Man wakes up in a body bag

Posted: Updated:

MISSISSIPPI (WKOW) -- Did getting out of bed this morning seem like rising from the dead?

Well, one man in Mississippi knows how you feel after he woke up in a funeral home in a body bag.

A coroner pronounced Walter Williams dead around 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday, but several hours later, it was a different story. Workers were getting ready to embalm him when they noticed the bag was moving. They opened it up and there was Walter still very much alive!

Paramedics rushed him to the hospital. The coroner thinks his pacemaker may have stopped working and then started up again. Family members say they don't know how much longer he'll stick around this time, but they're happy he's back for now.
