Screams & bangs heard coming from coffin one hour after burial

Post by Kitkat on 28th September 2014, 12:56

Everyone's ultimate nightmare ...  scared

Greek woman heard screaming, banging from inside coffin after allegedly buried alive: report

Panicked cemetery workers said they heard the 45-year-old woman desperately trying to get out of her casket roughly an hour after she had been buried. When she was finally pulled to the surface she was found dead, prompting an investigation into the cause of her death.

A 45-year-old woman was reportedly heard screaming and banging from inside of a coffin after being buried in a Greek cemetery on Thursday. By the time she was extracted she was found dead.

Muffled screaming and banging coming from inside a freshly buried coffin sent Greek cemetery workers in a panic to unearth a 45-year-old woman, according to local reports.

Workers desperately ploughed through the recently packed soil to get to the woman on Thursday, but by the time they got inside — an hour after her funeral — she was found dead.

An investigation into the initial cancer-victim's death is now underway with some claiming she died from suffocation while nightmarishly entombed, the BBC reported.

Others say she had never awakened in the first place.

"I just don't believe it. We did several tests including one for heart failure on the body," Dr. Chrissi Matsikoudi told MEGA.

A doctor who happened to be at the scene of her coffin's removal in the town of Peraia, south of Thssaloniki, reportedly examined her body and determined that she had been dead for hours.

"It would have been impossible for someone in a state of rigor mortis to have been shouting and hitting the coffin like that," said Matsikoudi.

Fortunately the woman's relatives had already left the cemetery by the time the terrifying chaos ensued.

But neighbors and children playing outside allegedly heard the woman's cries as well.

The victim's family is reportedly mulling a complaint against the doctors who treated her at a cancer clinic.

Oh my... it must have been coming from another grave.
Even if nobody else was officially buried that day it might have been somebody "unofficially" buried nearby.
Surely the authorities would have investigated any freshly turned earth around the site?
Horrific to think of someone buried alive, but what else could it have been? Pranksters?
Makes me cold just thinking of it. chair

In the old days,they were buried with a bell so if they were still alive,within the coffin,they could ring the bell.

My aunt was buried with her Bingo card in her hand in the coffin! giggle
When she was alive she loved her bingo - I would pick her up and take her there regularly once a week without fail.  She was in hospital for about 3 months before her passing and while there I continued to go on our Bingo night and would always play the last book of the set on each page "for her", so any win on that book would be hers - and I would report back to her on my daily visits to the hospital. In all that time, neither of us had any luck at all.

When she passed, my brother was unable to come to the funeral, as living in Indonesia he could not arrange to get here in time - but he wrote a really lovely letter to her, which we read out to her while she was laid out in the Chapel of Rest, and his letter was then placed in the coffin with her also.

Later that year, my brother was hospitalised himself, after suffering a heart attack.  No such thing as any kind of equivalent to NHS in Indonesia, medical bills mounting up (have to pay so much per day in the hospital - then more for operations, each treatment etc etc) and with him being out of work for a while also because of this health problem, it was a really worrying time, especially with him being so far away.
We planned a trip to go visit my brother and his family in Jakarta (for the first time - had not been there before).  Managed to get a really good deal with a "cheap" tickets price - the cheapest we could get, though it was still a lot of money to fork out and knew we would have to be scrimping and saving for a good while later to make it up - but nothing compared to what they were going through at that time.
The day before we travelled, I went to Bingo - and had a win! - on "my aunt's book" (the bottom book which I had reserved for her).  It was a BIG win (£1,600) - the exact amount we had forked out for the tickets to Indonesia! toast
Not only that, it was called on number 72 - the door number of her house.  
I like to think she had something to do with it .... purr  flower

Yes, he's doing fine now, thanks. Smile   He's just finished his contract of employment in Saudi Arabia and in fact arrived back in the UK today.  We're all pretty much relieved that he's out of there - (I was going to say back to 'safety', but there's nowhere really 'safe' these days). rock

There have been quite a few 'events' relating to my aunt - but the best one I think is this:  As I have already said, she did enjoy her Bingo and I used to take her regularly every week, something that she really looked forward to.  They would frequently do these 'freebie giveaways' there, where a certain amount of stamps (one stamp per attendance) would entitle you to whatever was the gift of the month.  Not long after her passing, the freebie there was a steam iron.  I didn't really need one of these, but as I had the required number of stamps I was given one and took it home with me, thinking I can give it to someone as a pressie maybe, someone that did need one (though I couldn't think of anyone).  I took it out of the box to have a look at it, then placed it back in and left it on the kitchen counter and went to make a cup of tea.  After a little while, still in the kitchen, I heard a muffled phone ringing tone, I looked around and this seemed to be coming from the iron!!  I stood there for a bit thinking to myself - "the.iron.is.ringing"...  lol - I even picked it up to check if maybe it wasn't one of these gadgets that actually was a phone that looked like an iron ...  As I picked it up, a voice said "HELLO"!  A man's voice. I actually dropped it (in shock) at this stage lol and then picked it up again and really had a good check round it, no - this definitely is not a phone, it's an iron - and it has just phoned me and is now saying hello to me (a second "hello" had come in the meantime).  In a bit of a dazed state, I picked up the whole box - and discovered that my phone was underneath the box, with the words "NORA CALLING" flashing across the screen.  Another muffled "hello" and I realised that it was my cousin's voice saying hello (Auntie Nora's son).  Still confused, I put the phone to my ear and realising that my cousin was on the other end, I asked him had he just phoned me?  Erm, he said, you've called here (Auntie Nora's home phone).  So, it seemed the inevitable question to ask - "Kev, could you by any chance make use of a nice new steam iron?"  He answered that he really needed a new iron as the one he's got is on its last legs.  Well, I said - I've got one for you; it's a present from your mum!  I brought it over to him the next day - and when I saw the state of the iron that he had been using I was left without a shadow of a doubt that this had most definitely been somehow engineered by my Auntie Nora ... since her passing Kev was now living and coping in the house on his own.  The iron he had been using had apparently had a fall at some stage and HE HAD IT STUCK BACK TOGETHER WITH STRING AND SELLOTAPE!!!  There were electrical wires dangerously exposed just next to the handle - it was a potential fatally hazardous disaster in the making!  This really was too much of a coincidence to conceive that this had been anything other than an engineered communication from his recently departed mum.  Very Happy

Yikes, KK, that had my hair standing on end, and you do have the knack of telling it well.

Thanks for sharing it with us.
