A few authors have discussed “auto-PEEP” as a possible mechanism to explain SROC. During CPR, dynamic hyperinflation may develop in a patient with obstructive airway disease because of hyperventilation and inadequate exhalation time. Cessation of ventilation relieves the hyperinflation and the excessive intrathoracic pressure, thus allowing cardiac filling and permitting the spontaneous return of cardiac function
Judith Johnson, 61, of Georgetown, Del., was actually having a heart attack when she arrived at the hospital in May 2007. Less than 45 minutes after she arrived, she went into cardiac arrest. records also say she "never regained a pulse," and was declared dead at 8:34 p.m. someone at the morgue noticed Johnson’s “corpse” was still breathing, Louis Johnson learned his wife was very much alive.
Mr Wilkinson was pronounced dead by staff at the Royal Preston Hospital on February 1. But 30 minutes after he was given the Last Rites doctors realised that his pulse had returned. He survived for two days before being pronounced dead a second time.
Carlos Camejo, 33, was declared dead after a highway accident and taken to the morgue, where examiners began an autopsy only to realize something was amiss when he started bleeding. They quickly sought to stitch up the incision on his face.
Many designs included ropes which, when pulled, would ring the church bell, or a purpose-mounted bell.

I can understand why somebody might think that but this is literally when a person i dead, no pulse, no brain activity they are dead. Confirmed by doctors and surgeons, its now recognised in the medical community.
It's really too bad these anecdotes don't have interviews with the formerly dead persons. My guess is there would be som every strange tales out of them.
