Man who ‘died for 30 minutes’ as doctors advised life-support switch off has miraculous recovery

A man who suffered a shock cardiac arrest and was facing the prospect of having his life support machine switched off has made a ‘miracle’ recovery.

Doctors had advised the family of Sean Chilvers, 30, that it might be best to ‘turn off the machines’ when he was placed in an induced coma earlier this year.

But five months later, the kitchen assistant is able to talk again as he continues his remarkable battle to return to full health.

Sean, from Burton upon Trent, was found to have a hypoxic brain injury after he collapsed and ‘died for 30 minutes’ at his Horninglow home in February.

His mother, Michelle, was advised on how to perform life-saving CPR for her son while waiting for an ambulance as she spoke with operators on the phone.

Sean was rushed to intensive care at Burton’s Queen’s Hospital and placed under an induced coma for six weeks.

His family have been now told he could return home by the end of the summer, marking a miraculous recovery from the 30-year-old.

StaffordshireLive reports Sean first felt unwell with stomach bug-like symptoms after Christmas last year, but was not alarmed.

Two months later, he fell ill again and on Saturday, February 13, he was watching TV at home when he collapsed in front of his mother.   

As he was placed in an induced coma for more than a month, doctors told the family the devastating news that his life-support machine could be switched off.

The family refused, and Sean was later transferred to the Royal Derby Hospital.

His mother, Michelle, explained: ‘It took a while to figure out what had happened as he baffled them. His kidneys had packed up and that had caused the cardiac arrest.  

‘He is our little miracle and I will make him see how much he is loved. 

‘I just want him to come home.’ 

Doctors discovered Sean had an underlying health condition that caused excessive levels of potassium to form in his blood, which led to his kidney failure

Although he continues to improve day by day, Sean has suffered brain damage – with the full extent yet to be revealed by experts.

The family are delighted at the prospect of having him back home after his remarkable recovery – with August 11 pencilled in as a provisional date.

Sean’s sister Amy explained: ‘It has been a rollercoaster of different emotions. 

‘The amount of times we’ve nearly lost him as his immune system is low has been terrifying. It hasn’t been very nice.

‘But he is still here, we just have to accept that a part of Sean has gone no matter how hard he is trying but we love him regardless.’
