Walter Williams, man declared dead, wakes up in body bag



Workers at a Mississippi funeral home say they found a man alive and kicking when they opened a body bag.

Holmes County Coroner Dexter Howard calls it a miracle that 78-year-old Walter Williams is alive.

The coroner was called to Williams' home in Lexington, a community north of Jackson, where family members believed he had died.

Howard says Williams had no pulse and was pronounced dead Wednesday at 9 p.m. local time.

Early Thursday, workers at Porter and Sons Funeral Home were preparing to embalm Williams when he started to kick in the body bag.

Family members were called and Williams was taken to a hospital. Howard says he believes Williams' pacemaker stopped working, then started again.

Family members say Williams, a farmer, told them he's happy to be alive.

He's a cool cat with eight lives left eh? Can you imagine the shock at the
funeral home? They gave this guy a ride in a body bag and now they won't
be paid for services rendered. Maybe this guy can tell us about the after life
and if he saw anything we should talk about We hear about the white light
the angels the spirit world that saves the soul well what happened here any
of that

Why don't you find the thread and so the mod can combine them.. I didn't find any duplicate.

I searched "Body Bag" and "Walter Willimas," nothing showed up..

I went looking, could not find it. Not a problem. I do it as well.
Anyhow, the fellow passed a few weeks later. He was in a hospice when this happened.

I think what he meant was that there was another man that had also woken up in a body bag (this happened about a month/month and a half ago). That other man had lived for a few weeks after the incident and then died...for real this time.
