GOOD NEWS Mississippi Miracle: Elderly Man Wakes Up at Funeral Home in Body Bag
A truly incredible story is making national headlines this morning, as a Mississippi man was pronounced dead and brought to a funeral home, where he woke up!
Walter Williams, 78, was pronounced dead by the local coroner at his home in Lexington Wednesday night. That's when Williams' body was placed in a bag and he was transported to a local funeral home.
The coroner described what happened next as a "miracle."
Here's more details from the report by WAPT-TV in Jackson:
After the coroner helped move Williams to Porter and Sons Funeral Home, workers were getting ready to embalm him, but that's when he started to move.
Byron Porter said it's the first time he's ever seen anything like it. Williams was inside the zipped-up body bag and kicking to get out.
Paramedics rushed Williams him to a hospital, where family members said Thursday night that he's happy to be alive.
The coroner thinks maybe Williams' pacemaker stopped working and then restarted.
So what was the reaction of Williams' family?
"Hallelujah! Thank you Jesus!" yelled Williams' daughter, Martha Lewis, in an interview with reporters.
