84-Year-Old Woman Wakes From The Dead In Morgue

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

Zwolen, Poland: The morgue technicians at a hospital found the body of an 84-year-old woman moving in her body bag. They immediately alerted doctors, who came in and verified that the woman’s vital functions had returned.

Her husband had called for an ambulance after she fell unconscious in a nearby village. She was then pronounced dead by a medical examiner at the hospital.

We don’t know many other details, but we do know that someone is going to lose their job over this. How creeped out would you be if you woke up in a body bag?

The Mystery of Mirin Dajo by Jeff Wagg

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

Arnold Gerritt Henske was a Dutch artist and designer with a paranormal bent. In 1933, he changed his name to Mirin Dajo (Esperanto for “Amazing”Dajo”) and took the stage. His performance? Having his assistant impale his hypnotized body with swords and rapiers. What at first glance looks like a striking version of an Andrew Mayne illusion, was actually something quite different.

It was real.


Doctors with x-ray machines confirmed: the weapons were penetrating his body, missing major organs somehow. He walked and even ran with swords sticking out of him, and all this took place with little or no bloodshed, even when the implement was removed.
