Dead Mississippi man wakes up in body bag

It's a story that's so bizarre, it's hard to believe it's true.

But it is.

A 78-year old man in Mississippi was declared dead Wednesday by a coroner, but hours later, as the body was about to be embalmed - a miracle - the man started moving from inside the body bag.

    The man was so drunk he was considered dead. This should be a WAKE UP CALL but it won't soon as they patch him up he will be back drinking unlit he passes out. The amazing thing is he doesn't think he's got a problem.
