A man has recalled what it was like when he died for 20 minutes and 'went to heaven'. Watch here:


Scott Drummond was 28-years-old when a routine operation on his thumb led to him being 'pronounced dead for 20 minutes'.

The terrifying ordeal was anything but though for Scott, who had a 'magnificent' and 'peaceful' experience he'll remember until the day he dies - again.

Recounting the experience in an interview with Prioritize Your Life, he said: "In my mind I was told, 'OK, iit's time to go.'

"And I remember so vividly, I could never look back, or I was instructed never to look back again, and the next thing I knew, and it was like a twinkling of an eye, I was standing in a field where the person who was with me was right next to me, but I couldn't see them.

"I looked over to the left and there was some great big tall trees, and I remember they were the most unusual looking trees, they had a long trunk with leaves up on top, and there were lots of them.

"Then to the right of that, which would be still to the left of me, was wildflowers, beautiful wildflowers, and they were up about to my waist. And I just remember looking and seeing how beautiful the flowers were, because it's something that I really enjoy is yard work and gardening and I just remembered the vivid colours were magnificent.

"The next thing I knew the person that had escorted me there was not there anymore and I was by myself, but it was so peaceful."

However, his time in this peaceful land was to be cut short.

He continued: "An arm came through... Just came through and I'll never forget it. It was an arm that was strong. It was somebody that had worked in the farming industry, where his arms were big and his hands.

"I reached towards his hand and he said, 'It is not yet your time you have more things yet to do.' He pulled his arm back through and I didn't see it again because of the cloud that was in front of me.

"At that time, I went back into my body. The doctor said that there was a war going on inside of my body. The war was that I did not want to come back because it was so peaceful.

"I came out to find out I had a paper on my chest and it pronounced me dead for 20 minutes - and I'd been gone. But I was gone in the most peaceful place that I could have ever went."

So there you go, maybe dying isn't all that bad.
