French woman 'woke up from the dead'

A French woman pronounced “very certainly clinically dead” woke up 14 hours later to declare: “I had a wonderful sleep.”

Doctors had asked the family of Lydia Paillard (60) to consider switching off her life support, but they had delayed.

Mrs Paillard walked into a clinic in Bordeaux for chemotherapy, but fell into a coma. “We were told that she wouldn't come back,” said her son.

She was transferred and staff noticed signs of brain activity.

Mrs Paillard said: 'All I remember is that I felt unwell after receiving an injection to prevent me vomiting,' adding that she felt 'more tired than usual' after her ordeal.
