by Moody Adams "It wasn't logical, the doctor thought. The man had suffered a massive heart attack and died 40 minutes ago. Even his skin had started to turn black. But the feeling wouldn't go away, Dr. Chauncey W. Crandall reports in his new book, ‘Raising the Dead: A Doctor Encounters the Miraculous,’ and he felt compelled to return to the emergency room where the body of auto mechanic Jeff Markin rested.”
After the doctor had finished the paperwork on Markin’s death and was heading out of the room, God told him to go back, "Before I crossed its threshold, however, I sensed God was telling me to turn around and pray for the patient," he reports.
On Oct. 20, 2006, at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, Crandall says God impressed him to try one more shock with a defibrillator. He gave the order, and Markin's heart monitor immediately registered a steady heartbeat. Markin remains alive and well today.
Crandall is chief of the cardiovascular transplant program at the Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic in Palm Beach Gardens. He is also on staff at Good Samaritan Medical Center and Jupiter Medical Center. He has lectured nationally on heart transplantation, preventive cardiology, and cardiology health care of the elderly.
