A 14-year old London girl’s remains are being preserved in Michigan with the hope that she’ll be brought back to life, Mike Householder with The Associated Press reports.

She’s doing so through Cryonics: a technique where legally-dead people are cooled with liquid nitrogen to the extent that physical decay essentially stops, according to the cryonics institute.
