Mississippi man in body bag wakes up in funeral home

Do you want to have nightmares forever?

Imagine this scenario: You wake up in the dark with your entire body contained in a bag. You can feel cold metal on your back. The bag is constraining all your senses. Finally, someone begins to unzip the bag. It's then you see the embalming equipment waiting for you.

That's what happened to one elderly Mississippi man, according to Fox News. The county coroner was called to the Lexington home of 78-year-old Walter Williams after his family believed he had died. Williams had no pulse and was pronounced dead before being taken to Porter and Sons Funeral Home for embalming.

Then he woke up.

"I asked the coroner what happened, and the only thing he could say is that it's a miracle," Willie March, Holmes County sheriff, told

Doctors believe that Williams' pacemaker failed and then resumed working, effectively bringing him back to life.
