“7 People Who Came Back from the Dead”

Floating in air, seeing bright light, a long white tunnel, being able to see yourself lying on a bed and meeting loved ones and family members who have passed away are a few near-death experiences we have heard and read about. These experiences are not a result of human imagination, but claims by those people who had actually witnessed death for a moment before they came back to life.

In some near-death experiences, people have even visited hell, where they were tortured by demons until they came back to life.  This is a story of 10 such people who after being declared as dead, came back to life after some time. When they came back from the dead, they described what death felt like and how they would never want to experience the same ever again. Find out more about them in the story.


Ben Breedlove

When Breedlove from Austin, Texas was four-years-old, he had a rare heart condition for which he was treated. After his treatment, Breedlove posted a series of videos on YouTube telling the world about his rare heart condition, they instantly went viral. In one of them, he told the story of his near-death experience.
According to that story, Breedlove saw a bright, peaceful light near the ceiling and he couldn’t take his eyes off it. He also couldn’t help but smile. He had reached a place where he had no worries at all. It was the best feeling he ever had and never wanted to leave the place. However, one year later, he died of an heart attack.


Veronika-Ulrike Barthel

She was struck by lightning while driving her car one day in 1981. This is when she says she was transported to hell, where she found demons escorting her into a big waiting room. Thesedemons were terrifying than any horror movie and with her there were other people screaming in pain.
She could not breathe there because that place was stinking. She also said that she saw a volcano lake where people were thrown as they screamed. Her story included snakes scattered everywhere. After this experience, she came back to life.


Howard Storm

College professor Howard Storm during his three-week European art tour with his students had a near-death experience. On the last day of his trip, he retired to his hotel room in France and suddenly screamed and dropped to the floor. At the hospital, he was examined with a perforated stomach that required surgery.

The surgery didn’t happen for a long time as the doctor had not arrived. Howard thought he won’t survive. Within a few a seconds, he saw himself standing next to his own body (which was still on the hospital bed). He felt more alive than ever, with no more stomach pain. Soon after, he heard unfamiliar voices calling to him saying, “we’ve been waiting for you.” He began to follow the voices, which led him out of the room and down a long, dark hallway. The voices then attacked him.

Soon, these voices started tearing his body to eat him. This went on for a long time. This was when Howard began to pray and found himself on the hospital bed again, really alive this time. 


Dr. Mary Neal

 During a kayaking trip in 1999, Mary became pinned under the water when her kayak capsized, making it impossible for her to breathe. That’s when she says she had a near-death experience that changed her life completely. During the experience, God told her that her family would be facing an upcoming tragedy. God also warned her of her son’s death, but the date was not revealed.
10 years later, her son dies in a car accident. While she came back to life after her brief conversation with god, she wrote a book called, ‘To Heaven And Back’.


Colton Burpo

Colton Burpo was not even four-years-old, when he had to be rushed in for an appendix surgery. After his surgery, he had an amazing story to share, which was nothing else, but his near-death experience. He said he had been to heaven, where he met Jesus, John The Baptist, God, and even family members who had passed away previously.

He also met an old man he called ‘Pop’, whom he had seen as a young man. Later, he was able to identify Pop in a family photograph as the man he had seen in heaven. His father believed him as whatever he mentioned, was never told to him. His father even wrote a book later called ‘Heaven Is For Real’. The book recounted his son’s incredible experience in detail.


Betty J. Eadie

In November 1973, Betty Eadie underwent a partial hysterectomy, after which she says she moved out of her body and passed through a tunnel to heaven. There she was told that she has died prematurely.
Her experience of touching the death has been mentioned in her book, ‘Embraced By The Light’. 


Don Piper

In January 1989, Don Piper was driving over a bridge when he met with an accident. He says, he was instantly transported to Heaven, where he found himself surrounded by dead relatives and friends, and a large pearl gate. The whole place was too bright for him to see properly.

While in the real world, people declared him dead and started praying over his dead body, he suddenly opened his eyes. Don wrote a book called ‘90 Minutes In Heaven’ after his recovery.
