"If you're going to use the term 'miraculous,' I guess it could be used here." -Cardiologist, Dr. Andrew Deaner
(United Kingdom)—Ever since his heart stopped a full 78 minutes during a match against Tottenham Hotspur in March, soccer player Fabrice Muamba has been in making news in the U.K. with his miraculous survival story.
An ESPN report had quoted Muamba's team doctor, Jonathan Tobin, as saying, "They were working on him without his heart having a muscular beat. In effect, he was dead in that time."
Cardiologist, Dr. Andrew Deaner, said, "If you're going to use the term 'miraculous,' I guess it could be used here."
According to an Inspire News report, while Muamba was in the hospital, a young African cleaner came into his room every day to pray silently in the corner, and when Muamba finally woke up from his coma he found his family around his bed praying and reading psalms.
"They were praying so loud," joked Muamba, "No one could sleep through that."
"Trust me," he said, "I take every day as a blessing. They said I should be brain dead. I asked the [doctor], 'Doc, tell me the truth.' He told me, 'Listen, I'm not going to lie, you should be brain damaged. You should be dead. A month ago I thought you were finished.'"
Muamba is on the record as crediting prayer and his great doctor and medical team for his progress.
