The True And Terrible Tales Of People Being Buried Alive Will Make You Paranoid
When you go to the hospital, you shouldn’t have to worry about being accidentally pronounced dead and buried alive. (The key word there is shouldn’t.)
The fear of being buried alive wasn’t irrational at one point in history. Before the invention of mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and other life-saving medical procedures, it didn’t take much to pronounce someone as dead. As a result, there were cases of people being put in the grave prematurely. (In fact, in Victorian times, there were precautions taken to prevent it from happening.) In 1905, there were reported to be 368 live to near-live burials in England. That’s more than one live burial per day of the year.
Although it’s a lot more rare now, it shockingly still happens.
