Watching the scene about Carolyn’s accident (S6E8), I was surprised that a person could be revived after the heart had stopped for several minutes. Then, today, I saw this amazing clip about a family friend, Somerset McCarty, who suffered a cardiac arrest and was unconscious for 15 minutes before a passerby found him and did CPR. Somerset talks about his experience of dying and meeting his brother, Tennyson, who had died under puzzling circumstances in the mountains six years ago.
Somerset (center) and Bart McCoy, who saved his life, are interviewed in this news clip. It’s a beautiful gift for the holidays. Enjoy.
