As far as wild nights go, this man's tale can probably top them all.
A man in Russia’s Far East has woken up in a morgue after having been declared dead.
Before the incident he had been drinking vodka rounds with friends and passed out.
An ambulance was then called and medical staff declared the man dead before taking him to the morgue, according to local news sources.
He was placed in a mortuary freezer - but ended up regaining consciousness.
“That night the local morgue was filled to its capacity, the bodies were not only on the shelves, but also on the floor of the freezer room, where our ‘dead’ hero was allocated,” Aleksey Stoyev, a police spokesman, told a local newspaper.
“At some point, the man woke up, failing to understand where he was. It was very dark and cold. In addition his brain was foggy due to the influence of alcohol. In the darkness, he felt someone’s completely cold limbs and in fear rushed to the door. But it was locked.”
According to the reports, the man started screaming for help, drawing the attention of the morgue’s guard, who reported the situation to the doctors.
Opening the door police were met by the ‘resurrected’ man who in panic ran out of the room. He was later questioned by police and released.
Returning to the place of the party, he found his friends were still drinking, but this time commemorating him.
