MICHIGAN (CNN) — A Michigan man was brought back to life after being dead for 20 minutes.
He went back to the hospital to visit the doctors who saved him.
20-year-old Michael Pruitt was carrying a metal ladder when it touched a live electrical wire at a job site.
His heart quit beating, and he was kept alive by CPR before he was rushed to a hospital.
Pruitt’s heart was restarted after a couple shocks with a defibrillator.
One of the doctors who treated him described the moments his heart started beating again.
“All of a sudden he’s just, you know, pulling in his tubes and, you know, we saw all his limbs moving, which was really a good sign for us.”
Doctors say Pruitt didn’t lose any brain function.
His main injuries are on his big toes — they were burned internally as the high-voltage electricity exited his body.
