In a Rare Case of the Lazarus Syndrome, a Woman is Declared Dead Twice

“The man who had been dead came out with his hands and feet bound in strips of linen, and his face wrapped in a headcloth.”
John 11:44

That biblical passage comes from the story of Lazarus, who was brought back to life after being declared dead and buried four days before. Lazarus thus lent his name to any circumstance involving a person being brought back to life after being declared dead by a doctor or another person who knows the signs of death. While it’s popular in movie plots and novels, the so-called Lazarus Syndrome is extremely rare – only 37 cases have been verified worldwide since 1982.

Make that 38.

The Raising of Lazarus

“The patient was certified dead at 10.30pm in GMSH.”

Dr. Dasari Harish, head of the forensic medicine department at the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH)-32, told the Times of India that the case was discussed at a recent conference. Doctors at the Government Multispecialty Hospital (GMSH)-16 in Chandigarh (a city and a union territory in northern India) declared a 45-year-old female patient dead due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease – an inflammatory lung condition that obstructs breathing. Dr. Harish says the doctors followed proper protocols when determining the time of death at 10.30 pm and placed what they thought was a corpse in an ambulance three hours later to be transported to the home of her relatives for the funeral. However, “signs of vitality were noticed by the relatives while transporting her body,” said Harish.

Uh-oh.

“They immediately unpacked her and brought to our hospital at 5:58 am. We were not even informed that she had already been declared dead by the previous hospital. After resuscitation and treatment, she was declared dead at 7:30 am in GMCH.”

As Dr. Harish pointed out, the woman had been declared officially dead by other doctors following proper protocols. Yes, doctors have been known to close ranks when controversy occurs, but the Lazarus Syndrome muddies the saline solution here. According to a US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health report, the Lazarus syndrome or Lazarus heart or ‘autoresuscitation after failed cardiopulmonary resuscitation’, is the “the unassisted return of spontaneous circulation after cardiac arrest.” There is some thought that the heart could be stopped by pressure built up during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the heart may start beating again after the pressure is relieved. According to the Emergency Medicine Journal, it may also occur due to high doses or adrenaline (epinephrine) or the recreational ingestion of high doses of heroin and ecstasy. It doesn’t appear that any of these were the case with the poor woman in India. So, what caused this 38th case of the Lazarus Syndrome?

“We found it evidently as the first case of Lazarus phenomena from India. There are no certain reasons, but it is believed that some lifesaving drugs giving for resuscitation have a prolonged effect and perhaps rarely some patients can again come back to life and die again within 2-3 hours.”

Needless to say, that ambulance will have plenty of lawyers chasing it from now on.

Brandao claims that he never resorted to the help of plastic surgeons, and his appearance is the result of a healthy lifestyle.

He adheres to a special diet: he does not eat fried and canned food, and also avoids sugar.

The man combines all this with strength training. He prefers mineral water from drinks, drinking about two liters daily.

Brandao also stresses that he has never smoked or used drugs in his life.

“Now I feel no worse than when I was not even 30,” he says. – I feel the same energy as before. To be honest, I’ve never felt so good.” he says.

A creepy video with a skeleton girl running on all fours leaked on the web

A video appeared on the Internet, which should be a fragment of some horror movie, definitely not something that you would like to face on a dark night, but no, this is an ordinary video filmed with a street surveillance camera. At night, the camera recorded a skinny girl running around her house on all fours.

The video was published a few weeks ago. It was named “Dog Girl from Tamaulispas”. As the title suggests, the video was recorded in Mexico. In a couple of weeks, the video managed to spread throughout the Internet.

The video shows a pale and emaciated creature. If you look even closer, you can see a girl moving on all fours. A mentally unhealthy resident of Mexico is moving very dexterously and at high speed.

Some people wrote in the comments that the impression was that the cameras were recording a humanoid. Other citizens noted that the girl actually has Uner Tan syndrome. With this disease, a person is not able to walk on two legs.

It is worth noting that this girl was spotted back in 2009. Then the not indifferent found out that the girl-dog lives with her mother in the Ampliación Unidad Nacional area. A woman hides her daughter from neighbors and even more so from the media. This behavior is quite understandable: the mother does not want her daughter to be mocked and become a victim of cruel ridicule.

The syndrome doesn’t explain why the girl is so skinny and completely naked in the video. It is also worth noting that no one with a similar disease moves on four limbs skillfully frighteningly, as if it were not a person. Today the girl is 25 years old, there is no information about her for obvious reasons. It is only known that cameras are specially placed in case the girl escapes.

Most people were shocked by the footage, they compared it to a horror movie, only a real one.

Many commentators point out that for humans, the creature in the video moves so unnatural and frightening that it all looks more like a high-quality fake.

“It’s like shots from a horror movie,” writes one commentator bluntly. 

“I can’t even imagine how scared I would be if I walked there at night and saw her,” writes another.

The strange phenomenon of the “wire woman”

Image: Iron Wire Sculpture by Mattia Trotta

In 2008, an amazing and mysterious incident attracted the attention of the whole world. A woman named Noor Saida, 40, who was born in Sangatta, East Kalimantan, Indonesia, went to doctors complaining that she had metallic hair growing on her chest and abdomen.

It is very painful when the stubble is about to come out of the pores, ”Nursyaida said in his medical examination.

The kindergarten teacher explained that her first symptoms began to appear in 1991. Painful metal wires emerged from the skin, fell out in the first week, and after a month the wires began to grow again, and from that moment on the wires did not fall out again. They kept growing!

One of her sisters said she tried to help by cutting the wire. Unfortunately, whenever she trimmed the metal bristles, the remnants of the iron hair would go inward and then reappear on another part of Nursayda’s body.

A metal wire 10 to 20 cm long growing from inside a woman’s body is still a mystery! During a medical examination, doctors discovered that wires were also present inside the woman’s abdomen.

On X-rays, doctors found that there were more than 40 metal wires inside, and some were coming out of her skin. 

It looks like a living phenomenon, the wires were able to move and therefore, they can change their location at will, the doctors said.

Doctors believed it could be a very rare genetic or mental illness.

As a result, this case remained a mystery and the doctors did not find a logical explanation for it, none of the presented symptoms is known in the medical literature.
