Texas community celebrates boy's 'miraculous recovery' with superhero sendoff

Days before Christmas, Owen Coulter, 5, of Austin, Texas, was rushed to the hospital with a deadly virus and moments later, his heart stopped. He was unresponsive.

As medical staff at Dell Children's Hospital performed CPR and tried to revive him, his mother, Kristin Coulter, immediately started praying.

"I cried out for him. I told him to stay with us. I told him I loved him, and I asked God to save him," she told FOX 7. Darin Coulter, his father, a firefighter with the Austin Fire Department, knew it wasn't good.

After 90 minutes of CPR and putting Owen on an ECMO machine, something normally used for adults, his heart began to beat again.

"He's our miracle baby," Coulter added. "He was the hospital’s Christmas miracle."
