Earlier this year one man proved that the line between life and death isn’t as clear as we used to believe.
25 year old Justin Smith took a walk one cold day in January and never returned home. He was found frozen solid laying in a snowbank after a storm with no pulse and with his face blue. They rushed him to a hospital but he’s been out in the cold for 10 to 12 hours, much longer than 6 minutes which is maximum a human body can survive without oxygen.
At that point all they needed was a doctor to legally pronounce him dead. Instead they followed a hunch and drained his blood out, reheated it and pumped it back in. What happened next is a medical miracle.
