‘Live’ corpse kept in glass coffin

THE body of a 17-year-old boy has rested in a glass coffin in his family home in Vietnam for 36 years after a local medicine man told his bereaved parents he was still alive.

The boy’s younger brother, Dinh Huu Tri, said that although no preservatives had been used, the corpse had remained mostly intact ever since it was dug up three days after burial, the state-controlled Vietnam News said.
