MISSISSIPPI - The Holmes County, Mississippi coroner pronounced 78 year old Walter Williams dead Wednesday night, ruling it natural causes.  "After they got through checking him, the coroner, they pronounced him dead and put him in a plastic bag, zipped him up, and took him, put him in the hearse and they left", said Eddie Hester, Williams' nephew.

Two hours later, the family received a shocking phone call.  "The mortician said something wasn't right.  His leg started moving", said Martha Lewis, Williams' daughter.

Williams was moved from the funeral home to the hospital.   Now, instead of planning a funeral, the family is praising God for what they believe is a miracle.

Sources tell WKRG News 5, Williams suffered a heart attack a few weeks ago and was under hospice care.   Meanwhile, the owner of Porter and Sons Funeral Home, Byron Porter said he's never experienced anything like this in all of his 40 years of being in the funeral home business. The coroner says it's a miracle.
