The report that the elderly South African gentleman was alive and well frankly came as a shock to his family.

That's because they thought he was dead after an asthma attack. And because they'd shipped him to the morgue.

So on a Sunday...it was quite a surprise to morgue workers to hear someone screaming from a refrigerator.

In fact, they ran away and called the cops.

They entered guns drawn...only to find a man so alive...he was quoting David Byrne from the Talking Heads " Once in a Lifetime"...quote..."How did I get here."

The police probably let the family handle that one.
