katie John died on May 14, 2012.
Katie John collapsed in her kitchen one year ago from cardiac arrest. For an estimated six to eight minutes, she was clinically dead, with no oxygen getting to her brain.
Miraculously, paramedics got her heartbeat to return while performing CPR. At the hospital, doctors brought her back to health without any lingering complications.
There is no brain damage and Katie John is still functioning normally. All she has from the ordeal are a small scar below her shoulder blade where a pacemaker was implanted, and two weeks of missing memories.
