    This is crazy and almost unbelievable. This lady had no brain waves for 17 hours and her heart had actually stopped for 10 minutes towards the end of this time.

    She "woke up" however after her family had said their final goodbyes and her tubes were removed.

    I figured from the title of this thread that they had put her on ice. People can survive some pretty crazy things when freezing their ass off. When facing long periods without oxygen or cardiac arrest, hypothermia can be your best friend.

    I think she heard the family calling dibs on some of her posessions and woke up. :D It's good that she is still around and that is one heck of a story that she will be telling her friends and grandkids.

    That's pretty lucky that she woke up, I wonder what happened. It'd be scary to know that you were once dead and now you're alive again.

    17 hours of actually being dead? and no brain damage? I don't believe it. :-/ I'm going with that hypothermic explanation mentioned above.

    me too
