A Philadelphia woman turned up alive last week 13 days after her family thought they had buried her, CBS reports.

A body identified as Sharolyn Jackson’s was buried Aug. 3, after the Philadelphia Medical Examiner signed the death certificate. But then on Aug. 16, Jackson — 50 years old and very much alive — walked into a mental health facility, the local CBS affiliate reported late Thursday.

“You know how you feel that you’re just about to get over it, that she’s dead,” said Dave Minnie, Jackson’s father. “And then [Jackson's son] comes here with the news that she’s alive!”

The body had been found on July 20, apparently dead of natural causes. Both Jackson’s son and a social worker who knew her identified photographs of the body as hers.

Authorities are now planning to exhume the body in the hopes of making a correct identification.

Gingrich is a jerk a conservative Republican's idea of an intellectual like Limbaugh and Beck. Gingrich's and the GOP overreach which they gloated over, wallowed in like Orwellian "Animal Farm" piggies arrogantly shut down the government in 1995 also claiming they were speaking for "the American people."  At least they were fighting back then over the budget not trying to repeal or defund a law provides healthcare to millions. The GOP shutdown angered Americans, voted them out of power, Newt was kicked out for being dishonest, and reelected President Clinton who in turn created more jobs, 23 million, than Reagan, Bush I and Bush II combined and at higher tax rates. More jobs, few dead and wounded American soldiers, less National Debt, and a better performing Wall St. all happened under Democrats not Republicans.

The funniest part is where he says "just when you're getting over it," and it was only 13 days since her purported death! hahahaha. They sure missed her.

@BW_Ellis What in the world? Sounds like a soap opera. Have an old family tale of aunt Penelope being buried alive in 1894. Still warm...
