Back from the dead: Russian man wakes up in morgue after too much drinking, goes back to party

A man in Russia’s Far East woke up in the morgue after having been declared dead, local media report. Before the incident, he had been doing vodka rounds with friends – and after the “miraculous awakening,” he went back to the party.

The man who was mistakenly taken for dead passed out after drinking too much, local Khasanskiye Vesti newspaper reported Wednesday. However, it is not clear when exactly the incident took place. Khasanky Region is a coastal area in Russia’s Far East, which is home to some 35,000 people scattered over the territory of 4,100 square kilometers.

His friends called an ambulance and medical staff hastily declared the man dead before taking him to the morgue, according to the daily. However, the man eventually came back to his senses (somewhat) – only to find himself in a mortuary freezer.

  1. While I have no faith in our media or medical, I have less faith in theirs. Russia has never joined the 20th, let alone 21st, century. No matter how many revolts, they are still living, essentially, under tzarist rule. The more it has changed, the more it has stayed the same. The only real difference is that, whether more bureaucratic under communism, or emperor driven as now, it is no longer managed by bloodlines. The rest remains pretty much the same, though can be slightly better or worse.

    Their push to bring virtue to men has failed so completely they deny the many problems. They have destroyed any virtue their people had, completely broken the back of their independence, and produced... essentially, what our special snowflakes are becoming. Only, when the realization hits that no government can or will help, and it has stolen everything of value, alcohol (or whatever, to include antifreeze and else if that is all that is available), seems the way. In America it will most likely be the cheaper of drugs. Will be? I am thinking "is".
