No, cryonics isn't that successful yet. But Mike Darwin et al have
held a dog at near freezing temperatures for 15 minutes with no
damage, which might be the source of the rumor.

I had heard that from my elementary teacher in the 80s, about the two week

We watched a film about it, they showed the dog playing, but I dont remember
that much, it was 2 weeks though supposedly, maybe it wasnt.

People have been dead for longer than 15 min, I think like 30 min or an hour
while frozen, like from drowning in ice water, before being revived.
