A woman who was kept on life support for 10 days after her heart stopped beating was finally revived and is now on the road to recovery.

The 31-year-old surnamed Zhang was rushed to a local hospital in Yancheng after suffering from cardiac arrest, Yangtze Evening Post reported Thursday.

Doctors diagnosed her with acute viral myocarditis, a viral infection of the heart that can lead to death.

The hospital called in cardiologists from Nanjing-based Zhongda Hospital who put Zhang on machines to maintain her lung and heart activity.

There she remained on life support for 10 days before her heartbeat resumed and stabilized five days later.
