The Walking Dead!

There are many ways to tell if a man is dead. You could look for a pulse. You could check to see if he's breathing. You could even just ask, "Hey, man, are you dead?"

The family and friends of 34-year-old Dama Zanthe of Zimbabwe didn't think to do any of these things – because they came very close to burying him. As mourners filed past the man's coffin, one of his friends noticed his legs were moving. He quickly called an ambulance, which took Zanthe to a hospital where he was pronounced not dead.

According to Zanthe, he is still very much alive and doing well. He must be very tired, though, as we'd imagine he'd be too afraid to go to sleep.
