[Gloom] Countering a Untimely Death card

We've been arguing about with my family in which order do Untimely Death cards and counters resolve.

If somebody is trying to kill a family member in Gloom can one counter it from happening at all? Or does the character die first and then is resurrected instantly? In my opinion counter card (A Second Chance) blocks Untimely Death card from happening altogether but I have to be sure to keep the peace. :slight_smile:

Thanks for helping out!
