This place used to be about conspiracies. It's turned into a circus.
Pass the bread.

The panic began with an outbreak of alleged "vampire" attacks in East Prussia in 1721 and in the Habsburg Monarchy from 1725 to 1734. Two famous vampire cases (which were the first to be officially recorded) involved Peter Plogojowitz and Arnold Paole from Serbia. As the story goes, Plogojowitz died at the age of 62, but came back a couple of times after his death asking his son for food. When the son refused, he was found dead the next day. Plogojowitz soon returned and attacked some neighbours who died from loss of blood. In the other famous case, Arnold Paole, an ex-soldier turned farmer who allegedly was attacked by a vampire years before, died while haying. After his death, people began to die, and it was widely believed that Paole had returned to prey on the neighbors.
These two incidents were extremely well documented. Government officials examined (and wrote reports of) the cases and the bodies, and books were published afterwards of the Paole case and distributed around Europe. The controversy raged for a generation. The problem was exacerbated by rural epidemics of so-claimed vampire attacks, with locals digging up bodies. Many scholars said vampires did not exist, and attributed reports to premature burial, or rabies.

The victims awoke from their comas and realise they were buried. The victim would then try to claw out of the coffin and eventually eat there own flesh out of hunger. (hence the blood).

Perhaps people don't realise that once the coffin lid is screwed down, its airtight, there is enough air for about an hour, if that, so, anyone in a closed coffin for more than an hour, is dead.

What do all of these places have in common (taken from the published articles)
- southern Egypt - village of Naga al-Simman - southern province of Luxor
- northern Argentina (Perrando Hospital)
- Nawalgarh (a town in Jhunjhunu district of Rajasthan state, India)
- Kari village at Nawalgarh tehsil in (Jhunjhunu district in Rajasthan)
They are places where the standards of health care practice in hospitals, and health care knowledge in CPR and other life saving practices by families is really poor and lacking.
In other words, you don't see these stories popping up in North America or certain parts of Europe where doctors actually know when and how to pronounce a body dead. For instance, I have never heard of a person waking up from the dead published in the news in Canada because our health care knowledge and practices and standards are high.
