Cops raise living dead off motorway

2011-11-01 22:13

Vienna - A bloodied body caused a fright in an Austrian motorway rest area on Tuesday morning, before police raised it again from the dead.

Passers-by alerted the authorities at dawn that a body covered in blood lay in a rest area off the Tauern motorway near Salzburg.

As it turned out, the "zombie" was just a drunken young man in a Halloween costume with his face covered in fake blood, sleeping it off in his car, police said in a statement.

The 23-year-old driver in the living dead costume had stopped at the rest area after he damaged a tyre and could not continue on his way.

He had his licence suspended for drunk driving.
