Miracle resurrection of Ohio man dead for 45 minutes

No word on if he had a near death experience.

Ohio man pronounced dead comes back to life after 45 minutes.

Earlier this month, Yahle’s family found his breathing was off and he didn’t have a pulse. Family members did CPR and he was eventaully taken to Kettering Medical Center.

The hospital said Yahle was “coded” for 45 minutes as team of medical personnel tried to stimulate his heart.

He was declared dead the afternoon of August 5.

Then he suddenly showed signs of life as nurses prepared him for his family. He would be taken to OSU Medical Center by CareFlite.

Yahle’s cardiologist said this case is beyond rare.”In the last 20 years, I’ve never seen anybody who we have pronounced dead and actually the patient we saw with no activity once we stopped doing all our efforts and then for him to come back… I’ve never seen it,” Dr. Raja Nazir said. “Actually, I’ve never heard of it.”

After being transferred to another hospital and in a coma for 5 days he says he’s now feeling fine.

Tony thanks God for “resurrecting” him and said it has strengthen his faith. It certainly is a very rare case and doctors are surprised themselves to see Tony alive.

Is it a miracle? No. You can never prove that it was. But it was unusual and so far there is no explanation for it. It’s not easy to find out how often this may have happened before or why his heart started again. This article does not contain medical data or information for us to make any judgements. That’s up to medical professionals to study. But somehow, I don’t think they will be saying this is proof of God in a scientific journal.

    This appears to be a case of Lazarus Syndrome, in which the relaxation of pressure invoked by cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) allows the cardiac muscles to expand, therefore triggering the cardiac muscle’s electrical impulses and the return of normal cardiac function. Hyperkalemia (elevated concentrations of potassium electrolytes within the bloodstream) in addition to high dosages of epinephrine are also theorized as plausible causes for such a phenomenon.

    It certainly does not corroborate the notion of a miracle, and merely seems to represent an extraordinarily rare, yet documented medical event, as it would seem evident the problem was cardiac-related.

    One has to wonder why he is thanking God. If God was watching out for him, why didn’t he simply prevent his “death”?

      Jack: That was an unstated point. ;-)

    The snippet above says that the “team of medical personnel tried to stimulate his heart” during those 45 minutes. If so, then there was at least some blood moving due to the prolonged resuscitation activity.

    Still, makes it no less a miracle (an extremely outstanding or unusual event, thing, or accomplishment).

      Disagree. A miracle involves a supernatural agent.
