Man wakes up in morgue

The Associated Press reported that a South African man spent 21 hours in a morgue, in the mistaken belief he had died.

The man started yelling, prompting morgue workers to run away in fear. They eventually returned and removed him from the fridge. He was then taken to a nearby hospital and later discharged by doctors who deemed him stable.

If you woke up from the dead, how do you think you'd feel? Relieved, grateful, disappointed?
