A description of the experience
The Mystery of the Human Double – Ralph Shirley
A curious case was given in the Lancet (June 21st, 1884), suggesting the importance of heat as an aid to resuscitation.
A mother and her baby were ill of smallpox. Both appeared to die and were declared dead by the doctor. The grandmother, however, had made the nurse promise that if death appeared to take place she would put additional blankets on the supposed corpses and leave them till the grandmother's return.
The nurse did as she was requested and the next day when the grandmother came back they were both found to be alive and in each case made a complete recovery.
