Hiker’s heart restarted five times, when her eyes open she tells everyone she’s seen heaven: ‘It’s real.’

Tina Hines worked hard to stay healthy: she worked out regularly and ate a healthy diet, like so many of us do because we want to live long and healthy lives.

So what happened on a hike in Phoenix Arizona not only left everybody shocked and confused but is a worrying incident for all of us who thought we were strong and healthy.


Tina and her husband Brian Hines went out on an early spring hike when suddenly Tina collapsed and her heart stopped beating.

“Her eyes didn’t close, and they were rolled back in her head,” Brian said. “She was purple and not making any noise or breathing.”

Brian brought his wife back to life with CPR, but her heart soon stopped again. Paramedics arrived on the scene and immediately resuscitated her.

Her heart stopped beating three more times, and when she was brought back the fifth time, she said that she saw heaven.

“It was so real, the colors were so vibrant,” Tina said. According to AZ Family, she saw black gates and Jesus standing in front of them.

When she finally came to in John C Lincoln Deer Valley Hospital, she wrote on a piece of paper, “It’s real.”

Tina is now on a defibrillator and pacemaker that will help keep her heart functioning as it should. Less than 10 percent of people survive Sudden Cardiac Arrest and 450,000 people pass away from it every year, according to her Facebook post.

She wrote: “Bottom line, God did this amazing miracle and truly every day improving and feeling incredibly, amazingly strong, rested in Him and thrilled knowing I am improving daily!!”

This is a truly inspirational story and a miracle that Tina survived it all! Please share this if you agree.
