Unbelievable Story of Ohio Dad Who Came ‘Back From the Dead’ After Son Says: ‘You’re Not Going to Die Today’
August 22, 2013 By Erica Ritz


A 37-year-old Ohio man has stunned medical professionals after “coming back from the dead” — and he says “nobody but God” could’ve pulled it off.

It all began on August 5 when Anthony Yahle’s wife, Melissa, called 911 around 4 a.m. when she noticed irregularities in her husband’s breathing and was unable to wake him up.

More on the incredible story

ABC News reports that Melissa — who is a nurse – and the couple’s 17-year-old son, Lawrence, performed CPR until an ambulance could arrive.

Though paramedics were able to find a heartbeat and things originally seemed like they would turn out alright, Anthony’s heart stopped at the hospital and doctors were unable to revive him.

After roughly 45 minutes, cardiologist Dr. Raja Nazir reportedly said it was time to call the time of death.

But Anthony’s son, Lawrence, refused to give up hope.

Wearing a cross necklace and speaking clearly on CNN, the young hero explained that something just didn’t feel “right” about the situation.

“[My dad is] 37-years-old, he’s never had a heart problem. He’s not dead in that room,” Lawrence recalled thinking.

Lawrence said he went back to where his father was and started praying with his pastor, Paul.

“Something came in me and got me to point at him, and I said, ‘Dad you’re not going to die today.”‘

“I stood there for a few more moments, and I started walking back to the counseling room to comfort my sisters and my mom,” Lawrence continued. “[I] took about three steps and my pastor, Paul, he looked and me and said, ‘Lawrence! Lawrence!’”

The boy’s father had begun showing signs of life and, unbelievably, doctors were able to resuscitate him.

Cardiologist Dr. Raja Nazir commented: “In the last 20 years, I’ve never seen anybody we have pronounced dead … and then for him to come back, I’ve never seen it. Actually, I’ve never heard of it.”

Nazir and Anthony are both calling it a “miracle.”

“There’s nobody but God that could have done this,” Anthony said simply. “The doctors had all given up — I mean, rightfully so. It had been so long. But for me to wake up without any brain damage or anything like that is another part of a miracle…to be, you know, without oxygen for 45 minutes, that’s huge.”

“It definitely strengthened my faith, my family’s faith, everybody I know’s faith,” he said. “If it strengthens everybody’s faith, I’ll take the lumps for it.”

Anthony says he has no memory of the event, however, and no afterlife recollections.

“I went to bed … woke up five days later in the hospital,” he remarked. “Nobody really has an explanation for it — medically anyway.”

VIDEO Dad, You’re My Hero – Tribute from a daughter to her father

This music video “Dad, ‘You’re My Hero” is a tribute from a daughter to her father, sung by Teresa James.

LYRICS – “YOU’RE MY HERO”

I WOULD RIDE ON YOUR SHOULDER
AND LOOK OUT ON THE WORLD
PRETENDING I WAS BIG AND TALL LIKE YOU
WHEN YOU WERE THERE TO HOLD ME
I NEVER WAS AFRAID
YOU MADE ME FEEL THERE’S NOTHING I CAN’T DO

IF I’D SPREAD MY WINGS TO FLY
WHEN I WAS VERY SMALL I KNEW THAT YOU’D BE STANDING BY TO CATCH ME IF I FALL

CHORUS:

YOU’RE MY HERO
CHASING THE MONSTERS FROM MY ROOM
GOING ON TRIPS AROUND THE MOON
THE ONE WHO’S ALWAYS BEEN THERE FAITHFULLY

YOU’RE MY HERO
AND ‘CAUSE YOU’RE MY DAD
I’M TWICE AS BLESSED AND LUCKY TO BE ME

AS I KEPT ON GETTING OLDER WE OFTEN DISAGREED
BUT YOU LET ME FIND MYSELF IN MY OWN WAY
AND ITS FUNNY, HOW JUST LATELY
I’VE COME TO RECOGNIZE
HOW WISE YOU ARE BECOMING EVERYDAY
THERE’S SO MUCH YOU’VE GIVEN ME
I HOPE I’VE MADE YOU PROUD
YOU’RE EVERYTHING A DAD SHOULD BE
AND ITS TIME TO TELL YOU NOW.

YOU’RE MY HERO
YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO SAY A WORD
YOUR LOVE WAS THE MESSAGE THAT I HEARD
INSPIRING ME TO BE ALL I CAN BE

YOU’RE MY HERO AND CAUSE YOU’RE MY DAD….
I’M TWICE AS BLESSED AND LUCKY TO BE ME…

Father’s Day, a Dad

touch and love of a father

What can a father leave his children that will last? A spiritual legacy:

1. A Dad of Prayer.
2. A Dad of Purpose.
3. A Dad of Patience.
4. A Dad of Play.
5. A Dad of Praise.

It has been said over and over that a positive and continuous relationship between the father and child is associated with high self-esteem, more self-confidence in personal and social interaction, better morals, greater career aspirations and life goals, and reduced rates of unwed teen pregnancy.

Fathers who are affectionate, nurturing and actively involved in raising their children are more likely to have well-adjusted kids. An active father is there in good times and bad. From him, his children learn how to handle difficulty, anger, disappointment and success. He’s the foundation.

Luke 6:46-49 records the words of Jesus, “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice. He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock.

“When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”

Being a dad isn’t an easy job. As a matter of fact, it’s tough, demanding and requires all kinds of courage. Dads have a single challenge to be brave and strong for their families. First Corinthians 16:13 tells us to “watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong.”

Dads who rock build their lives upon the Rock of ages — the Lord Jesus Christ. And they construct their families upon foundations of faith established in Jesus Christ. Proverbs 14:26 says, “In the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence, and His children will have a place of refuge.”

Your home should be the place where you can stand firm and not be shaken. Difficult days in our culture are among us. Satan is trying hard to hammer our kids, and while we can’t stop the fire from spreading, we can stop it at our doorsteps. It starts by making your home a place of refuge.

Believe it — all of our families WILL be tested. I don’t know what storm you may be facing now or what fire will sweep through your family in the future, but I know that you will be able to stand firm and strong when you are built solidly on Jesus Christ. Dads who build the foundation of their family on Jesus do more than just attend church when it’s convenient, but they actually listen and apply God’s Word in their personal and homes lives.

Joshua was a dad who rocked. In the Bible, it was he who said, “And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

There are three simple building materials you need when building a foundation and future that will last for your family:

• LOVE. Embrace and show affection to your wife and children; give them encouragement through showing affirmation and acceptance, and spend quality time with your family.

• ENCOURAGE. Build up rather than tear down; equip them with God’s Word and wisdom from your own life.

• BELIEVE. Build your family upon the Rock — Jesus Christ (see Proverbs 22:6); the most important thing your children can take with them into the world is faith in Jesus Christ.

Fathers, build your house, your life and your family upon the solid foundation of Jesus Christ and God’s Word with love, faith, and joy and your children will be unshakable. Dads that rock for Jesus Christ will produce an everlasting life change in their families and futures.
