A Man Found Out His Wife's "Death" Was Just A Grotesque Mistake
A fellow by the name of Abragh Mohamed from Morocco suffered a terrible tragedy in 2014. His wife had been in a car accident and was rushed to the hospital. While she was being taken care of, Mohamed returned to his home to get some things and came back, which was a four-hour journey. In that time, he was informed his wife passed away. Her body was already wrapped up, and so Mohamed had a funeral. Case closed.
Two years later, Abragh heard from friends and family who'd just watched a local Unsolved Mysteries-style TV show. It featured Mohamed's wife, very much alive, saying she was trying to find her husband who she'd lost touch with, in what amounts to one of the greatest understatements of all time.
They were reunited, so that's good news, obviously. But there is no explanation of how this could actually happen that isn't horrifying. Remember, the last time he saw her, she was in the care of a hospital. Did his wife have memory loss? Was it an intentional scam on somebody's part? Whose?
The Independent ended its recapof events by suggesting that medical and/or administrative incompetence is to blame for the mix-up. None of that accounts for two missing years, of course. Or what exactly prevented her from just, you know, going home. Also, this guy literally buried a human body! Who the hell was that? Is their family looking for them? How was a TV show, two years later, the easiest way for the wife (who I'm not naming because she wasn't named in the story) to find Abragh? There are no answers here, only a series of increasingly alarming questions.
