SALVADOR, BRAZIL (CBS46) -

A 54-year-old Brazilian man has quite a story to tell.

Valdelucio Goncalves was declared dead after suffering two heart attacks at a hospital in the city of Salvador, Brazil.

Except -- he wasn't dead.

The man's brother went to the morgue to dress him for a funeral when he noticed the body bag was wriggling.

The brother called for help and the staff got him out and confirmed that Valdelucio was very much alive.
