(Reuters) - A funeral director in Mississippi got a bit of a shock this week when a man, brought to him in a body bag, kicked to get out just before he was to be embalmed, a local TV station reported.
"He was not dead, long story short," funeral director Byron Porter told broadcaster WAPT late on Thursday.
The man, Walter Williams, had been pronounced dead on Wednesday after the coroner arrived at his home in Lexington and found no pulse. Williams was then taken to the funeral home.
