A man in Durban, South Africa, recently called a funeral parlor and booked a funeral and four coffins for himself, his wife and his two children. The only problem was that they were all still alive.
The unnamed man also called a florist to book for flowers. However, he did not provide a date for the supposed funeral, and when the parlor and the florist called his family the next day, they discovered that they were all alive and well.
They further discovered that the man had attempted to take his life by dousing himself in petrol and attempting to set himself on fire. Fortunately, according to his family, a pastor was able to talk him out of it.
