A woman who was clinically dead for at least 42 minutes revived after Australian doctors treated her with a hi-tech machine that kept blood flowing to her brain

The miracle patient was rushed to hospital after she suffered a major heart attack, but was declared clinically dead soon after arrival, News.com.au reported.

Doctors at Melbourne’s MonashHeart managed to unblock vital arteries and return her heart to a normal rhythm, with the help of a lifesaving piece of equipment, called LUCAS 2.

According to doctors, Vanessa Tanasio, 41, a mother of two from the suburb of Narre Warren, needed numerous defibrillator shocks, including one in the ambulance on her way to hospital.
