Man breaths back to life 45 minutes after heart stops – doctors
WEST CARROLLTON – U.S. doctors said they’re stunned by a man who revived 45 minutes after his heart stopped beating and he was declared dead.
Doctors said presumed-dead diesel mechanic Tony Yahle was being prepared by nurses to be seen by his family when he began to show signs of life. They said he fully awoke at the hospital five days later.
The 37-year-old Ohio resident’s cardiologist, Dr. Raja Nazir, said he’s been a topic of discussion among doctors.
The Dayton Daily News on Tuesday reported (http://bit.ly/1516ptK) teenager Lawrence Yahle said he spoke to his father as he lay dead and told him he wasn’t going to die that day.
The teen said his father revived shortly after. He said he “went from hopeless to hope in an instant.”
