A fourteen year old teenager from St. Charles, Missouri, came back to life after being pronounced dead for more than 45 minutes. According to the doctors, the boy was revived after his mother started praying for him in a loud voice.
The health officials said that the boy fell through the ice of Lake St. Louise and was underwater for more than 15 minutes.
The doctors who was in charge of the boy, Dr. Kent Sutterer, said that the boy had been dead for approximately 45 minutes after the accident. His mother then walked into the hospital room, started praying for her son and his heart started working again.
Dr. Sutterer said that the boy’s heart started pumping again because the Holy Spirit listened to the prayers of the boy’s mother.
The 14 year old teenager was with two friends when they fell through the ice of Lake Sainte Louise, on Martin Luther King Jr. day, January 19.
Chris Fay, the Fire Chief of St Louis, said that by the time the team of firefighters arrived at the lake, one of the boys was close to the shore, another boy was on the ice, while John, the 14 year old boy, was in the lake.
When asked about the accident, John said that he doesn’t remember too much, but he remembers the tubes at the hospital.
John said that he is very thankful to God for bringing him back to life and that he is going to live his life following God’s way.
Dr. Jeremy Garrett, who witnessed the boy’s case, believes that this is indeed some sort of divine miracle that the boy was revived.
Dr. Garrett explained that he watched the way the boy’s body reacted after being in the extremely cold water for such a long time. The doctor adds that John’s circulatory system went into shock and there was acid built up in the boy’s bloodstream.
When asked about John’s current health condition, Dr. Garrett said that the boy is still coughing and is currently undergoing physical therapy to help him regain some of the movement is his hands.
