A mum who ‘died’ for 27 seven minutes came back to life asking for a pen and paper.
Tina Hines, who could barely speak, reached out for the notebook and immediately scribbled down a message: ‘It’s real’.
She claims she saw heaven after her cardiac arrest, and when her loved ones asked her what the note referred to, she just nodded upwards.
Tina went into cardiac arrest before going on a hike in Phoenix, Arizona, with her husband, Brian, last February.
The mum-of-four was revived but went unconscious again before paramedics arrived.
In total, she had to be resuscitated six times before getting to hospital.
For 27 minutes in total, she was effectively dead, her family told AZ Family.
Describing what she saw, Tina said: ‘It was so real, the colors were so vibrant.’
She said she was able to see a figure she believes was Jesus standing in front of black gates, with a bright yellow light glowing behind.

(sharing because this story is too cool not to share) 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 to 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 cousins 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 @_tinahines! The way you boldly love Jesus and others has changed the way I hope to live and love❤️
