Oct 21 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Sixty year old Lydia Paillard visited a clinic on Bordeaux, which is located in the South-West of France, to undergo a chemotherapy session. After she was given the pills, and administered the IV drip which is a part of the treatment, she became unconscious and was soon pronounced dead.

She was placed on life support, where she remained for fourteen hours. At that point, according to Dr Yves Noel, who is the director of the Bordeaux Polyclinique,“‘Our most experienced doctors all examined her and pronounced her clinically dead.”

Her son, Serge Paillard was asked a very difficult question. “At the hospital a doctor told me I had to decide whether the machine should be turned off. It was a dreadful thing to be asked,” he shared with The Daily Mail.

But what happened next shocked the doctors, and delighted her family. Mrs Paillard sat straight up in bed, Her doctor stated, ‘We were at the bedside later when she suddenly opened her eyes, sat up and said “I feel so much better. I’ve had a lovely sleep”.’

Her son pronounced, “Of course the family is delighted she is alive but we need a full explanation of how this could have happened.”

Dr Yves explains that it is possible that the patient had an epileptic seizure, which could have given her the “appearance of death.” He went on to say, “It is an extremely rare event.”
