for dead after being knocked out by an asthma attack - woke up Sunday afternoon, about 21 hours after his family had called an undertaker, according to a spokesman for the Eastern Cape department of health, Sizwe Kupelo.
The morgue's owner, Ayanda Maqolo, said he sent his driver to collect the "body" shortly after the family reported the apparent death. "When he got there, the driver examined the body, checked his pulse, looked for a heartbeat, but there was nothing," Maqolo said, adding that he thought the man was about 80.
