An Arizona woman had to be revived eight times and was technically dead for 27 minutes before she woke up. But she seemed to have made quite the trip in that period.
Tina Hines, from Phoenix, Arizona, is a mother of four who was all ready to join her husband, Brian for a hike in February 2018. Suddenly, she had a cardiac arrest that caused her to collapse. Brian gave her CPR and was able to resuscitate her twice before handing her off to the paramedics once they arrived.
Hines was resuscitated six times – four by her husband with CPR and two more times at the hospital with a defibrillator.
In total, Tina was considered dead for 27 minutes. When she was brought back for good, she wasn’t able to talk because she had a tube in her throat, but she immediately signaled to her family to give her a pen. When they did, she wrote a haunting message to them: “It’s real.” They asked her what she meant and, with tears in her eyes, she pointed to the sky, clearly meaning heaven.
According to medical science, most people don’t survive after five to ten minutes without oxygen going to someone’s brain. And if they do survive, it would leave brain injuries that could result in a brain handicap.
Meanwhile, prayers continued to pour in outside the waiting room of the ICU. Then the next day, Tina’s vital signs went back to normal. The doctor took off her ventilator and she was finally breathing on her own.
Although the experience changed Tina Hines’s life forever back in 2018, her niece Madie Johnson recently shared an image of a new tattoo that she got to remind her about the experience of the afterlife and what her aunt saw while she was visiting it.
After surviving the ordeal, Tina testified to her powerful face-to-face encounter with Jesus while in a coma.
“I just wanted to share that I saw Jesus face to face,” Tina recounted. “The unbelievable rest and peacefulness of what I was experience, was Jesus standing there with His arms open wide. And right behind, Jesus standing there was incredible glow. The most vibrant and beautiful yellow.”
“Her story is too real not to share and has given me stronger confidence in a faith that so often goes unseen,” Johnson wrote.
Here’s what Johnson wrote on Instagram:
“A little over a year ago my Aunt Tina, one of the most amazing, discerning, and healthy people I know had an unexpected cardiac arrest and according to doctors had died and was brought back to life four times by my Uncle Brian and first responders before arriving at the hospital. She was put on a defibrillator and after miraculously waking up the first thing she did, unable to speak because she was intubated, was ask for a pen and in my cousin’s journal wrote ‘it’s real.’ The people in the room asked ‘what’s real?’ and she responded by pointing up to heaven with tears in her eyes.”
“Her story is too real not to share and has given me a stronger confidence in a faith that so often goes unseen. It has given me a tangibleness to an eternal hope that is not too far away. I love you (Tina Hines). The way you boldly love Jesus and others has changed the way I hope to live and love.”
Research states that Tina’s near-death experience (NDE) is actually quite common. While most people don’t recall that period of time when they were medically dead, nearly 10-20% of people describe certain visual or sensory episodes during the time.
