The evidence for life after death keeps coming in and this time from a mother of four in Arizona who “died” for a total of 27 minutes according to Yahoo News.
Yahoo News reported that Tina Hines suffered a major heart attack in February 2018 when she and her husband, Brian, were getting ready to go for a hike. Brian Hines told AZFamily, “She was purple and not making any noise or breathing.” He also said that her eyes remained open, “and they were rolled back in her head.”
Thankfully he was able to resuscitate Tina before paramedics arrived but she coded multiple times on the way to the local hospital. A local Phoenix firefighter told the outlet that they ended up shocking Tina a total of five times, three times on the scene and two en route, and was quoted as saying, “I’ve never shocked anyone five times.”
Miraculously Tina woke up but because she had been intubated she couldn’t speak and immediately gestured for a pen and paper, and scribbled the words, “It’s real.” When she was asked what the note meant Tina responded by “pointing up to heaven with tears in her eyes,” according to her niece, Madie Johnson.
Madie was so impacted by this that she went and got a tattoo of the note her aunt wrote. She shared a picture of the new tattoo on Instagram writing, “Her story is too real not to share and has given me a stronger confidence in a faith that so often goes unseen.”
She went on to pay tribute to her aunt by saying, “The way you boldly love Jesus and others has changed the way I hope to live and love.”
The story got national attention when Johnson’s tattoo artist, Suede Silver, shared photos of the tattoo on Facebook, along with the story. The post has since been shared over 237,000 times and been commented on 38,000 times, some from people who have also claimed to have a near death experience, (NDE).
NDE’s began to get legitimate recognition in the medical and scientific worlds when Dr. Michael Sabom published the now landmark book ‘Recollections of Death’ in the early eighties. Sadly, it is now out of print but we highly recommend it for further reading as he investigates the NDE phenomena with scientific rigor.
