Ohio man declared dead comes back to life
OHIO (KGO) -- Doctors are stunned and a family is relieved after a man declared dead came back to life.
Tony Yahle, 37, was suffering from irregular breathing in his sleep so his wife called for help and performed CPR. He was transported to a medical center in Dayton, and declared dead by a cardiologist.
About 45 minutes later, as nurses prepared to let the family view his body, he showed signs of life.
"The doctors had all given up. I mean, rightfully so. It had been so long, but for me to wake up without any brain damage or anything like that, it is another part of a miracle. To be without oxygen for 45 minutes is huge," Yahle said.
Doctors say they've never seen anything like it. Yahle remained unconscious for five days but says he now feels fine. He says he had no after-life experience and doesn't remember any of it.
