The man passed out while partying with pals. First responders thought he was dead, the newspaper Khasanskiye Vesti reported.
Authorities took him to a morgue, but he woke up in the middle of the night, confused and frightened about being locked in a cold room filled with dead bodies, police said.
He banged on the door until cops let him out.
Incredibly, the man didn’t go home immediately, officials said. He instead went to his pal’s place, where the booze-fest had happened, knocked on the door and found his friends mourning his death, the paper reported.
