Buried alive: Time travel in the crypt

In the 18th century, Medical Science was still at its early stage of development.

Lack of necessary equipment meant that the diagnosis of death was often times a false conclusion.

Some forms of comatose states had sometimes been mistaken to death.

This, and the customary practice of a quick funeral after the event of death, has led to people mistakenly thought dead to be buried alive.

Asides from a few lucky escapees, people waking up trapped in coffins suffered a horrific fate In the 1700s, a terrible incident occurred in the city of Vác, according to records that survived.

On the night of the funeral a resident of Vác who was thought to have died, awoke in the crypt. This person climbed out of the coffin and started banging frantically on the closed crypt door.

According to legend, even though many people heard the scrambling, moaning and crying, it was considered to be the work of the devil, so no one dared approach the crypt.
