She was dead lucky to survive this medical drama.
A Wisconsin woman says she died from heatstroke only to be revived three minutes after her heart stopped beating.
Jade — who has not disclosed her last name — took to TikTok to share details of her incredible experience, saying “everything went black.”
The content creator claims the episode occurred during the summer of 2011 as she struggled with the “unbearable” humidity in her home city of Green Bay.
“Everything must have happened in a matter of moments, but it felt like much longer and this profound feeling of utter sickness hit me like a tonne of bricks,” the now 36-year-old told Jam Press after her TikTok video went viral.
“My head felt like it was inflating, yet my entire body as if it was shrinking,” she continued, claiming she collapsed on a friend’s couch. “Then, everything went black and that was the moment I knew I was about to pass away.”
Friends quickly called an ambulance and Jade was rushed to a local hospital where she was revived via a defibrillator.
Doctors declared that her heart had stopped beating for three minutes before she was miraculously brought back to life.
Jade suffers from Wolff-Parkinson-White and postural tachycardia syndrome, both of which cause abnormalities with increased heart rate. Often, she feels like she’s going to “throw up” her heart and can experience severe shaking and fainting spells.
She believes the sweltering summer weather made her conditions worse, ultimately bringing about the deadly heatstroke.
While Jade only saw “black” during her three minutes of death, she says she has since experienced “strange anomalies” that make her believe in an afterlife.
Since the 2011 episode, Jade says regular watches stop working as soon as she puts them on. She also claims that vape pens shut down even with a full battery.
“I’ve also had a lot of other spooky things happening, such as hearing voices and seeing things that aren’t there,” the content creator continued. “Sometimes it’s been whispers or dark hazy figures and I began recording my home because I was petrified that I was losing it. But [ultimately ] I believe this is telling me that life continues after death.”
Thus, the 2011 experience has made Jade less afraid of her eventual death.
“I had experienced an extreme fear of dying prior to this incident, but when it actually happened, I had zero fear,” she explained. “I don’t live in fear of death and I know that when my time comes, any fear will melt away like it did before.”
“The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that it is absolutely true what they say – the fear itself is always worse than the thing we actually fear.”
