It is not medically possible unless the person is clinically dead. However, a person can go into a coma for this time and wake up from it. It is also possible during surgical heart operations where the heart is stopped for a few hours and then restarted, during this time, the person is considered to be clinically dead.

Before you can be dead ,the brain has to be dead, "no activity", when that happens, there's no coming back.

Yes, but only if there is something that they need to do.

I have experienced it.
Report as
Highly doubt it ... put the medical records (death certificate, etc) on a website of your choice, and provide a link.
Report as
I would say it's kinda sad that you doubt it, but then again you'd only believe it if you experienced it. Someday you'll know.
Report as
No ... if you can produce a death certificate, or medical documentation saying somebody was dead for 24 hours and came back to life ... I would believe it (after confirming, of course).

I know people who were dead for a few minutes.
But highly doubt any tale of someone dying for 24 hours, and coming back - especially in an industrialized nation, where the body would be embalmed during that time.
Report as
I know someone who was dead for three days and came back to life so...
Report as
No ... you don't ... or you would provide medical documentation.
Report as
Yes actually I do, the time he was in was before medical documentations. It also happened to my grandpa but that was only 24 h. I cannot provide for him because I'm only a teen and I think it would be a little strange if I asked my grandma for it, don't you? ;/

It is impossible to die and come back. The only way that would happen is if it where in a coma

There are cases in which people had been considered dead and had been buried rather alive! (Quite a long time ago, mind you.) However, that's because they lacked the technology and knowledge that humans have now! So, naturally, it depends on your view of the question. People can seem dead, but are they really? Even being announced clinically dead can sometimes be a mistake. Often times, people have the appearance of death... but they're still very alive. Ever read Romeo and Juliet? In Romeo and Juliet, Juliet is given an elixir that gives her the appearance of death... but it wears off in a series of hours. Voila.

It's not called "dying" when you come back to life, it's a near-death experience.
