Doctors: Ohio man revives 45 minutes after heart stopped and he was declared dead

WEST CARROLLTON, Ohio — Southwest Ohio doctors say they’re stunned by a man who revived 45 minutes after his heart stopped beating and he was declared dead.

Doctors say presumed-dead diesel mechanic Tony Yahle was being prepared by nurses to be seen by his family when he began to show signs of life. They say he fully awoke at the hospital five days later.

The 37-year-old West Carrollton resident’s cardiologist, Dr. Raja Nazir, says he’s been a topic of discussion among doctors.

The Dayton Daily News on Tuesday reported teenager Lawrence Yahle says he spoke to his father as he lay dead and told him he wasn’t going to die that day.

The teen says his father revived shortly after. He says he “went from hopeless to hope in an instant.”

Tony Yahle says “nobody really has an explanation.”
