Real Name: Logan James Carroll
Case: Medical Mystery
Date: April 6, 1995
Details: On April 6, 1995, Todd and Tami Carroll went to the hospital, awaiting the birth of their third child. They were worried, however, because their second one, Megan, had been stillborn. Tests and an ultrasound were done on Tami; everything appeared to be normal. Her obstetrician, Dr. Diana Okon, induced labor at 8:45am. The contractions grew stronger and more frequent throughout the day. By 4:30pm, birth was imminent. The fetal monitor showed a normal heartbeat. However, as Tami began to push, it began to go down. At 4:42pm, the moment Logan was born, his heart rate plunged to zero.
Dr. Okon began to have CPR done on Logan. Doctors and an emergency team rushed to the room; they tried desperately to save his life. For fifteen minutes, they continued the CPR process. However, no heartbeat was found and there was no signs of brain activity. He was pronounced dead at 5:15pm.
Todd and Tami agreed to an autopsy, hoping for some explanation. As the doctors and nurses took pictures of Logan with his family, Tami's sister heard a gasping noise from him - but the doctors claimed it was a reflex. Forty minutes after his "death", Tami's stepmother was holding him when she realized that he was getting warmer and that he may still be alive.
A nurse soon came in and realized that Logan had a heart rate; soon, Dr. Okon determined that he was alive after all. Even though six doctors and eight nurses believed that he was dead, somehow, he had lived. Everyone was shocked how within a few hours he was a healthy baby. To this day, nobody could determine how he was able to come back from death.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the November 3, 1995 episode. It was also featured on It's a Miracle.
Results: Unsolved. No one has yet explained how Logan revived. He suffered from brain damage and was confined to a wheelchair for the remainder of his life. Despite this, he lived a happy life with his family and attended school. Sadly, he passed away in January 2020 at the age of 24.
