Man Reveals What It’s Like To Die For An Hour
A man who was clinically dead for an hour has described the experience, saying he went to heaven, saw an angel and met old friends, before returning to Earth.
Dr Gary Wood was 18 when he was driving with his younger sister Sue and their vehicle collided with an illegally parked truck.
He suffered a crushed larynx and vocal chords, as well has having his nose ripped off and breaking several bones. When paramedics arrived at the scene, Gary was pronounced dead.
Recalling the experience on Jewish Voice, Gary said: "Dying is just like taking your clothes off and just laying them aside.
"I stepped out of this body, this Earth suit, and then was lifted up through the top of my car and my whole life just passed before my eyes in just an instant.
"Then I was caught in a swirling massive funnel shape cloud that grew brighter."
"Then this cloud opened up and I saw this giant golden satellite, suspended in space that the Bible calls Heaven."
From there his 'ascent to heaven' became even more bizarre.
Gary claims he was greeted by a '70ft tall' angel who stood in front of gates '500 miles wide'.

"He had a sword, he had beautiful gold, spun hair. And there was an angel inside of the city that was holding some books," he said.
"There was some exchange between the two angels and then I was allowed into the city."
Gary, who has written book about his 'experience', said he was then given a tour of 'heaven' by his childhood best friend who was killed in a lawnmower accident.
He also claims to have met the man many consider to be heaven's biggest VIP: Jesus.
"I was sent back to tell people that Heaven is real, there is a song to sing, there is a mission or journey to take, there is a book to write. You're unique in purpose on this Earth," he said.
"Jesus told me to give a specific message - there will be a spirit of restoration that would prevail throughout the land, there would be a teaching and emphasis on prayer."
Medics managed to revive Gary, meaning his trip to the afterlife was cut short, and he has since become a minister.
Of course nobody can verify his claims, but as Belinda Carlisle once, perhaps prophetically said: "Ooh, baby, do you know what that's worth? Ooh, heaven is a place on earth."
