If there is one thing that puts us all together on the same plane of existence, it is the fact that we are all going to die at some point in our lives. Whether we are young, old, healthy, or sick, death is waiting for us at the door. Because we technically don’t know what happens when we die, there have been speculations expressed through religion and even ghost hunting. Many of us have a very strong fear of death, fearing that we will just cease to exist and it’s simply the end. We deal with that fear by going to church, talking about heaven and hell, or doing some sort of soul searching to make peace with the fact that we will not live forever.
However, there are those who say that they have died and come back to life, and therefore are able to answer that nagging question of what awaits us after we die. The very act of dying is usually not a reversible act, which makes coming back to life even more incredible. Skeptics would say that near-death experiences are the brain’s way of coping with its impending end, which would mean that people who have had these experiences didn’t really die, but went comatose or had a hallucination.
Here is a list of incredible people who died and came back to life. They’re stories are extraordinary and garnered them national attention. These people have toed the line between life and death and lived to tell the tale. They hold the clues to what happens to us after death.
