BURIED, HE STILL LIVES
War Veteran was apparently dead -- Kick of Foot Saved Him.

Centralia, Mo., Oct 15 (no year)
James M. Hulen, who has just celebrated his seventy-fifth birthday, claims the distinction of being the only man who, after he was pronounced dead and had been buried, lived to tell the story. Hulen was shot through the right eye with a .44 caliber bullet during the Civil War. He was pronounced dead, was buried and the clods were rattling down into his grave when his foot kicked up through the dirt.
The burial was stopped and Hulen removed from the grave. The other dead were buried and presently the grave diggers came back, expecting to find Hulen really dead by this time. But his heart was still beating and he was sent to a hospital.
The experience occurred when Hulen was in the First Missouri Brigade Co. G, under command of Col. Cockrell. The brigade was at New Hope, Ga. attempting to cut off Sherman's march to the sea.
