(Holmes County, MS) A Mississippi man was found alive inside a body bag at a Holmes County, MS funeral home.

Coroner Dexter Howard told WJTV it is a “miracle” 78-year-old Walter “Snowball” Williams is alive.

Williams’ family said he died at his home in Lexington, MS Wednesday night.

The coroner came and confirmed his death and took Williams’ body away in a body bag.

Williams’ body was about to be embalmed when it was discovered he was quite alive.

The coroner believes Williams’ pacemaker stopped working, then started again.

WJTV spoke to Williams’ family, who called his second chance at life is a gift from God.

“Seemed like he had more life in him again,” Williams’ daughter, Martha A. Lewis.. “And then we had just stopped talking, and he told us ‘what did you all stop talking for?’ Hallelujah, thank you, Jesus!”
