I remember reading in a biography of George Washington that being buried alive that way was a real fear in colonial times and that Washington made special terms in his will about this to be really sure he was dead before they buried him.

I also recall reading that this may have been one of the sources of vampire myths -- people trying to dig themselves out of shallow graves in Eastern Europe scaring the locals.

People used to be buried with bells that were connected through rope to the inside of a coffin, so that if someone woke up then they could ring the bells. That would be one of the scariest things I can imagine.
