    From what i've heard if you dig in a zigzag formation instead of straight up the dirt wont collapse on you. The hard part is breaking the casket. Dont ask how I know this ok

    If it's a cheap coffin/not great quality, kick the middle part of the top (the weakest part). Then hopefully the opening will break, fill the coffin with as much dirt as you can (which comes falling down). Once you can see an opening, use your legs and try to get out. Also don't panic as you will breathe in more air, which is not good considering the fact that you would have limited air in the coffin.

    And if you have a cell phone buried with you, use it :laugh:.
    I was gonna ask how you know this , upon second thought , i really don't :O

    Yeah, that's *******s.

    There's a reason why throughout the years Buried Alive has essentially become the holy grail for escapologists, and that's because it's one escape that is believed to be nigh on impossible and has never been done from a fully sealed casket buried 6 feet deep.

    Well, it was a legitimate fear of the Victorians, of George Washington, and is one of the biggest human fears.
    There are safety coffins still available, but most cemeteries don't have a nightwatchman.

    But, I'll take some comfort from the fact that nobody has been saved by a safety coffin anyway. It would pretty much be it.

    I have just read an article on surviving premature burial: it instructs to take your shirt off, tie it in a certain way to prevent debris from falling all over you.

    I can't paste link from my phone =_=

    Yes unfortunately it is

    There is....a process in the UK. I take some comfort from the fact that, to be buried alive, a whole bunch of processes have to go wrong. You'd have doctors suggesting that you are clinically dead as opposed to a state of suspended animation...there's also the embalming process too, which if you weren't dead before...you'd have family seeing you before they put you in the coffin and when you're dressed up to go away.

    I don't take well to having to deal with my own death, much less, being buried alive or dying before 'my time.' But, small comforts.
