In this regard, what happens to the body after death in a coffin?

Just a few minutes after death, its cells collapse and release water. Then other energy-guzzling organs follow. That night, microbes eat through your gut and escape into the rest of your body. They release toxic gases that cause your body to bloat up and smell.

Beside above, can you hear after death?

Remember: hearing is thought to be the last sense to go in the dying process, so never assume the person is unable to hear you. Talk as if they can hear you, even if they appear to be unconscious or restless. If possible, lower lighting until it is soft, or light candles, making sure they burn in a safe place.

How do you know when death is hours away?

In the last hours before dying a person may become very alert or active. This may be followed by a time of being unresponsive. You may see blotchiness and feel cooling of the arms and legs. Their eyes will often be open and not blinking.

What's the longest someone has died and came back to life?

Lazarus syndrome, (the Lazarus heart) also known as autoresuscitation after failed cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is the spontaneous return of a normal cardiac rhythm after failed attempts at resuscitation. Its occurrence has been noted in medical literature at least 38 times since 1982.
