The ‘Supernaturals’ star touched death and was resurrected four times!

Mark Sheppard reiterated the events of the miraculous yet traumatizing incident that occurred that day via an Instagram post on Saturday. He captioned the post, “You’re not going to believe this! Was on my way to an appointment yesterday when I collapsed in my kitchen,” adding, “Six massive heart attacks later, and being brought back from dead 4 times I apparently had a 100% blockage in my [left anterior descending artery].”

According to the Cleveland Clinic, this heart attack occurs from “full blockage in [the] heart’s biggest artery.”
