He is now being called the “miracle man” after having no pulse for 20 minutes. Only God could do this!

Michael Pruitt, a young Detroit resident was working outside when he was electrocuted leading to an untimely death. However, after 20 minutes, doctors were able to bring him back to life.

The 20-year-old was working with his father outside when a metal ladder he was carrying hit a live wire which resulted in him being electrocuted, the Detroit Free Press reported.

“I remember being electrocuted while holding that ladder and shaking, and then nothing,” Pruitt said in a news release.

The Fire and Rescue team was at the scene after four minutes. Paramedics did their best to perform CPR and defibrillation, but Pruitt died before he ever made it to the hospital.

But they didn’t lose hope.

When he arrived at the hospital, doctors continued to try and revive him with defibrillation. Then the miraculous happened – his heart started beating again!

Pruitt was revived just after two minutes at the hospital.

One of the doctors remembered saying, “You better come back” to Pruitt’s body and that’s exactly what he did.

When he did wake up, it took a number of doctors to restrain him to keep him from shaking himself out of the bed.

His mother was confident that he would be OK when he made a sarcastic gesture when she asked if he had any superpowers.

“My first-born had returned from the dead,” his mother, Jillian Pruitt said.

Miraculously, the only scars he had were burns on his big toes from the points where the electricity left his body.

He now has a tattoo over his heart of the sacred all-seeing eye of God to always remember what happened that day.
