[[spoiler: And as it turns out, the titular ghost was killed when she was pushed and hit her head on the side of a fireplace. Her body was put inside a car, and the car dumped in a river... and then she woke up and started screaming for help just before the car was fully submerged. Even worse, out of the group of men responsible for her death, the one guy who tried to rescue her was held back by the other murderers.]]

***In most US jurisdictions neither embalming nor an autopsy are required for the majority of human burials. About 20 percent of US deaths are even subject to investigation by coroners or medical examiners. Of those, less than 25% are subject to autopsy. State laws and FTC rules prohibit the requiring of embalming. The FTC rule says ""Except in certain special cases, embalming is not required by law." A "special case" would include a funeral with viewing .

* This almost happens in ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs''; the Queen figured that once Snow White was apparently dead, her protectors, the dwarves would accidentally ensure her real death by burying her alive. Fortunately, they don't have the heart to do so.

* The victim in the ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' episode "Left For Dead" was buried alive.
* ''Series/NCISLosAngeles'' had Sam being buried alive in a prior mission, alongside with a partner of his, by Croatian soldiers. He was the only one who survived the event. Because of this, when a girl was buried alive by two boys whose uncle was an ex-con, Sam took up the mission without hesitation, focused on it with resolution like no other, and was fully ready to beat them up when demanding where she was, due to this being a very personal traumatic experience and a very huge BerserkButton for him. Luckily, she managed to be digged up before she ran out of air.

** Sarge once allowed himself to be buried for his funeral when his obsessive dedication to orders caused him to think he'd died and been replaced. He survived due to the ground giving out beneath him and landing him in an underground cavern before he ran out of air.
** This happened earlier to him in an April Fool's Day episode when Grif mistook him for dead in a Warthog explosion. He survived because, as he put it, "I ate my way out! The soft earth was like a delicious butterscotch brownie to me."

*** Similarly, fears of accidental live burial in German-speaking countries led to the creation of "waiting mortuaries", where corpses were kept above ground until they showed clear signs of decomposition. Again, there is no recorded case of a person actually reviving in one.
