You are about to read an amazing and emotional story. It may sound weird, but it is true.
Zack Clements was a 17-year old boy who played football at Victory Life Academy in Brownwood, Texas. He was running in his Physical Education class when he suddenly collapsed. He was taken to the hospital because his heart had stopped. There, doctors did everything they could to bring the boy back to life, but it was impossible.
Zack was declared dead for 20 minutes before he was revived. During those 20 minutes, the boy says a man with thick beard visit him and put his hand on his shoulder, telling him “Everything will be alright”.
The man had long ruffled hair and a thick beard. Zack realized the man was Jesus.
Heart attack is not the same as cardiac arrest (SCA), which is what Zack experienced. Heart attack occurs when blood flows to part of the heart muscle that is blocked. Then the heart usually does not stop beating.
SCA happens when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. Then the blood stops flowing to the brain and other vital organs.
This can occur in people who are healthy and have no heart disease or other risk factors for sudden cardiac arrest.
It is the number one killer of teen and youth athletes during sports. Also, experts say that most deaths caused by sudden cardiac arrest are in older adults.
