There have been many stories on people coming back to life. Most of them take the form of movies or fictional tales.
However, in extremely rare circumstances this has happened in the real world too. That is the case with Jean Hilliard.
In 1980, Jean Hilliard froze at a subzero temperature. This caused no response from her body which convinced medical practitioners of that time that she was dead.
But within 6 hours, Ms. Jean began to show signs that she was still alive. This motivated the doctors to put in more effort and eventually, she regained her health.
The entire incident is very interesting to recall. Here is what happened.
How Jean Hilliard Froze Solid
Jean Hilliard was a regular 19-year old girl living in the town of Lengby, Minnesota. Lengby was a very small town during that time and housed a total population of 87.
Hence, people were scarce in the neighborhood. Apart from this, the town was surrounded by natural landscapes like lakes, forests, and farmland. During winter, all of these naturally freeze.
The town of Lengby hosted the Fosston American Legion. This location was known to be the coolest place to hang out in the town.
This was especially popular for the people that were Hilliard’s age. It was the ultimate go-to spot for the Lengby youth.
On December 20, 1980, Hilliard decided to meet up with her friends and drove her dad’s car towards the location.
The car was a Ford LTD with an absence of anti-lock brakes and a rear-wheel drive. A vehicle like this is specifically difficult to drive on a frozen road.
When Hilliard left the hang out near midnight, the temperature was -22 degrees. Along with the confusing landscape with the slippery roads and the dangerous vehicle, an accident did take place.
