Tina Hines woke up from her brush with death to scribble a hair-raising message to her loved ones: & # 39; It's real. & # 39;
She had always been healthy and was looking forward to a walk at her home in Phoenix, Arizona, with her husband, Brian, last February, but Tina collapsed as the couple went outside.
Brian dropped to the floor next to his wife who had turned grim purple, he told AZfamily.com and started giving her CPR.
The mother of the four was temporarily revived, but Brian had to bring her back again before paramedics arrived and took over.
In the shocking ambulance and in the hospital, the Tina team continued to lose, which was resuscitated a total of six times before arriving at the hospital.
For a 27-minute collective, Tina was actually dead, she and her family told AZfamily.com.
He was intubated at the hospital and unable to talk, but as soon as she awoke, Tina motioned for something to write with, so that she could scribble her cryptic message, which she claimed to be referring to heaven.
In almost unreadable prints, Tina Hines scribbled & quot; it is really & # 39 ;, referring to the vision of heaven that she said that in the 27 minutes she & # 39; died & # 39; was entered after a sudden cardiac arrest
Tina had always been healthy, until she suddenly collapsed in February 2018 (left). As soon as she awoke, Tina motioned to a pen and wrote & # 39; it & # 39; s real & # 39; in a notebook (right)
& # 39; It was so real, the colors were so vibrant, & # 39; Tina told AZfamily.com.
She described seeing a figure of whom she says it was Jesus standing in front of the black gates, behind which glowed a bright yellow light.
When her lovers asked the still intubated Tina what was real, & # 39; nodded & # 39; they simply go upstairs.
Tina is very lively today to tell her remarkable story.
About 90 percent of people who get into acute cardiac arrest outside of a hospital environment die.
Tina & # 39; s husband, Brian (right), has given CPR and probably saved her life
But the resuscitation of her husband probably made the difference between life and death for Tina.
Cardiac arrest survival rates change dramatically when bystanders administer CPR, ranging from 10 percent to nearly 45 (although women are 27 percent less likely to receive CPR from someone other than a paramedic).
One of the reasons why cardiac is so deadly is that it happens completely unpredictably.
Even someone like Tina without a history of the heart or other health problems can experience an unexpected failure in the electrical system that retains the rhythm of the heart and keeps it cold.
This horrible health problem affects more than 356,000 American adults a year.
The vast majority have no memory for the short periods in which they were technically dead, but a remarkable 10 to 20 percent have visual or sensory & near-death experiences, according to various studies on the so-called & # 39; NDE & # 39; s & # 39 ;.
Just as mystical as they feel to those who have had NDEs, scientists have begun to come closer to explain what happens in the brain when the heart stops.
As soon as the heart stops beating, the blood stops flowing to the brain – eventually.
Tina recovered remarkably well after a short stay in a hospital to recover from her brush with death (left, pictured with an unknown friend). Her niece, Madie Johnson, was so inspired by Tina's story that she had her aunt's message tattooed on her wrist (right)
But in the immediate aftermath of a sudden cardiac arrest, something strange seems to be happening, according to a small 2013 study by the University of Michigan on rats.
When they induced cardiac arrest in nine animals, they saw a burst of brain activity at the moments that would normally precede death.
And not just any activity, but in a dying brain they say & # 39; a widespread, transient wave of highly synchronized brain activity with characteristics associated with a highly excited brain. & # 39;
In other words, at the first moments after the body's death, the brain behaves as if it is very alive, has complex thoughts and maybe even & # 39; hyperactive & # 39; is.
They suspect that this outburst of surprisingly organized, probably deliberate, brain activity may be a way in which people have near-death visions, particularly those focused on what they think they will see after their lives have ended.
But science is still far away from a clear confirmation of that theory.
For Tina and her family, writing was perhaps cryptic, but they believe the message was clear: heaven is a real place.
Tina's niece, Madie, Johnson, even got the message from her aunt tattooed on her wrist as a reminder of her own beliefs.
