Man Technically Dies In The ER, Wakes Up Crying With Nurse

Sean Collins sent me and incredible story about Michael Knapinski.

Michael is quite the adventurer, and last weekend, was hiking in Mount Rainier national park (in freezing conditions, by the way), and got LOST!

45 minutes passed before he was found, and that might not seem like a lot of time, but in those conditions that’s enough for the body to start shutting down.

The doctor said he actually died while in the ER.

Thankfully, due to the hard work of a very educated staff, Michael woke up 2 days later. I guess it just wasn’t his time.

One of his nurses said, “He was crying and I cried a little bit, it was just really special to see someone that we had worked so hard on from start to finish wake up that dramatically and impressively.”
