Although Memorial Day is really about those who have served our country, I was quite intrigued by this story of a woman's near-death experience:
"A West Virginia woman is at the Cleveland Clinic after walking the line between life and death...[she] suffered two heart attacks and had no brain waves for more than 17 hours. At about 1:30 a.m. Saturday, her heart stopped and she had no pulse. A respiratory machine kept her breathing and rigor mortis had set in..."
By all accounts, and by current medical definition, Val Thomas was dead. But as her family met with doctors to discuss organ transplant harvesting, she "woke up and started talking."
There's video, as well:

She's currently at the Cleveland Clinic for observation.
