Dead man lives

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

RIO DE JANEIRO: A brick­layer re­port­edly killed in a car crash showed up alive at his fu­neral.

Rel­a­tives of Ademir Jorge Gon­calves, 59, had iden­ti­fied him as the vic­tim of a car crash last week, po­lice said.

What fam­ily mem­bers didn’t know was that Gon­calves had spent the night at a truck stop.

He did not get word about his fu­neral un­til it was hap­pen­ing.

“The corpse was dis­fig­ured, but dressed in sim­i­lar cloth­ing (as Gon­calves),” po­lice said.
