Life after death: Man shares account of ‘heavenly light’ in the afterlife after near-death

LIFE after death is real, at least according to a man who claims to have passed into the afterlife when a swimming accident left him paralysed.

The man, who only gave his name as Brom, believes he caught a glimpse of the afterlife after injuring his back in a swimming accident in 1975. Brom said the incident left him paralysed from the shoulders-down and fighting for his life. He shared his harrowing account with the Near-Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF).


    According to Brom, the accident pushed him to the very brink and he briefly suffered from clinical death – a cessation of breathing or heart function – when a trachea tube accidentally got pulled out of his throat.

    As this happened, he was transported from the hospital where he was being treated to another realm.

    Brom said: “I became fully engulfed in heavenly light while being propelled forward.

    “I clearly heard the loud of rushing wind. After some moments of awe and wonder, I realised that my consciousness had been separated from my body.”

    “Instinctively, I struggled to return to my body by sending messages to those parts of my body.

    “I tried to shrug my shoulders, blink my eyes, and turning my head, but did not seem to have any effect at first.”

    As he struggled to return to the land of the living, Brom said he was resuscitated by a doctor who replaced Brom’s trachea tube.

    Brom said: “As my sensation of being separated began to fade, the sound of wind began to diminish.

    “I heard my brother’s voice. I heard the doctor’s voice telling me to calm down, stop moving around, and that I was going to be okay.”

    Following the incident, Brom has come to the conclusion an afterlife “definitely exists”.

    He described his near-death experience (NDE) as both pleasant and distressing.

    However, many medical experts believe there are non-supernatural explanations that can explain Brom’s NDE and many similar ones.

    According to Dr Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City, NDES are often characterised by similar sights and sounds.

    He said during an OZ Talk: “People describe a sensation of a bright, warm, welcoming light that draws people towards it.

    “They describe a sensation of experiencing their deceased relatives, almost as if they have come to welcome them.

    “They often say that they didn’t want to come back in many cases, it is so comfortable and it is like a magnet that draws them that they don’t want to come back.

    “A lot of people describe a sensation of separating from themselves and watching doctors and nurses working on them.”

    One possible explanation for the visions is the brian scanning itself during a moment of trauma as a survival technique.

    According to the NHS, the existence of an afterlife remains within the realm of speculation and not science.

    The NHS said in 2014: “A more accepted definition of death is when brain stem death occurs, which is when all neural activity in the deepest brain ceases.

    “While it is possible to keep the heart functioning using life support systems, a person with brain stem death has permanently lost the potential for consciousness.

    “The existence of an ‘afterlife’ remains a matter of belief, not scientific proof.”
