Meet the ‘miracle man’ who woke up alive in body bag

You may have heard the story about the Holmes county man who woke up in a body bag at a funeral home; today we’ve learned more about 78-year-old Walter Williams.

His nickname was “Snowball” (he was born in ’36, the year of the big snowstorm), but now some people are now calling him a “Miracle Man.”

Mr. Williams, who lives in Lexington, was pronounced dead on around 9 Wednesday night.  The coroner could reportedly not find a pulse.

His daughter Gracie said, “He stopped breathing, the coroner pronounced him dead, and my brothers helped the coroner put him in the “bag”.”

A few hours later, workers at Porter and Sons’ Funeral Home prepared for embalming, they began hearing some noise coming from a place they’re not used to hearing noise: inside a body bag.

Funeral Director Byron Porter, who had gone to the family home with the coroner to pick up Mr. Williams’ body, says they thought it was due to the “deceased’s” pacemaker.

“We were getting ready transport him to the embalming table when we noticed he was moving, and had activities.”

When they finally opened the bag, Mr. Williams opened his eyes.
