A man freaked out after waking up from a deep sleep in the morgue following an alcohol drinking binge, police in Russia said.

The incident unfolded after the man of Khasanky, who was not identified, passed out after consuming too much alcoholic beverages.

The drunk man’s friends called an ambulance and paramedics rushed him to a nearby hospital. Doctors pronounced him dead, and he was taken to the morgue.

A spokesperson for the police department said that the night of the incident, the morgue was full to capacity and bodies were not only on the shelves, but also on the floor of the freezer room.

At some point, the man woke up, and he did not understand where he was. It was very dark and cold, and he was in a daze due to the influence of alcohol.

He started yelling for help and banging on the door. The guard at the morgue reported the situation to the doctors. The doctors first thought that the guard was imagining things.

However, out of caution, the doctors called the police. Police opened the door, and they were greeted by the drunk man, who ran out of the room.

One of those present at the morgue fainted. Police questioned the man before he was released.
