At Beaumont Hospital in Michigan, the medical staff is shocked due to an uncommon event in which they called “a miracle”. It is the case of a 20-year-old young man who died for 20 minutes then came back to life with supernatural strength.
Michael Pruitt is the name of this miracle young man. He was carrying a metal ladder that accidentally connected with a live electrical wire and shocked him until his heart stopped.
“I remember being electrocuted while holding that ladder and shaking, and then nothing,” he recalled.
Dr. Angel Chudler explained “They brought in this perfect young man who had no vital signs. I said to my team, ‘We’re bringing him back.’ And then, I said to him, ‘You better come back!’” Chudler and her team shocked Pruitt’s heart with a defibrillator to revive him but nothing happened. She tried again with a more intense shock and his heart started beating again after two minutes to everyone’s delight.
“When he became conscious again, he was like ‘The Hulk,’ grabbing the railings and shaking the bed with huge strength. It took the entire care team to hold Michael,” clinical nurse Yasmeen Bachir said. “I guess every superhero has to die at least once.”
Barbara Smith, who is director for trauma services, described Pruitt’s revival as miraculous.
“In less than five minutes, brain cells start to die from lack of oxygen. Michael’s resuscitation is miraculous. He did not lose any brain function. It’s a testament to the importance of immediate and continuous CPR to move oxygenated blood to the brain,” she said.
“I knew he’d be OK when Michael made a sarcastic gesture when I asked if he had any other superpowers. My first-born had returned from the dead!” His mother said.
