Company offers fake funerals

A company are offering people a chance to contemplate life whilst they lay in a coffin.

The Hyowon Healing Centre in Seoul, South Korea is hoping to combat the country's high suicide rates by asking people to undergo the experience, the Daily Mirror newspaper reports.

Park Chun-woong, the president of a human resources firm who took part in the activity, said: "Our company has always encouraged employees to change their old ways of thinking, but it was hard to bring about any real difference.

"I thought going inside a coffin would be such a shocking experience it would completely reset their minds for a completely fresh start in their attitudes."
