A man believed to be dead woke up in a morgue and scared off attendants who thought he was a ghost.

The 50-year-old started screaming to be let out after waking up inside the morgue, his shouts frightened two attendants so badly that they fled the building, believing the place to be haunted. "His family thought he had died," said a spokesman when asked how this could have happened.

Wow! If my relatives tried to do that to me without verification of my death, I would make sure at least one of them would take my place. And it would be verified if you know what I mean.

24 hours in cold storage. He's lucky he survived. Bet those morgue workers haven't been back to work too. I love Monty Python and the Holy Grail!
