Perfect Duluth Day | Duluth News Events Music and More

More specifically he mentions the miraculous case of Janice Goodger

There was a 65-year-old woman in Duluth, Minnesota last year that was found frozen and without a pulse in her front yard one morning in the winter, and they brought her back to life. The next day, she was doing so well, they wanted to run tests on her. She got cranky and just went home.

  3. While the medical maxim is true, frozen cellular tissue crystalizes, and bursts when thawed. Bad for brains.

  4. While ice fishing as a kid, I noticed fish who were frozen solid after caught and sitting on the surface of the ice, could also thaw out and come back to life.
