Dead man comes back to life after 45 minutes

An Ohio man who was pronounced dead suddenly came back to life after his son called out to him.
37-year-old Anthony Yahle was rushed to hospital after his wife, who was a nurse, found him unconscious at their home and couldn't wake him up. Cardiologists examining him couldn't find any arterial blockage and believed his prognosis was good, but then without warning he suffered a complete cardiac arrest and despite working on him for 45 minutes doctors were unable to save him.

When his family who were waiting to hear news in a room nearby were informed of his passing, Anthony's teenage son Lawrence jumped up, charged through to where his father lay and said to him "Dad, you're not going to die today."
Incredibly, doctors noticed that a short time later Anthony's heart had started beating again. He went on to make a full recovery and suffered no ill effects, something that is itself unusual for someone who had been technically dead for such a long period of time.

This is the second such case to hit the headlines in recent weeks, earlier this month Venessa Tenasio from Melbourne was reported to have been declared clinically dead for 41 minutes before being revived by doctors.

There ya go, Science finally has proof of the paranormal and the spiritual world. His Spirit was just about to totally leave when it heard his son call out to him which put the life back into the physical body upon re-entry. (That's just my explanation of it). God works' in mysterious ways people, there have been numerous cases of people floating over their bodies when they died but after being revived they can clearly recall floating over the hospital room.

Maybe he wasn't really dead, even though the dr.'s thought so.

Maybe he wasn't really dead, even though the dr.'s thought so. Perhaps, but if you have no heartbeat, your brain and organs presumably are not getting oxygen. You would think if he was in a hospital and was hooked up to the usual machines, they could tell if he had a heartbeat or not. If he was truly clinically dead for 45 minutes or more it's a miracle that he does not have brain damage.

God works' in mysterious ways people, there have been numerous cases of people floating over their bodies when they died but after being revived they can clearly recall floating over the hospital room. How many of us would be unable to describe a hospital room if asked? And yet oddly enough, when tests have been performed putting playing cards in areas where they could only be seen from above, not a single person reporting such an experience was able to identify the cards. As an example of the value of anecdotes in suggesting directions for research, Dr. Penny Sartori placed playing cards in o... [More]

Cardiac resuscitation algorithms are quite specific; perhaps the buildup of epinephrine had effect albeit quite delayed. Regardless, if this is accurate, it is indeed miraculous as deterioration occurs quickly in the absence of perfusion.

in the old days he would have been pronounced dead and burried.Some revived in their coffins but died a more horrible death.Many villages in the old country have a vigil where they lay the body out in public view in a cool room where relatives watch over the body. Usually the body is burried th second day.

.......No. This is NOT proof of any sort of fictional after-life or paranormal. It is pure science and links we already given that explain this phenomenon. If the man was truly dead for that long then his brain would've been mush and there would be no cognitive abilities. On a side note I read where some man had no discernible heart-beat yet it was his arteries and vessels that were doing the job of circulation. This might help explain why he suffered no brain or organ damage. At least not that we know of. How many "dead" people have you personally seen? Have you ever witnessed a death? Are yo... [More]

There are simply forces that science cannot explain in this world. Things happen that science can't account for and this seems like one of those rare instances. I'd LOVE to see a reasonable explanation for this but the truth is there is no rational explanation therefore it is something unknown and most likely outside our realm of understanding.

How many "dead" people have you personally seen? Have you ever witnessed a death? Are you basing your views on what you've derived from posts on the internet? Once when I was very ill and having heart arrythmias, extremely drained, dying actually, I went to bed very ill. I had a "dream" that night that I had died. I went to a place where there was a lot of brightness, but dull brightness ie, no glare. I liked it there but the idea of my daughter, a young toddler then being left behind was not an option. As soon as I thought that I began hearing this most etherial choir with unearthly beautiful... [More]
