Woman who ‘died’ for 27 minutes writes chilling note after she’s resuscitated

An Arizona woman who “died” for 27 minutes asked for a notepad after she was resuscitated to share an urgent message about the afterlife, her family claims. Madie Johnson took to Instagram to share photos of her new tattoo, modeled off a note written by her aunt, Tina Hines, who suffered a massive heart attack in 2018. Hines, from Phoenix, was getting ready to go for a hike with her husband, Brian, when she suddenly collapsed. “Her eyes didn’t close, and they were rolled back in her head. She was purple and not making any noise or breathing,” Brian Hines told AZFamily at the time. Hines’s husband was successfully able to resuscitate his wife before paramedics arrived, but she coded multiple times and had to be intubated. Miraculously, the mom of four woke up and immediately gestured for a pen and piece of paper, with which she scribbled down, “It’s real” . When asked what her note referenced, Hines responded by “pointing up to heaven with tears in her eyes,” according to her niece. “It was so real, the colors were so vibrant,” Hines recalled of her vision, which she said included Jesus standing in front of black gates with a bright yellow glow behind him. Johnson said she wanted the tattoo as a permanent reminder of her aunt’s journey, which has given her a “tangibleness to an eternal hope that is not too far away”
