Courtney Santiago dies and comes back to life: 'It felt like a lifetime'/Tiktok/c_aileen26
Like mushrooms after rain, more and more people confess their near-death experiences—and things they supposedly saw in the afterlife.
Tina Haynes is one of those people. The poor woman went into cardiac arrest in February 2018 - and despite all her husband Brian's efforts to revive her, she remained motionless. On the way to the hospital, paramedics managed to revive Tina, but she repeatedly lost consciousness. They revived her 6 times when in fact 27 minutes in total she was declared dead.
However, after undergoing a cane intubation at the hospital, she eventually woke up and immediately asked for a pen and paper to write down a chilling message to her family. In barely legible handwriting, Tina wrote the words "It's real." When they asked her what was real? She just nodded upward.
"It was so real, the colors were so spectacular," Tina told AZfamily.com, "I saw a character that I think was Jesus. I know something happens after death, I'm sure of it."
Maddie Johnson, Tina's niece, tattooed her aunt's written message one by one and shared an emotional Instagram post that received more than 32,<> likes.
Here's her message - It's real
There is an explanation for this
According to studies, while most people who have had a near-death experience have no memory of when they were technically deemed dead, around 10 to 20 percent of the "resurrected dead" experience some kind of visual or sensory episode during this time. Although they may seem mystical, scientists believe they have discovered what really happens during near-death experiences.
Researchers at the University of Michigan conducted a study on several rats in 2013. According to reports, an increase in brain activity just before death is higher than in the most awake and conscious state.

Study director Dr Jimmu Borjjin, from the University of Michigan, said: "Many people thought that the brain after clinical death was inactive or underactive, with less activity than the waking state – and we show that this is definitely not the case. If anything, it is much more active during the dying process than even in the waking state."
The 9 rats were monitored while dying - and within 30 seconds after their hearts stopped beating, a spike in high-frequency brain waves was measured.
Could Tina's experience only be the result of an increase in high-frequency brain waves? We'll probably never know.
