    Thats one of the new tricks they have been using the last few years at Erlanger in Chattanooga. Did that to my aunt this year.

    People don't die in 15 minutes or for 15 minutes - lots of people flatline (I did) and then regain consciousness.

    As I said, 'reports of my death are vastly exaggerated'. They worked on me for a long time. When I woke up, someone was yelling at me, lol.

    Cold can be very good for heart attacks. Slows down the damaging processes and prevents more heart injury.
