His remains were put in a body bag and taken to a funeral home.  Two hours later, family members got a frantic call from the funeral home.  The workers said Williams was not dead.

While waiting to be embalmed, they saw his body bag move. They unzipped it and found the man alive and awake.

Williams is in the hospital. His doctors say he is doing fine and cannot explain what brought him back to life.
