Weird - Man in California buries son, learns son alive later

It's like a horror story, although the horror is more in terms of the psychological impact it has on the people. One of the worst experiences that they say that a parent can have is to witness or be told about the death of their children, and this is what this father had to experience.
One of their children (a man aged 57) had been suffering from mental illness and was living on the streets. Then his father got a call that their son had been found dead and that the police department had done verification of identity using fingerprints. In their shock, the family gathered together and did the burial for their son, and went through their grief. However, to their shock and relief, 11 days later, they got a call in which his son told the father that he was indeed alive, and the family learnt that the coroner had made a mistake in identification and that the son was alive (link to article):
Eleven days after laying his son to rest, Frank J. Kerrigan got a call from a friend. "Your son is alive," he said. "Bill (Shinker) put my son on the phone," Kerrigan said. "He said 'Hi Dad.' " Orange County coroner's officials had misidentified the body, the Orange County Register reported Friday. "When somebody tells me my son is dead, when they have fingerprints, I believe them," Kerrigan said. "If he wasn't identified by fingerprints I would been there in heartbeat."
