In the Vault: The Case of the Living-Dead Beekeeper

"... he was reduced to a profane fumbling ... among the long boxes .... In this funereal twilight he rattled the rusty handles, ... and ... began to realise the truth and to shout loudly ...", In the Vault, HP Lovecraft


In a freak bee sting accident, a Polish beekeeper was pronounced dead – until he awoke in his own coffin !

Doctors pronounced 76-year-old Jozef Guzy DEAD when he fell unconscious after he was stung by a bee in southern Poland. Jozef was packed into a coffin and driven to his local undertakers. His wife asked for his personal possessions, and the undertaker closed the lid. Somehow jarred, Jozef awoke and started shouting and banging on the closed coffin lid.

A forgiving, kind soul Jozef said, "The undertaker saved my life. The first thing I did when I got out of hospital was take him a pot of honey."
