Man Who 'Went To Hell' Describes What It Was Like

Man Who 'Went To Hell' Describes What It Was Like

Bill Wiese had a short-lived trip to the underworld

A guy who said he literally experienced hell has recounted his memory of what happened when he was allegedly trapped in the underworld for 23 minutes. Watch him explain what happened:

Bill Wiese has recalled what happened when in November 1998, he got up at 3am to get a drink.

Despite thinking he was just heading to the fridge, he actually briefly visited the middle of the earth, where he said he heard 'millions of people screaming' in the depths of hell.

He describes the whole thing as an out-of-body experience, saying he was pulled from his body and travelled to hell through a long tunnel.

Speaking to Christian broadcaster TCT Network, Bill said: "It was getting hotter and hotter and I landed on a stone floor in a prison cell in hell.

"There were stone walls, bars it was more like a dungeon - a filthy, stinking, smoke filled dungeon."

I'm sure we've all experienced that at 3am once or twice.

He continued: "The heat was so unbearable, I wondered how could I be alive. Why am I here, how did I get here?"

He said he then saw two enormous demons in the cell, saying they were pacing around the cell.

The creatures, who had a 'ferocious demeanour', were blaspheming, according to Bill.

He explained: "And then they directed this hatred they had towards god towards me. One demon picked me up and threw me into the wall of this prison cell. I felt as if bones had broken. Now I know a spirit doesn't have bones, but it felt that way.

"I wondered why am I still alive through this. The other demon dug its claws into my chest and just tore the flesh open. This is actually happening."

He said the prison cell then was lit up, with what he believed to be god's presence there, before it was plunged into darkness again.

As if all that wasn't bad enough, he was taken out of his prison cell and put next to a random pit of fire.

But, it wasn't metaphorical flames, he assures us, it was 'real fire'.

Some fire, like the fire in hell.

This is where he could first see people.

He said he saw 'thousands of people in this pit, screaming and burning', adding that they looked like skeletons.

He said there were various degrees of punishment and he was kept in isolation, adding 'the stench in hell is the most foul, putrid disgusting odour'. He likens it to sewers and burning sulphur and it's toxic to inhale.

Doesn't sound ideal, does it?

Luckily, Bill was returned to earth safely and ended up writing a book called 23 Minutes In Hell, which went on to sell more than a million copies.
