Watch: Human Heart On Cocaine Beats For 25 Minutes After Removal From Body

This is as cracked up as it appears to be! Recently, Loyola University Medical Centre released a video of this massive human heart that was swollen three times its size due to drug abuse.

That's not the astonishing part.

The heart continued to beat for 25 minutes after it was removed from a deceased cocaine user. According to the video by Ruptly, medical experts say a normal human heart usually beats for about a minute after death, on an average. But this heart that belonged to this drug abuser (he used cocaine for 15 years) has left everyone astounded.
