How often are people reported coming back to life long after being
pronounced dead (not including small periods of time after which they
are ressucitated)? Example: Being buried alive, sitting up on the
mortician's table; waking up in the morgue; etc. Acceptable answers such as "once
a year in the US", "10 recorded incidents worldwide since 1890",
"three or four times a week for the average mortician", etc.

I seriously doubt there are any accurate recorded numbers on this
topic. After all, if someone were buried alive, how would we know?
What if they were cremated and not technically dead? These "deaths"
would not be recorded.

I've heard of anecdotal evidence outside of hospitals, but I've never
witnessed one of these resurrections. I worked in health care for over
25 years.
There is no answer at this time.

I just wanted to mention that a person suffering from severe
hypothermia may easily be mistaken for dead.

"three or four times a week for the average mortician"? Yikes!

I met a woman a few months ago who had just returned from the dead.

She told me that she had actually died twice.

On the more recent occasion, she said that when she arrived in Heaven,
the Angels got out their harps and started serenading her.

This prompted her to get out her guitar and join in.

However, St Peter then arrived and he was furious.

'Get out of Heaven immediately', he yelled, 'You are not ill enough to be up her.'

With that, he sent her back to Earth and I am prepared to testify that
she did seem very much alive to me.

So .... Doubters Beware!
