Waking up in a morgue sounds like something right out of a horror movie, but believe it or not, it happens more often that you realize.

There have been multiple instances when doctors declare a person dead only for them to come back to life hours later. Sometimes this happens because a patient's vitals, like their pulse and breathing, may be too weak to be detected, and other times, this is brought on by what is known as Lazarus Syndrome.

Named after the Biblical figure, Lazarus, who was bought back to life by Jesus, the inexplicable phenomenon occurs when a person who couldn't be resuscitated experiences a spontaneous return of circulation.

One man recently experienced this real-life nightmare when he woke up on the autopsy table just four hours before the procedure was scheduled to begin.
