#3. The atheist who became a believer
Howard Storm, a professor in arts, had his near death experience in Paris, France. He was with his students and his wife on an art tour in Europe. One night in his hotel room, he suddenly felt pain, screamed and collapsed on the floor. Luckily his wife was there and called for help.
Later in the hospital, she was told that her husband had a perforated stomach, a condition that requires a timely surgery. There was no doctor available that could take care of him, so they had to wait. It was a long and painful experience for Howard, he felt that he is fading away, and at some point he said his final farewell to his wife, as he was sure that those are his final moments. Moments later he found himself standing near his hospital bed, looking at himself lying there. He felt no more pain, and he was actually feeling great.
Soon after he heard unknown voices calling on to him. He first tried to speak to his wife, but realized that she can not see or hear him. So he followed the voices. They led him out of the room and down a dark hallway. As it was getting darker and scarier, Howard told the voices that he refuses to go any further. That enraged them and they attacked him. Howard recalls a big fight, and remembers how he was painfully bitten and torn. He feels uncomfortable describing everything that those demons did to him. But he clearly remembers a soft voice that told him to pray to God, and pray he did. After a couple of prayers, Jesus himself appeared to save him. He helped him find his way back, and instructed him to live his life differently.
This experience made a believer out of Howard, who was a hardcore atheist prior to that accident. Howard published a book based on this experience in 2000. The book’s name is “My Descent into Death”.

#4. Amanda Cable whose daughter brought her back to life
The 5th of September 2003 is a day that Amanda will never forget. It was the first school day for her daughter Ruby, and also the day she died (for a short while).
After feeling sick for several days with no signs of improvement, Amanda called her GP and just in time. By the time the doctor came in she was in a very bad condition and he had to call an Ambulance. Her diagnose was an ectopic pregnancy. The doctors didn’t take it seriously enough and she was given pain killers and put under monitoring for the night. Her husband was immediately called to her bedside, but she insisted that he goes back home to take care of the kids and prepare their daughter Ruby for her first day at school.
Despite the painkillers her condition got worse and she called the nurse. The next thing she knew the doctors were rushing her into the operating room. She was dizzy and in pain, she was hearing the doctors cursing, and then her pulse stopped. But yet she was perfectly aware of her surroundings. She realized that she was dying, recalling all her loved ones sending them silent goodbyes. And suddenly she felt sucked towards the bright operating light. She found herself in a white tunnel, away from all the cursing and noises in the operating room, feeling no pain but rather light and clear headed. She felt no fear, even though she perfectly realized what is happening to her. Feeling that her already passed away loved ones are expecting her on the other side, she was about to go for it, but then she felt a presence near hear. She turned towards that direction, expecting to see her grandmother, but she was quite amazed to see her daughter Ruby dressed in her new school uniform with her hair neatly tied in bunches. This was the first time she ever saw her in a school uniform, and she never before made her hair in bunches, so she was a bit surprised.
Ruby grabbed her hand and while smiling asked her to come with her, they headed in the opposite direction, and Ruby was constantly urging her to move, while constantly turning her head to check if she is still behind. They reached a door, Amanda hesitated and thought once more of those awaiting her on the other side, but Ruby was insistent and urged her to go through the door. Once she stepped over, Ruby slammed the door.
At this moment Amanda felt the electric shock surging through her body, and she was back. Hours later after she was taken out of intensive care, her husband Ray arrived to see her, and he brought a picture of Ruby’s first day at school.
Upon looking at the picture Amanda was left speechless, as she saw her daughter in the same uniform and with the same hairstyle as she was in her dream.
To this day Amanda is contemplating on that moment as it was far more memorable than the painful recovery she had to go through after that operation.

#5. Zushiba’s aunt near death experience
A user posting under the alias Zushiba has shared her aunt’s near death experience which occurred while she was undergoing surgery. She described how she was floating above the operating table observing herself and the doctors trying to save her. Suddenly she felt a pull and flew out of the room and found herself floating a couple of inches off the ground, above a field of dirt bordering a deep and very dark chasm. She couldn’t see the bottom of it, but on the other side of the chasm she saw a beautiful field with grass, flowers and sunshine, while on her side of the chasm it was an overcast, and there was no vegetation, just dirt.
As she was gazing at the beautiful field, a pair of hands came out of the dark pit reaching toward her. They grabbed her and started pulling her violently, she felt as if her flesh was thorn from her legs. The hands caused her pain like no other, but eventually she managed to drag herself back to the dirt and there was only blackness before her. Right after that she found herself back in the operating room floating near the ceiling, and she observed how her body spasm and her hand slapping that of the doctor operating her, breaking his watch. That is the last thing she remembers while out of her body, and her next memory was waking up in the hospital bed.

#6. A glimpse of hell
While most of the NDE’s describe the blissful feeling of heaven around the soul, there are some that weren’t quite so lucky.
This next one is the story of Angie Fenimore, who attempted suicide back in 1991. She describes that she has been put under a review of her entire life, each and every moment she had lived through, and each and every decision she has ever taken. All interactions she ever had with other people were replayed before her eyes, and she could feel the emotions her actions have induced in those people.
After that she found herself surrounded by endless darkness and in that darkness she was able to recognize the silhouettes of a group of young people who she presumed to be suicides just as her. She was able to communicate with them without opening her mouth, but no matter how hard she tried she couldn’t get a response from any of the other souls.
Later she found herself in a different part of hell, in an open field, full of aimlessly wandering tortured souls, able to communicate, but too obsessed with their own misery to do so.
Strange enough Angie’s description is a very close match to the Revelation of Sister Josefa Menendez who was an early 20th century Spanish nun, said to have been directed by god to write a description of hell.
