Mississippi man awakes from the dead

A Mississippi man declared dead, woke up in a body bag at a funeral home.

Walter Williams "woke up" from the dead in Holmes county yesterday.
   
The coroner says he checked Williams pulse around 9 o'clock Wednesday night, and pronounced him dead at his home in Lexington.
   
The coroner says he was moving Williams to "Porter and Sons" funeral home, and the workers were getting ready to embalm him.
    And he started to move.
   
"I stood there and watched them put him in a body bag and zipped it  up."
"That was a 10:30 and at 2:30 my cousin called me and said "not yet "and I said what you mean "not yet". 'He said daddy still here'."

Paramedics rushed Williams to the hospital.
And family members say he's still there and happy to be alive.
