CLEVELAND, Ohio — Brian Miller was declared dead after suffering a massive heart attack at an Ohio hospital.
Then to the surprise of nurses and doctors, after 45 minutes, his heart randomly started beating again.
Miller, 41, told WJW-TV that while he was out, he saw a light and relatives who had passed away.He described walking down a flower-lined path into white light — until he came upon his stepmother, who had died recently, “She was the most beautiful thing when I saw her, it was like the first day I met her, (she) looked so happy.”
Miller remembered, “She grabbed ahold of my arm and told me, ‘It’s not your time, you don’t need to be here, we’ve got to take you back you’ve got things to go and do.’”
ICU nurse at Ahuja Medical Center Emily Bishop calls Miller’s recovery “amazing.”
After 45 minutes, his pulse returned “out of nowhere,” Bishop said. ”His brain had no oxygen for 45 minutes, the fact that he’s walking, talking, laughing, everything is amazing.”
