A person who feared being buried alive decided to have a window fitted into his grave.
Dr. Timothy Clark Smith was so concerned about the prospect of being buried alive that he created his own unique grave to allow people to peer down and see that he was really dead.
The grave in the US state of Vermont has become a tourist attraction and was recently explored by TikTok user @bobbiecurtislee.
She explained: “Timothy patented the design for his own gravesite; not only did he include a window on his tombstone, he also built a contraption that included a bell.
“In the case that Timothy woke up underground, he could pull a string and ring the bell to signal for help.
“Timothy passed away on Halloween in 1893 and he never needed to use the bell.
“The window to his grave is still there, although the visibility to see inside of it is very low after so many years.”
