 Here is the British Man With 17 Lives

Media reports are highlighting the story of a lucky man from Derby, Britain, who survived after his heart stopped and then restarted 17 times.

John Gilmartin's wife performed CPR on his heart until the paramedics arrived, who then restarted it every time it stopped by repeatedly administering electric shocks, the BBC reported.

One of the 10 doctors at the Royal Derby Hospital, who saved Gilmartin's life, said that in repeated-resuscitation cases the patient nearly always suffers neurological damage, but Gilmartin, 41, survived completely neurologically intact.

Gilmartin said that he had always been fit and well, and never had any heart problems, but was lucky to survive.
