Teen comes back from the dead after her heart stopped for 45min

Teen comes back from the dead after her heart stopped for 45min

In the pink of health now: Cherie Lim (in red) with Dr Su Jang Wen. The latter used a heart-lung machine called the Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenator, or ECMO, when Cherie's heart stopped for 45 minutes and she fell into a coma. SHE WAS rushed to the hospital after suffering from a severe and rare inflammation of the heart muscle which caused her heart to stop for 45 minutes. She fell into a coma, but fortunately, the secondary four student Cherie Lim recovered and found a new lease of life. The top student, who just turned 16, now feels that "life is not all about studies". More in The New Paper on Tuesday (July 19).
