Malaysian Tony Low was pronounced brain dead by not one but four physicians, who advised his wife to give consent for him to be taken off life support. However, about a week into brain death, he miraculously recovered and lived to tell his amazing experience while in coma.

Due to brain cancer, Low also had a substantial part of his brain surgically removed, but magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) performed sometime post-surgery showed that the part of the brain that was removed had been inexplicably restored, confounding his surgeon.
