When you think about the worst ways to die, being buried alive probably doesn’t cross your mind, but not long ago this was one of society’s biggest fears. There were even emergency coffins constructed that had telephones. Fortunately, medical science has advanced so we are better able to tell when somebody is really dead. However, no matter how far we advance, we can’t stop people from killing each other, so whether it was genocide, murder, or just a mistake, these are some Chilling Stories Of Being Buried Alive.

Crushed by Fear

A man in the Russian city of Vologda convinced his friend to bury him in order to overcome his fear of death. The next day, however, they found him dead. He was crushed under the Earth with which he had been buried.

Neysi Perez

In 2015, Neysi was buried in Honduras. Her family, however, said they heard screams coming from her coffin. When they finally managed to break it open, however, she was dead. They said her body was still warm though. Doctors later determined that she had wrongly been pronounced dead.


Sipho William Mdletshe

In 1993, Sipho and his fiancee were in a car accident in South Africa. While his fiancee survived, he was pronounced dead. Fortunately, workers at the morgue heard his screams, and he was rescued.


Virginia Macdonald

In 1851 Virginia was living with her dad in New York when she became ill, died, and was buried in Brooklyn. Following the burial, however, her mother told people that she didn’t think her daughter was dead. Apparently, she was convincing enough that they dug up Virginia’s body. The investigators found that she had in fact been buried alive, and there were scratch marks evident on the inside of her coffin.

Angelo Hays

After a motorcycle accident near the French town of St. Quentin de Chalais, Angelo was buried. Insurance inspectors dug him up a few days later, however, to find him alive and still breathing. Angelo went on to invent a security coffin with a radio transmitter and even a toilet!

Essie Dunbar

In 1915, Essie was declared dead in South Carolina. Since Essie’s sister arrived late to the funeral, she asked if she could see Essie one last time. Crazily enough, as soon as the coffin was opened, Essie sat up as if nothing had happened. She lived for another half century.
