Elvis Presley body viewing: Eyewitness who FAINTED shares memories from day after he died

Elvis Presley died at home in Graceland on August 16, 1977. His funeral took place two days later, but on August 17, fans queued up for his body viewing. One eyewitness present was June Walden, who was captured on film being carried inside after fainting.

Now in a new interview with Elvis expert Billy Stallings Spa Guy on his YouTube channel, June recounted her fainting and viewing Elvis’ body.

She revealed how it was “a very hot, blistering day” and how she’d been standing in line with hundreds of people to see The King’s coffin.

Accompanied by her friend Ted, June told him she wasn’t feeling too well.

She said: “The next thing I knew, I fainted.”

Elvis was just 42-years-old when he died of a heart attack on the toilet.

In his last few years, The King had become very overweight and addicted to prescription drugs.

From 1974-1976, Elvis performed almost 400 concerts, but sadly he was struggling to keep up his energy.
