However, the cold temperature of the morgue helped the man to recover consciousness. According to the morgue, the guard on duty heard the man moaning and was stunned to discover the corpse had risen.

The employee covered the man with a blanket and called the police. After recovering from the cold and answering questions from the agents, Nowak got dressed, gathered his belongings and left the place in a taxi to return home.
However, halfway through, the man changed his mind and returned to the same party where he was previously before passing out on the street.
