A Florida man who suffered a heart attack inside a hospital has been brought back from the dead thanks to a cardiologist's prayers, according to a local report aired on Miami's Channel 7, an affiliate of Fox News.
Jeff Markin walked into a hospital, collapsed and died of a heart attack, despite the hospital staff's best efforts to save them. After 40 minutes, he was given up for dead.
Dr. Chauncey Crandall told a reporter, "His face, his arms, his legs were pitch black with death. I said, 'Let's just call the code, let's end it because there's no life left.'"
Then he felt the urge to pray. Or rather, he heard a Voice telling him to pray.
The doctor's prayer — along with another jolt from the electro-paddles — resurrected dead man Markin.
Markin says he spent his time being dead in the back of a funeral home, where he met Bob, his guardian angel.
"There was a figure that identified himself as Bob, and he was going to make sure that everything was going to be OK. I'm figuring that was my guardian angel. At that time, a very peaceful feeling and very relaxed feeling came over me, and then he said he had to go and, the next thing I know, I woke up in my daughter's arms."
