Malaysian man came back to life two-and-a-half-hours after doctors pronounced him dead

A 65-year-old Malaysian man from Bukit Mertajam, Penang, came back to life two-and-a-half-hours after doctors pronounced him dead, in what is believed to be a rare instance of the Lazarus Syndrome, The Star newspaper reported on Friday. The man's 26-year-old son, known only as Wei, rushed his father to hospital at around 11am on Thursday, when the man stopped breathing at home. Doctors performed CPR on the man for over an hour before declaring him dead. Wei was at the police station when doctors called him at 1.30pm to say his father was breathing again. "We kept monitoring him and noticed that he suddenly began breathing after two-and-a-half hours. We then put him on a respirator," a Seberang Jaya Hospital spokeswoman said.
