Man who was pronounced dead for 20 minutes explains what he saw and how it changed his life forever

Man who was pronounced dead for 20 minutes explains what he saw and how it changed his life forever

Scott Drummond was 28 when he died for 20 minutes

Do you believe in life after death? This might be a story to change your mind.

Scott Drummond was 28 when he dislocated his thumb in a skiing accident and needed to undergo a routine operation to fix the injury quickly.

However, disaster would strike moments after Drummond was put on to the operating table.

According to the man, now in his late sixties, one of the nurses in the operating room had never performed a surgical tourniquet before and was reassured by the doctor that he would talk her through it.

A routine surgery ended with Drummond dead for 20 minutes.

Unfortunately, during the routine surgery, the tourniquet valves were incorrectly opened, and Drummond lost his life for a short amount of time due to the complications.

During the incident, Drummond recalled the nurse screaming, ‘I killed him!’ as she ran from the room. The next thing he remembered was a sensation in his arm which reached up to his heart, and all of a sudden he was floating above his body looking down at the operating table.

Speaking to Prioritise Your Life, Drummond shared: “I watched every stitch that was put into my thumb.”

He also remembered feeling a presence next to him, which he believes now to have been God.

From what he can recall, Drummond recounted how the faceless being transported him to a field full of beautiful flowers.

Scott was taken to a field of wildflowers.

He said during the interview: “I was told, it’s time to go.”

During the encounter with the mystery person beside him, Drummond noted that no words were exchanged verbally, but actually through the mind.

He said: “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.”

Drummond continued: "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.

He believes the presence with him was God.

"And I just remember looking and seeing how beautiful the flowers were, because 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."

Once he had reached the cloud, an arm popped out of it and told him: “It is not yet your time. You have more things yet to do.”

As the arm withdrew back into the cloud, Drummond was pulled back into his own body and ‘knew he had to do better with his life’.
