If there was no such thing as afterlife then how could anyone be resuscitated after hours of death?

    But they are. The first stage as soon as the heart stops is Primary Flaccidity: All the muscles in the body commence relaxing. Skin loses its tension. Most of the brain cells (Neurons) die within 20-45 minutes of cardiac arrest.

    Absolutely right MO. As the heart stops pallor mortis hits within 5-10 minutes of death. Blood starts to drain from the smaller capillaries of the body with the effect of gravity. Within the first hour more than 50% of Brain's 85 billion neurons die.

    Very right. There are almost 40000 varifiable recorded cases. In the 2013 case of David Binks, he was dead for 70 minutes before being resuscitated. Doctors were boggled to find zero brain damage after such a long time had passed post cardiac arrest.
