A 37-year-old Ohio man whose heart stopped for 45 minutes earlier this month says medical staff can't explain how he came back from the dead.

ABC News reported Tony Yahle's wife woke up early on the morning of Aug. 5 and noticed her husband's breathing was irregular. Melissa Yahle couldn't wake her husband up, so she called an ambulance and he was rushed to the hospital.

That afternoon in the hospital Tony's heart stopped, according to WHIO TV, and for 45 minutes while doctors tried to revive him, the cardiac monitor stayed flat-lined.

Finally, doctors declared him dead and his son Lawrence, 17, ran to his father's hospital bed.

"Dad, you're not going to die today," he said, according to ABC.

And he didn't die. After Lawrence had pleaded for his father to stay alive, medical staff said they noticed his heart beat pulsing again once or twice each minute, according to ABC.

"When I looked at the electrical activity, I was surprised," Nazir told ABC. "I thought we'd better make another effort to revive him."

His heart rate sped up and a week later, Yahle is already feeling well enough to speak to television cameras, telling media he thought his survival was miraculous.

The doctor, who expected Yahle to at least require a heart transplant, used similar words to describe the patient's recovery.

"I'm calling it a miracle because I've never seen anything like it,"  :happy: Nazir told ABC.

It's always a miracle until it's explained by science.

Good story, unless its a fake and the doctors / family are in on it just to make a few bucks from the media :p Other than the word of those who stand to make money from this is there any actual proof?

Wonder if someone had a connection not plugged fully in?    

 

 

I did CPR on a 3 month old for 20 mins who was in asystole,  got him back.

You'll do a lot of things for your children, including coming back from death apparently.

^ That's not very scientific, and flies in the face of the facts.

 

Formal 'Science' ignores many things that do not fit into its preconceived ideas.

 

Hence, the reason for posting this story. ;)

You mean you don't like science when it flies in the face of what you want believe?

Lets combine a poorly connected heart monitor with a very faint heartbeat, and it's definitely more convenient for a hospital to declare a miracle than to admit that they didn't assess his condition properly.

 

If he had died, and the hospital had admitted that the monitor was connected improperly, they would be opening themselves up to a lawsuit.

My thoughts exactly!

 

Man comes back to life? More like man was incorrectly declared dead. Not saying I don't believe in miracles, but I'd definitely place my bets on that being the reason, knowing doctors and all. :sleep2:
