Declared dead, he wake up during funeral. Now he died again

 

Walter Williams is dead twice. The 78-year-old Mississippi man that two weeks ago woke up in a body bag at a funeral home, after being mistakenly pronounced deceased, is dead once again yesterday, at 1 a.m. in his home.

 

Holmes County Coroner Dexter Howard said Walter Williams died at his home in Lexington around 1 a.m. Thursday. The cause was not released.

 

Williams’ story went viral after he was pronounced dead Feb. 26. Workers at Porter and Sons Funeral Home were getting ready to embalm him when Williams started to move.

 

The father of 11, grandfather of 15, and great-grandfather of six had gone into hospice in late February because of congestive heart failure. He was declared dead by a coroner the first time when neither the coroner nor others, including nurses, could find a pulse.
