Most sane people are afraid of being buried alive. It usually is a death sentence. I count it as one of my greatest fears, and I hope I never have to go through it. However, one night watching Kill Bill Vol. 2 which features a scene about being buried alive (and surviving it), I started to wonder if other people in history survived being buried alive and how they managed to survive. With a little research I found out that some lucky people actually survived the ordeal, so this list was kind of comforting for me to know that it is not a 100% guaranteed death sentence, just like a 98% guaranteed one.
