Sven-Olof Svensson, 81, from Jönköping, Sweden, opened the Jönköpings-Posten newspaper to read the news, as he does most every day. At his advanced age, he usually checks the obituaries first to look for friends who may have passed away recently. He was surprised to read his own obituary.
It seems that Svensson was recently hospitalized. His 90-year-old sister called the hospital, taked with a doctor, and got the impression that her brother had passed away. She wrote the obituary and and sent it to the newspaper.
"We are all on the same road," said Svensson. "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."
