The 81 year old Sven-Olof Svensson from Jönköping, Sweden, was hospitalised on Christmas Eve 2013 after feeling sick. Unfortunately, his older 90 year old sister didn’t quite grasp the doctor’s report over the phone and thought her brother had died in the hospital. Shortly after an article about Svensson’s death appeared in the local newspaper and the man realized he was believed to be dead.


His sister didn’t realize her mistake before a family friend got involved. The unnamed friend went to the hospital in order to gather Svensson’s belongings and found the man sitting on the bed – alive and well.
