Walter Williams was pronounced dead on Wednesday, but he woke up in a body bag on Thursday at the funeral home. According to a Feb. 28 report on WPTV.com, Porter and Sons Funeral Home in Lexington, Miss., was preparing to begin the embalming process on the 78-year-old-man when the body bag started to move. Needless to say, everyone involved was totally shocked.

While it is unclear exactly what happened, it is suspected that his pacemaker quit working and then resumed the next day. This explanation still leaves many questions.

Williams was under hospice care, and his family is not sure how long he will be with them, but they were very thankful that he is still alive. One family member is quoted as saying, “Not yet.”

Plans were changed at the Porter and Sons Funeral Home, and the very live body was transported to the hospital. The manager at the funeral home had never seen anything like it before.
