A man who was dead for 90 minutes opened up on the frightening near-death experience he suffered while trying to be revived by medics.
Alistair Blake, 61, went into cardiac arrest in the early hours of the morning in January 2019 as he slept next to his wife Melinda who found her husband "gurgling" and unresponsive in their home in Australia.
Melinda's quick thinking had her performing CPR on her husband of 35 years while she anxiously waited for the ambulance to arrive.

After attempting to revive Alistair for 20 minutes, paramedics arrived but he remained lifeless and clinically dead.
The medics worked on Alistair for over an hour, as they continued to administer CPR as well as giving him eight shocks to the chest with a defibrillator.
After 90 minutes of trying to restart Alistair's heart, a pulse was finally found.
The 61-year-old said: "Technically, I was dead for 90 minutes. I remember going to bed on the Saturday night – and the next thing I remember was waking up Thursday morning on a trolley going from ICU to coronary care.
"The human brain has totally blocked out what happened in between."
He explained: "A lot of people ask me if I saw anything, and no, I did not see anything. No bright lights, nothing like that whatsoever.
"It's a case of not knowing what's out there – but I don't mind about that, as long as I'm fit and healthy."

Alistair was then transported to Frankston Hospital where doctors were able to unclog his blocked artery.
A pacemaker was subsequently put on his heart as a precaution and Alistair was then discharged after 12 days.
He added: "You take a totally different approach to life. Reducing the number of hours I work, trying to connect more with family and friends.
"My eating habits have changed. I eat more healthily and do more exercise, if you're gonna go, you're gonna go. If it's gonna happen it's gonna happen."
