Woman Brought Back From The Dead 114 Times in 30 Hours

Daily Mail Reporter - A woman has praised ‘miracle’ doctors after she was brought back from the dead 114 times in thirty hours as her heart repeatedly stopped.

Ann Mintram said she went through ‘total hell’ as medics battled to save her life with electric shocks. The 55-year-old ended up with scorch marks on her body from the shocks as doctors at two hospitals repeatedly resuscitated her lifeless body for more than a day and a night.

A year on from her ordeal she has thanked the dedicated medical teams who refused to give up on her.

Mrs Mintram, from Waunfawr near Caernarfon in North Wales, was struck down by Sudden Adult Death Syndrome – in which the heart stops for no known reason – after a collapse at home while watching television.

Sudden Adult Death Syndrome? They might as well call it “I Slept Through That Class In Med School Disease.” Open a book and diagnose the woman, don’t scribble down on her chart the first thing that pops into your head.

Overlooking the laughable syndrome name, at what point do you actually give up trying to resuscitate a person? I mean that had to have killed the elecricity bill, especially since she’s packing a few pounds. Listen, I’ll give a flashlight a few shakes to get it goin, but I’ll pronounce that battery dead if it shorts out more than once.
