The man, who introduced himself as Edward, said he died from a heart attack in 2012 but came back to life. During his time on the other side, Edward claims to have stood before Jesus Christ himself. Although scientists are yet to prove whether life after death is real, many so-called near-death experiences (NDEs) involve seemingly otherworldly sights and sounds.
Edward shared his story with the Near-Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF).
He said: “My heart was hurting and it became difficult for me to breathe. I didn’t want to make a scene, so I just laid back on the grass.
“I told myself that whatever was going to happen, is going to happen. So I basically went with the flow.
“Then I felt a very painful, strong force pulling me under the ground. It felt as if it was trying to drag me to hell.”
