The Mississippi man who woke up in a body bag just a few weeks ago was again declared dead Thursday morning.

"The same coroner and the same funeral home director came this time. I said, 'I thought y'all we're gonna send somebody else.' We laughed about it, everybody laughed."

His family called it a miracle. When he woke up, the consensus was there might have been an issue with his pacemaker, making it appear as though he didn't have a heartbeat. Williams had been on hospice care after suffering a heart attack.

Now, Williams' family says they're glad to have had the extra time with him. According to WJTV, Williams died at his home around 2 a.m. Thursday. He was a longtime farmer and is survived by his family.
