Woman Who 'Died' For 27 Minutes Survives, Then Scribbles 'It's Real' On Seeing Heaven

Woman Who 'Died' For 27 Minutes Survives, Then Scribbles 'It's Real' On Seeing Heaven

After Tina Hines was resuscitated, she claimed to have seen black gates and Jesus standing in front of them, with a bright yellow halo behind him.

There is a lot of unanswered questions when it comes to life after death. A lot of people claim to have experienced it, while others claim it is all a farce. We're probably never going to know what exists beyond life and death, but we have experiences from people who have 'died' and 'come back to life'. A woman from Arizona wrote a rather creepy note after she 'died' and survived. The woman flatlined for about 27 minutes, and in that time she claims she went to heaven, before being resuscitated. According to AZ Family, Tina Hines says that she saw heaven when she died for almost half an hour.



After she was resuscitated, her first instinct was to write down "It's Real". "It was so real, the colors were so vibrant," Hines told the publication. She says she saw black gates and Jesus standing in front of them, with a bright yellow halo behind him. The incident took place when Hines and her husband were headed for a hike one fine spring morning when she suddenly dropped to the floor. "Her eyes didn’t close, and they were rolled back in her head. She was purple and not making any noise or breathing," her husband, Brian Hines said.


Before the incident, Hines led a rather healthy life as she was quite active. She worked out regularly and ate healthy food. Brian said that when his wife's heart stopped beating, it just did not make sense. He was quick to react and managed to revive her using CPR. But unfortunately, she went into cardiac arrest again. Paramedics arrived and brought her back to life, only to watch her heart stop again. She had to be resuscitated a total of five times during which time she says she saw heaven. When the paramedics finally managed to bring her back to life, she motioned for a notepad and scribbled "It's real" on it in almost illegible handwriting, and pointed to the sky.



"We ended up shocking her three times on scene and two en route," said one Phoenix firefighter. "I’ve never shocked anyone five times." A few weeks later, Hines was discharged from the hospital and tearfully thanked the 911 operator, firefighters, and paramedics who helped save her life. "It’s one of those calls that none of us will ever forget," said another rescuer. "I was a witness to a miracle is the way I look at it." She now lives with a defibrillator and pacemaker to prevent future heart failure. But, the question here is: Did Tina Hines actually see heaven? There have been numerous similar claims but there are also extensive studies that have an explanation for the same.



Dr. Jimo Borjigin, of the University of Michigan, who headed one such study told BBC, "A lot of people thought that the brain after clinical death was inactive or hypoactive, with less activity than the waking state, and we show that is definitely not the case. If anything, it is much more active during the dying process than even the waking state." This is referred to as the brain's "last hurrah", according to Dr. Jason Braithwaite, of the University of Birmingham, who said, "This is a very neat demonstration of an idea that's been around for a long time: that under certain unfamiliar and confusing circumstances - like near-death - the brain becomes overstimulated and hyperexcited."
