Woman Survives 45 Minutes With No Pulse


doctor-hospitalA Florida woman is at home and looking after her new infant less than month after she survived without a pulse for 45 minutes following complications from a routine Caesarean section.

A team of medical workers spent three hours attempting to revive 40-year-old Rudy Graupera-Cassimiro after a rare amniotic fluid embolism. Doctors were preparing to announce her death when a blip on a monitor indicated a heartbeat.
