SAMMAMISH, WA (February 22, 2010) – The Sammamish Review begins its story on Covenanter Larry Larsen, “After dying four times in 10 days, Larry Larsen simply got up and walked out of the hospital.”
His journey began with a massive heart attack on January 13. Emergency teams worked on Larsen for more than half and hour. He spent his first days in the hospital in an induced hypothermic state, was found to have no brain activity, and was revived out of “Code Blue” several times.
Less than three weeks after entering the hospital, Larsen is walking two miles per day. His wife, Priscilla, refers to him as Lazarus Larry. Some of the medical specialists attribute his survival to having exercised throughout his life.
The Larsens attend Pine Lake Covenant Church.
