In the year following the mugging death of a doctor's wife he turns into a drunken vagrant. On the anniversary of her death he is on the street with a wino friend when a car nearly runs them down. He pushes his friend to safety but is severely injured and ends up in a coma in the hospital. He awakens to find himself in the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii) 150 years earlier - trying to figure out what has happened.

A twentieth century man has an accident and ends up in a coma. While in the hospital, he is transported into the body of an 1820s sea captain.

When a bum, nicknamed “The Professor” is thrown into the water in an accident, he lay in a coma while his mind appears to have entered the body of a sea captain... in Hawaii... 150 years ago.

Not too bad of a story about reincarnation. However, I always thought that reincarnation was to the birth of another body, not one that was already there. An okay story, but not a favorite.
