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.

"It’s like a miracle except that it’s all because of the doctors,” Schoeman told Catalan broadcaster TV3.

Schoeman developed severe hypothermia that played an important role in her incredible survival because it lowered her body temperature and preserved her brain from deterioration, doctors said.

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

Doctors employed a cooling technique called therapeutic hypothermia, lowering his body temperature to about 91.4 degrees for 24 hours to cool his brain and prevent and further damage.

Teacher reveals extraordinary ordeal after her body temperature dropped to 18C when she was lost British woman survived over six hours with no heartbeat in unprecedented case Spain-based Audrey Schoeman suffered hypothermia-induced cardiac arrest An English teacher survived after her heart stopped beating for more than six hours in a case

The cooling of Schoeman's body helped save her after her husband said he was unable to detect a pulse or heartbeat when she fell unconscious on the mountain.

Her body temperature had dropped to 64 degrees Fahrenheit, more than 30 degrees below normal (98.6), when rescuers reached her two hours after her husband called for help, according to Reuters.

"She looked as though she was dead," Argudo said in a statement. "But we knew that, in the context of hypothermia, Audrey had a chance of surviving."

Doctors used a machine that removed her blood, infused it with oxygen and then reintroduced it into her body, according to the BBC. They restarted her heart with a defibrillator after her body temperature reached 86 degrees, six hours after rescue workers were first contacted.

Schoeman, who has no memory of the six-hour ordeal, spent 12 days in the hospital and did not suffer any serious neurological damage. She even plans to start hiking again in the spring.

"I don't want this to take away that hobby from me," she told TV3.
