Today, we intend to lavish praise.

Praise for succeeding in making a heart beat again after that heart ceased to beat for almost an hour!

Doctors of the Zayed Military Hospital and Al Ain Hospital gave 25 electric shocks to a female patient who had an heart attack and her heart had stopped beating.

The female patient's heart was literally "shocked" to beat again. For her it was like being born again.
