Man awakens on autopsy table

  1. http://abcnews.go.com/WaterCooler/wireStory?id=3611647

    Carlos Camejo, 33, was declared dead after a highway accident and taken to the morgue, where examiners began an autopsy only to realize something was amiss when he started bleeding. They quickly sought to stitch up the incision on his face.
    Holy crap!

    Wow. Interesting story if it's indeed true.

    Just curious, is it standard autopsy procedure to make an incision on the face?

    I thought most autopsies started with the Y-incision from shoulders to pubic area, and if the skull and brain are to be examined, an incision around the top of the head that connects behind the ears (so it won't be visible during the funeral).

    Maybe it's different in Venezuela... :uhoh21:

    I was wondering that too. (Hey, I watch CSI !!! )

    Perhaps there was something imbedded or some damage there?

    Where's Gil when we need him??

    Or Dr. Michael Baden? I love Autopsy on HBO. Wish they would come out with some new episodes...

    I found this while looking for info on autopsy procedures: Interactive autopsy. (FYI: It doesn't show real bodies.)


    OK, sorry for derailing the thread from such a serious topic. I just thought the interactive autopsy was sort of neat. Back to the news.
