Think you’re a big dog because you once drank 20 pints on a night out, or ate a plate of chicken wings doused in Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin’ Sauce? You’re nothing compared to this geezer who managed to survive a heart attack despite dying 30 times.
Yep, you read that right. Valiant Mkhitar Tariyeva, from Moscow, Russia, was rushed to hospital and into intensive care after suffering a cardiac arrest.
By the time the 55-year-old got there, he was already in a coma. For the next half-an-hour, medical officials worked tirelessly on Mkhitar, later revealing that he was considered clinically dead on a whopping 30 occasions – a potential record.
Mkhitar spoke to Russian news page Mash, describing the ordeal.
According to the Daily Star, he said:
In a dream I wanted to go somewhere but someone shook my hand and said it’s not time yet.
I consider my doctors to be like my parents because they have me a second life. This is a miracle!
You can say that again, mate. I doubt any of us could come out on the other side of something so savage. Last week, I had a few roulette Doritos and that almost coated me off!
