We've heard of people in foreign countries who accidentally get pronounced DEAD then wake up at their funerals. You don't really see that happen in the U.S., where we generally can tell a dead person from a living one.
Around 9:00 P.M. on Wednesday night, the county coroner declared Walter Williams dead when he couldn't find a pulse.
Four hours later, employees at Porter and Sons Funeral Home in Lexington, Mississippi got to work and saw one of their dead bodies trying to KICK its way out of a BODY BAG.
Turns out Walter WASN'T DEAD . . . and he was just HOURS away from being embalmed.
The coroner is now blaming it on Walter's pacemaker malfunctioning. The county sheriff says, quote, "I asked the coroner what happened, and the only thing he could say is that it's a miracle."
Another miracle will be him not getting fired.
