A man in Russia’s Far East woke up in the morgue after having been declared dead, local media report. Before the incident, he had been doing vodka rounds with friends – and after the “miraculous awakening,” he went back to the party
His friends called an ambulance and medical staff hastily declared the man dead before taking him to the morgue, according to the daily. However, the man eventually came back to his senses (somewhat) – only to find himself in a mortuary freezer.
“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 the 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.”
He started screaming for help and pounding on the door. His calls drew the attention of the morgue’s guard, who reported the situation to the doctors. The latter thought that the guard was imagining things, according to the local report. Nonetheless, out of cautiousness the doctors called police.
Opening the door police were met by the ‘resurrected’ man who in panic ran out of the room, according to the department of criminal investigations. Police questioned the man and released him.
Returning to the place of the party, he found his friends were still drinking, but this time commemorating him. The person who opened the door was so shocked that he fainted, Khasanskiye Vesti says. The commemoration ceremony was quickly revamped into a re-birthday party.
Enough alcohol will pickle someone to where they are well preserved enough to wake up after being dead.
Boris Yeltsin is back? That guy sure can drink.
“It’s a dead man’s party.... who could ask for more.....”
Totally rad kick @ss! Dude, I wanna party with him!
Tim revives, see how he rises

Welt the floor, your trotters shake
Wasn’t it the truth, they told ye lots of fun
At Finnegan’s wake
I wants me a re-Birthday Party!
Finally, someone with a comeback to that guy from the Hangover movies asking “Yeah, but did you die!” ...
Now there’s a die hard!
Sounds like the plot of some absurdist Russian novel. Just add a few hundred pages of ruminations on guilt and descriptions of the snowy landscape.
I miss all the good parties.
Dude, step away from the alcohol...
It seems to satisfy people.
One of my favorites!
Betcha Putin can't move like this.
In Russia we embalm before death.
Drunk zombie ping!
I knew a guy, hardcore alcoholic. He got in an argument with someone at a bar, and when he left, the guy shot him 9 times with a .22 pistol in the parking lot. The bullets missed his vital organs, but still, the paramedics said he probably would have bled out if his metabolism hadn’t been so slow from his contant drinking.
After that, he claimed drinking saved his life and refused to quit!
Kind of like in the U.S., we see a crazy news story and say “well, it’s Florida”. I imagine there must be a community of Russian emigrants in Florida somewhere... imagine how crazy that place must be!
