From Reuters, purveyors of premier strange news, comes the Twilight Zone story of Carlos Camejo, who woke up — painfully — on a morgue slab in La Victoria, Venezuela, after being declared dead in a road wreck.

Medical examiners began the autopsy with an incision to Camejo's face, but realized something was wrong because the dead don't bleed. They quickly stitched up the gash.

"I woke up because the pain was unbearable," said the 33-year-old Camejo, whose tale appeared Friday in El Universal newspaper, along with a photo of Camejo holding the autopsy order.

Reuters wrote today that it could not immediately reach hospital officials to confirm the events.
