Kentucky man Walter Williams, who made national headlines two weeks ago when he woke up in a body bag at a funeral home after being pronounced dead, has died at age 78.

"Well, they came and got him again around 4:15 a.m (Thursday)," Williams' nephew, Eddie Hester, told WAPT. "I think he's gone this time."

The first time around, Williams was pronounced dead at his home in Lexington on Feb. 26.

He then awoke at Porter and Sons Funeral Home prior to being embalmed and was taken to the hospital, then released.

"The same coroner and the same funeral home director came this time, and when they got there, I said, 'I thought y'all were going to send somebody else,' and we laughed about it. Everybody laughed," Hester said."It was a two-week miracle for me and I enjoyed every minute of it, and my family did too.”

According to WJTV, "Snowball" Williams told the county coroner “be sure this time” before he died.
