Ohio man revived 45 minutes after death

OHIO - August 22, 2013

On August 5th, Tony Yahle was legally declared dead. Doctors had exhausted all attempts to revive a heartbeat - they had given up.

An entire 45 minutes went by when Yahle suddenly showed signs of life.

Doctors say there is no medical explanation.

Yahle believes it was divine intervention.

"It definitely strengthen my faith, my family's faith, everybody I know's faith," Yahle said. "And like I said, if it strengthens everybody's faith then I'll take the lumps for it."

Yahle has been home for a week now, and says he feels just fine.
