Sven-Olof Svensson, 81, checked himself into a hospital on Christmas Eve because he was feeling "unwell." Later that day, his sister spoke with his doctors and somehow walked away with the impression that Svensson was dead.
She wrote an obituary for him that ran in the local Jonkopings-Posten on New Year's Eve.
Svensson stoically told reporters that upon reading one's own obituary, "you don't feel much."
"We are all on the same road. Sooner or later you are going to end up in the obituary section. I've lived a fantastic long life, I'm 81 and can't complain about my age."
