Man revives after being dead for 45 minutes
OHIO (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Southwest Ohio doctors say they're stunned by a man who was revived 45 minutes after his heart stopped beating and he was declared dead.
Everybody started telling me how it happened and you know, that's when I started understanding, you know, a miracle happened, said Tony Yahle.
Doctors say 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 say he fully awoke at the hospital five days later.
Tony's son Lawrence Yahle says he spoke to his father as he lay dead and believes his father heard him.
"I pointed at him and I said dad you're not going to die today and I stood there for a few more seconds and I was about to walk back to comfort the family," said Lawrence.
The teen says his father revived shortly after.
Right now doctors have no explanation.
