man buried alive in Russia dies The man got his friend to cover the coffin with soil

After digging a hole in a garden in the eastern city of Blagoveshchensk, the 35-year-old climbed into the coffin - which had holes for air pipes - and got a friend to cover it with soil to a depth of around eight inches.

If you're the cop who has to break the news to this man's family, how can you really do it with a straight face?

"Ma'am? Your husband is dead but the good news is you don't have to spring for a funeral!"
