Woman returns to life after nearly an hour of clinical death; claims deceased husband spoke to her


(NaturalNews) A week ago, Sonia Burton (50) decided to start her shift a bit earlier, arriving at the Gala Bingo Hall at 4:45 p.m. to have coffee with her colleagues. As she was briefly heading out of the dining area, she started to feel a deep pain in her chest and then suddenly collapsed. From this point onward, Sonia was without a heartbeat for 56 minutes.

The ambulance was called. During the four minutes it took them to get to Sonia, Karen Arkle – the former's boss – started resuscitating her. When the two paramedics on duty arrived, they took over CPR and continued the procedure without pause the entire time they were on route to the Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital in Cramlington.

They didn't give up

In what seems to be nothing less than a feat of modern day medical practice, the two paramedics were backed up by another colleague and a first year student, in their continuous struggle to bring Sonia back. Her brother, Mark, was close-by when the incident occurred, and his friends called him in time for him to arrive there while they were trying to resuscitate Sonia. His sister collapsed, and everyone around was in shock, so Mark couldn't do much but stand by and ask the paramedics not to give up. "I said 'please don't stop' and, they never did," the U.K.'s Daily Mail reported.

After coming back to life, Sonia confessed that during the time she was gone, she received a message from her late husband John, who died suddenly 12 years ago.

"I spoke to him and he told me that it was not my time and I should go back. To be honest, it felt very comforting," said the woman.

Stephen Eke, one of the paramedics, pointed out that there are 50 years of experience between him and his colleague Jason. In their experience, nobody ever came back after 56 minutes, making Sonia a true "living miracle," as she described her own case.

Her brother expressed his gratitude for what the doctors managed to accomplish as follows, "I couldn't be more thankful for everything Stephen, Jason and Gary [the paramedics] did for Sonia that day. To see Sonia like she was that day and to see her now is phenomenal, I can't express just what a good job they've done."

A sign of something more

Near-death experiences (NDEs) are quite common in people who are brought back from the state of clinical death. The neurochemistry of our brains may partially explain these phenomena that are so similar in thousands of unconnected cases around the world, but is that all, or is there a chance for life after death?

A recent study, one of the largest ever conducted in this field, took into consideration over 2,000 individuals, and found enough evidence to challenge the existing scientific explanation. For starters, the experiences or awareness of patients without a pulse was accurately proven to take place after the brain fully shut down, roughly 30 seconds into cardiac arrest. Furthermore, there was enough proof to support the fact that the unique narrated stories actually took place, instead of being conjured up by the individuals' minds.

Until we know more, all we have is each other

While it may still take some time for us to figure out what exactly happens during these near-death experiences, or after we pass on, there are things we can do for each other right now. In Sonia's case, the persistence and sheer determination of two paramedics made it possible for her to come back to life when all odds were against her. Because of this, she lived to see her four children and brother for another day. Every little effort counts. Sometimes, it can mean the difference between life and death.
