Dean Winters is a familiar face on television, from his insurance commercials as the character of "Mayhem" to his new starring role in the CBS series "Battle Creek."
Winters woke up on June 18, 2009, with a bad fever. He decided to try and sleep it away. But he woke the next day to see that his entire body was gray because of a bacterial infection. On his way to the hospital, his heart stopped for two and a half minutes.
