Woman Rehearses Own Funeral By Lying In Coffin For Hours

A woman in the Dominican Republic decided to rehearse her own funeral by inviting loved ones to 'mourn' her fake death as she lay in a coffin for hours.

Mayra Alonzo, 59, was desperate to know what her funeral would be like, so decided to stage a rehearsal in the city of Santiago at the end of April.

She arrived in a hearse, lying in a coffin she'd rented for the day and dressed in white.

Friends and family then took turns to say their teary goodbyes - fake crying and all, although some apparently did a much better job than others at feigning sadness at the bizarre event.

According to news site Listin Diario, Alonzo's unusual party cost her $1,000 (£710), and she spent several hours inside the coffin while her guests enjoyed food and drinks and exchanged stories about her.

And it seemed to go down well with Alonzo, who described the gathering as a 'dream come true', thanking her friends, family and neighbours who helped her organise the fake funeral.

Listin Diario reports that Alonzon also warned her loved ones not to die anytime soon, as being inside the coffin was a very unpleasant experience. Who knew?

Recently, a YouTuber buried himself in a coffin underground for 50 hours, documenting the experience on camera.

MrBeast - real name Jimmy Donaldson - spent more than two days in a box underground for the entertainment of his 57.2 million YouTube subscribers.

In the 12-minute video extracted from his 50 hours underground, MrBeast talked viewers through his peeing process (empty bottles), and confessed he'd been holding in the number twos while in the coffin.

With more than 30 hours left, he cried a predictable lament: "I wanna move around, but I can't."

He couldn't because he knew the deal was that if he got out early, his mates got to taser him in the balls.

A day in, and the side effects of lying in a box underground started to take their toll.

He said: "My back hurts, I'm starting to feel claustrophobic, I'm bored out of my mind, I smell pretty bad."

After an hour of digging, his pals dug a hole down to his coffin to send an important message. A message on a piece of paper that simply read: "Penis."

Clearly this - and the fear of taking a taser to the nuts - was enough to spur him on, as he made it past the 50-hour mark. In fact, it was a bit longer than that by the time they got him out.

Upon his release, the 22-year-old felt a touch emotional, perhaps understandably.
