Woman Survives 45 Minutes with No Pulse

Ruby Graupera-Cassimiro, 40, survived 45 minutes without a pulse and spontaneously revived just as doctors at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, FL, were about to pronounce her dead. The “miracle woman,” as she’s been dubbed, experienced a rare complication from a C-section when amniotic fluid entered her blood stream and caused clots. She became unconscious as doctors and nurses used chest compression and electric shock paddles to no avail. They called her family in to say goodbye and after they left the room to pray for Graupera-Cassimiro, her heart monitor went into action with one blip followed by another. She was taken off life support a day later. She suffered no brain damage or physical injuries from efforts to revive her. Doctors are calling this case “unexplainable” and “miraculous”.
