A British woman says it's a "miracle" she's alive after surviving a six - hour cardiac arrest brought on by severe hypothermia. Audrey Schoeman, 34, was hiking with her husband last month in Spain's Pyrenees mountain range when she began to have trouble speaking and moving, Reuters reported.

Hypothermia, although causing her body to shut down, also meant her brain and organs had been protected.

Dr Argudo added: "If she had been in cardiac arrest for this long at a normal body temperature, she would be dead."

In hospital, she was put on a machine that removed her blood, re-oxygenated it, and then pumped it back into her body.

Then, once her body temperature had reached 30C (86F), she was switched to a defibrillator. It was then that her heart began working again, six hours after emergency services were called.

Speaking to local media, she said: "It's like a miracle except that it's all because of the doctors.

"Probably this winter, I won't go to the mountains, but I hope that in spring we'll be able to start hiking again. I don't want this to take away that hobby."

Mrs Schoeman was discharged from hospital 12 days after being admitted.
