I've just come across this....A 2 week year old boy in Leeds / Uk suffered a massive heart attack in 2005 and stopped breathing.Doctors tried for 30mins to bring him back, then had to give up. They handed the boy to his parents to let them say goodbye and thats when he started twitching. Doctors then managed to get his heart going again and he came back to life. There's no real explanation for that, a total miracle. Apparently it was a blocked aorta that caused the heart attack and he had to undergo major surgery to repair it. He is now 14 months old and appears to have suffered no permanent brain damage.

Again, not this case, but I did hear about a premature baby who was kept in hospital for several weeks, as most premature babies are. Shortly after her birth, her mother was told she could go home. As soon as mum went home, the baby would stop breathing. The hospital would call the parents, and they'd rush back to hospital. Once the mother held the baby's body, the baby would start breathing again. Then mum would go home, and baby would stop breathing once again. Apparently this happened a couple of times, and in the end, they just kept mum in hospital until the baby was ready to go home. It's just amazing what the human body can do! How resilient babies are, and just how little we still understand about how the our bodies work, even in this day and age!
