SCIENTISTS have created eerie zombie dogs, reanimating the canines after
several hours of clinical death in attempts to develop suspended animation
US scientists have succeeded in reviving the dogs after three hours of
clinical death, paving the way for trials on humans within years.
Pittsburgh's Safar Centre for Resuscitation Research has developed a
technique in which subject's veins are drained of blood and filled with
an ice-cold salt solution.
The animals are considered scientifically dead, as they stop breathing
and have no heartbeat or brain activity.
But three hours later, their blood is replaced and the zombie dogs are
brought back to life with an electric shock.
