Scientists 'raise the dead' in experiment

...The animals had no heartbeat or brain activity and were classed as being clinically dead.

The saline solution was then replaced with fresh blood and electric shocks were used to restart the heart. The dogs appeared unharmed by their suspension and had suffered no brain damage.

Scientists...hope to use the technique on humans within a year and are in talks with hospitals about trials on trauma patients.
