Eden Carlson is a young girl whose brain damage reversal is being called a miracle. As seen in the video below, Eden’s survival after a drowning caused Carlson to technically and medically die for two hours in February 2016 is being chronicled. The video explains how the toddler got around the safety of the family’s gates and ended up in the pool for 15 minutes that fateful day. According to the New York Daily News, doctors turned to hyperbaric oxygen therapy in order to help the 2-year-old recover from the brain damage Eden suffered.
In essence, the hyperbaric oxygen therapy helped to “wake up” Eden’s brain by providing her with oxygen that helped to increase the oxygen in her blood, repair her brain, and regrow tissue. Doctors credit Eden’s young age as being part of the reason for the success of the oxygen treatments.
