'Deceased' 83-year-old comes back to life

A Ukrainian woman who was pronounced dead in her home shocked doctors when she woke up 10 hours later.
Paramedics had been called out to the home of Ksenia Didukh - who hails from Stryzhavka in the Ukraine - by her daughter Tetyana Potomchenko after she took ill last week.

When medics arrived they were sadly unable to save her and she died soon afterwards.

The family went about making arrangements for her funeral, but around ten hours later the 83-year-old suddenly started to stir, prompting paramedics to rush her to a local hospital.

Incredibly she appeared to make a complete recovery and was soon wide awake and speaking.
During her near-death experience, Ksenia claimed that she had seen the kingdom of heaven and that she had heard her father - who had died many years earlier - calling out to her.

"My eyes opened, and people in white were standing around me," she said. "I thought they were angels but these were doctors. Apparently God had mercy on me."

The death certificate that had been issued was torn up after the news of her recovery.

"I have been working as a doctor for 20 years, but I have not seen anything like this," said Vinnytsia regional hospital deputy medical officer Dr Tetyana Katylova.

Even if NDEs end up being only products of our brains, it's at least a little comforting to know in our last moments we will feel good.

Wonder if something similar to this sparked the story of Frankenstien. We're much, much better at diagnosing death these days but 200 years ago that wasn't always the case.

Shelly got the idea for Frankenstein from  Luigi Galvani and other  early scientists experiments and public demonstrations of electrical reanimation of corpses. They never got the science to work but they made more than few corpses jump and twitch.

I heard the true story behind Frankenstein was that it was a writing contest amongst friends becuase they were all bored during a storm...

That is also part of the story it was written in a castle where her, her husband Percy and Lord Byron were staying. But, all of the experimentation done on electrifying the corpses was also ongoing and very much part of the public record and public discourse of the day..
