“I’m never drinking again,” must simply not be in one Russian guy’s vocabulary.

According to Russia Today, the unidentified male was drinking with friends Wednesday night in the coastal Khasanky Region.

After several rounds, he passed out and was declared dead by a team of paramedics, who took him to the local morgue.

Several hours later, “the man woke up, failing to understand where he was,” said police spokesman Aleksey Stoyev. “It was very dark and cold. In addition his brain was foggy due to the influence of alcohol. In the darkness, he felt someone’s completely cold limbs and in fear rushed to the door.”

He was eventually found by the morgue staff, and after being questioned by police, our hero went right back to drinking with his buddies because though he might have been given a miraculous second chance at life, that still doesn’t make up for having to live in Russia.
