"Civil authorities in your area have reported that the bodies of the dead are rising from their graves and are attacking the living."

That was the emergency message that some TV viewers saw in Montana after the station was hacked Monday, the Great Falls Tribune reported.

"Do not attempt to approach or apprehend these bodies as they are considered extremely dangerous," a man's voice was heard saying as the message scrolled at the top of the screen.

Officials at KRTV said in a statement the station's emergency alert system was breached Monday afternoon and they are investigating.

The Great Falls Police Department said it received at least four phone calls from confused viewers wondering if the unusual message was true, the newspaper reported.

"We can report in the city, there have been no sightings of dead bodies rising from the ground," Lt. Shane Sorenson said.

Police are investigating.
