A 53-year-old man whose heart had stopped for over 3 hours was brought back to life by doctors.
Arun Bhasin was taken to Croydon University Hospital where he was subjected to a revolutionary new CPR machine that was able to perform over 20,000 chest compressions on him. "He was pretty much dead in that he had no pulse or heartbeat for three-and-a-half hours so it is amazing that we got him back," said Dr Nigel Raghunath.
A man whose heart had stopped was brought back from the dead after three-and-a-half HOURS. Arun Bhasin, 53, was rushed into hospital after being found unconscious in the street in temperatures of -10C. But as he was being wheeled in, he went into cardiac arrest and was just minutes from death.
