Man dies after downing vodka with pals then wakes up in morgue and returns to party
After returning to the party the man saw his friends were still drinking – but this time in tribute to his memory.
A man who ‘died’ after downing shots of vodka with friends was taken to the morgue before waking up in a freezer, reports claim.
He had his “miraculous awakening” after partying too hard with pals, who then called an ambulance to the property in Khasanky, in Russia’s far east.
When medics arrived, they declared the man dead and took him to the morgue.
Speaking to the local newspaper Khasanskiye Vesti, police spokesman Aleksey Stoyev said: “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.”
He woke up in the freezer, before stumbling his way out of it towards shocked staff.
He added: “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.
