Historical Cases of Live Burial

“A woman had been buried in the morning. In the following morning whining was heard in her grave. It was opened and the woman was found still alive, but she mutilated half of her right arm and the whole hand. She was finally restored.”

From: Premature burial and how it may be prevented: with special reference to trance, catalepsy, and other forms of suspended animation, by William Tebb and Edward Perry Vollum. Second edition by Walter R. Hadwen. London, Swan Sonnenschein, 1905 p. 254.
