Review of a new book,
Review of a new book, BURIED ALIVE.
“In 1937 Angelo Hays was interred in the village of St. Quentin de Chalais after a motorcycle accident. When insurance inspectors exhumed him a few days later, they discovered that Hays was still alive. A head injury had caused his system to shut down temporarily, making him appear dead. Hays recovered and went on to invent his own security coffin equipped with a chemical toilet and radio transmitter. He became a minor celebrity in France, performing for a TV audience from six feet under.”
