Holmes County, MS (CNN) — A Mississippi man declared dead awakened in a body bag at a funeral home.
Walter Williams "woke up" from the dead in Holmes County.
The coroner told us he checked the pulse around 9:00 p.m. Wednesday night, and pronounced Williams dead at his home in Lexington, with no heartbeat.
After the coroner helped move Williams to porter and sons funeral home, workers were getting ready to embalm him, but that's when he started to move.
Byron Porter says it’s the first time he's ever seen anything like it—a man inside the zipped up body bag, kicking to get out.
Paramedics rushed Williams to the hospital, where family members say they're happy he's alive.
