A great story along with the great photograph, my farther recounted a similar story when he was knocked unconscious and died whist under a ship doing some work on the hull when he was in the navy and he said much the same things but the funny thing was when he was bought up to the surface and resuscitated he was quite angry with the person who saved his life because he said it was one of the most wonderful feelings he had experanced , I'm sure he was thankful afterwards! I am because I wouldn't be here otherwise !View attachment 26676
The dark side - 'A tunnel of light,' - when in his 20's a friend of mine had to have his wisdom teeth taken out - fairly routine. Unfortunately for him, the muscle relaxant component of the anesthetic did its job too well and it also relaxed his heart - to the point it stopped beating. He was clinically dead for a few minutes. He remembered the experience - and can lucidly narrate it. He was falling into a tunnel of light - he didn't feel scared at all, quite the opposite - there was a sense of wonder. On his descent he passed static points of light that he knew were angels. This is a bit odd as he was not raised in a religious environment and has no personal belief. Then - bang - lights out. He knows in retrospect that this was the moment they put the paddles on his chest and connected him to the national grid to restart his heart. He remembers nothing more until he woke up several days later in the HDU of the hospital. - Palma, Leica and film. cheers - I.
