Imagine if you will; you are driving a hearse on your way to the morgue. Your recently deceased passenger, zipped up in a body bag in the back, was a wonderful 91 year old woman who’d led a full life. However, it seems she’s not finished living aforementioned full life just yet, and she’s a bit cold, so she unzips her body bag, sits up, and asks you for a spot of hot tea!
It's thought that this phenomenon is, if anything, under-reported. More people are coming back than we think. Whatever is causing the phenomenon, it's interesting that people might, for some reason, come back from the seeming dead unaided.
In something called the Lazarus Phenomenon, people actually wake from apparent death — after resuscitation attempts have been stopped.

You know, I was talking to my husband last night about just this very thing.
Prior to the advanced medicine we have today, people "woke from the dead" often enough to have vigils over the dead and what not, just in case they "came back to life"
I was wondering what they thought about those people, who were probably in coma's and thought to be dead... did the people long ago think these people were touched by God? Or as another poster mentioned... zombies... lol
I do wonder what people thought about those who woke up way back when.... it would be terribly scarey to think someone dead and have them "come back to life"...
