How does someone make this mistake? Eleven days after laying his son to rest, a California man got a call from a friend who said,”Your son is alive!”

Apparently, Orange County coroner’s officials had misidentified the body. 

The mix-up started when a man was found dead behind a cell phone store. The man was told the body was that of his 57-year-old son, who had been living on the street.

When he asked whether he should identify the body, a woman said that identification had been made through fingerprints, but that wasn’t the case.

The family held a $20,000 funeral. Eleven days later the dad’s friend called and said his dead son was standing on his patio, and he was very much alive.

No word how the officials misidentified the body. The family plans to sue.
