US doctors say they're stunned by a man who regained consciousness 45 minutes after his heart stopped beating and he was declared dead.

Doctors say presumed-dead diesel mechanic Tony Yahle was being prepared by nurses to be seen by his family when he began to show signs of life. They say he miraculously woke up fully at the hospital five days later.

The 37-year-old Ohio resident's cardiologist, Dr. Raja Nazir, says he's been a topic of discussion among doctors.

The Dayton Daily News on Tuesday reported teenager Lawrence Yahle say he spoke to his father as he lay dead and told him he wasn't going to die that day.
The teen says his father revived shortly after.

He adds his father "went from hopeless to hope in an instant."
