An Australian man was clinically dead for 40 minutes, but new techniques brought him back.

Something you can call a miracle happened in Australia. News.com.au reports that 39-year-old Colin Fiedler was clinically dead for 40 minutes, but doctors managed to bring him back using two new techniques.

The Alfred hospital used a mechanical CPR that performs constant chest compressions and a heart-lung machine.

The techniques have been used so far on seven heart attack patients with success in three cases in Australia. 

The AutoPulse CPR combined with the heart-lung machine is currently still in testing, but The Alfred hospital is now working on deploying these machines and techniques in other hospitals. The AutoPulse CPR machine is already around since years. Seems the trick is to combine with the heart-lung machines to bring people back from the dead. Watch a video report below to see the AutoPulse machine in action.
