Speaking to the local newspaper Khasanskiye Vesti, police spokesman Aleksey Stoyev said: 

That night the local morgue was filled to its capacity, the bodies were not only on the shelves, but also on the floor of the freezer room.

Some time later, the man awoke from his booze induced coma and woke up in the freezer, before stumbling his way out towards shocked staff. “It was very dark and cold and his brain was foggy due to the influence of alcohol,” said Mr Stoyev. “In the darkness, he felt someone’s completely cold limbs and in fear rushed to the door.”

Police in the remote area, which is populated by 35,000 over 4,100 square kilometers, questioned the man before letting him go. In true hardcore style, he then returned to the party and carried on drinking with his pals. Legend.
