THESSALONIKI, Greece — A cemetery worker said a woman screamed from her coffin after being “buried alive,” according to a news report.
Metro reported that a cemetery worker in Greece told police a woman cried for help from her grave – but died right before she was about to be rescued.
The 49-year-old cancer patient was buried in Peraia cemetery near Thessaloniki, according to the report.
She had reportedly been pronounced dead earlier that morning and a funeral was held for her.
But a cemetery worker and visitors claim to have heard banging and shouting coming from the grave. The woman reportedly showed no signs of life once the coffin was opened.
The woman had previously been pronounced dead, but a coroner will be carrying out a separate examination on the body, according to the report.
The woman’s family is reportedly thinking about filing a complaint against the doctors who pronounced her dead.
