The coroner in Lexington, Mississippi says he checked the pulse and heartbeat of 78-year-old Walter Williams, and got no response.

So Walters was put in a body bag, and taken to a funeral home where workers prepared to embalm him.

Two hours later, funeral home employees say he started to move. Williams was rushed to the hospital and is now doing fine.

When the coroner was asked how this could happen, he said it was simply a miracle.
