"Dad, you're not going to die today," these words were enough to bring a US man, declared dead, back to life.
Anthony Yahle was rushed to the hospital after his wife, who is a nurse by profession, found her husband's breathing irregular, ABC News reported.
At the center, doctor's surprisingly found that Yahle's arteries were clear and they expected him to survive until late in the afternoon, when Yahle's heart stopped.
Doctors tried to revive him when Yahle "coded" for 45 minutes, but eventually the cardiologist realized it was time to call the time of death.
The doc told the publication that when Yahle's heart monitor showed signs of life, the heart beat wasn't regular, but the monitor would pick up tiny electrical movements once or twice a minute.
He then decided to make a last attempt to revive Yahle and gave one of his hanging medicine bags a squeeze to restore his blood pressure and the team began working on him.
Doctors may do a heart biopsy to find out more about what happened, the report said.
