Couldn't the medical authorities conduct some sort of test, before slamming down the coffin lid. A big ostrich feather and bare feet springs to mind.

This quote is from a reader's comment on a report from the Daily Mail about a 88 years old woman was taken into a coffin because people had thought she died while she was virtually alive.

I don't understand the sentence I hightlighted in red. Could someone please give me a hand?

Thank you!

    Sounds to me like a foot tickling test, to check if the person is still alive.
