Man Found Alive in Body Bag


Walter Williams is back from the dead.

After mistakenly believing he had died, Willams’ family called the coroner to his Mississippi home.  The coroner said Williams had no pulse and pronounced him dead.

The next day, workers at a funeral home were preparing to embalm Williams when he started to kick inside the body bag.  The coroner believes his pacemaker stopped working and then started again.  Williams, a farmer, is happy to still be alive.
