Florida Man Returns From the Dead Just In Time To Celebrate Halloween
Of all the many things Florida Man has done, making a return from the dead in time for Halloween ranks among his biggest accomplishments.
FLORIDA MAN STRIKES AGAIN!
DATELINE – Miami and the saga of Florida Man Moises Ramos. He’s a 51-year old real estate broker who got into a minor car accident as he was pulling out of his driveway.
This happened back in 2019.
Ramos told USA Today in an interview the other day, “I guess we were both at the wrong place at the wrong time. She hit me in the rear, spun my car around, and we had to call it in for insurance purposes.”
Ramos went on to say that he did file an insurance claim, then went about his life not thinking anything further came from the crash until he applied to become an Uber driver in 2022. That’s when his application was denied.
Because he was listed as a fatality in that car crash back in 2019.
I’m Not Dead
Now, Ramos obviously knew there was a mistake. He thought, though, that the cops had declared the other person dead. That other person was not dead either.
But when Ramos went to the Cutler Bay Police Department to look into the matter, he found out what had actually happened. The lady that was behind the desk, she seemed a little perplexed. “She’s looking at me a little weird,” Ramos said. Then she went up to get the report. When she came back with the report, she said, “You’re the fatality, not her.”
So he had to get his record change back at the state level, and that was not exactly an easy process. In fact, he called several times over the course of the months that followed without any luck whatsoever.
Help Me, Howard To the Rescue
So what he did was he contacted a local Miami television station. There’s a segment there called Help me, Howard. So apparently, Howard helped him.
A spokesperson at the Miami Dade Police Department confirmed the account of the mistaken fatality and said it was corrected by local law enforcement. When asked about the incident, the state released the following statement via email and confirmed that Ramos’s license is no longer marked as deceased. The statement reading, “The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles is the state repository for crash reports, which means we can only enter what is provided to us from law enforcement. If law enforcement incorrectly coded the crash report to show Mr. Ramos was deceased, they would need to submit a corrected crash report to the department for correction.”
So here on Halloween 2023, we have Florida man returning from the dead.
In fact, Florida Man’s daughters were teasing him, saying he’ll be the star of Halloween this year. “You can be the walking dead, Dad.”
