Life after death: 'I was very much at peace' claims man after near-death experience

The man, who introduced himself as Bryant, smacked his head on a cement floor after falling from a ladder. The incident occurred five years ago and it has opened up his eyes about the possibility of life going on after death. Although he does not know if some form of an afterlife exists, he believes there could be life after life or some form of reincarnation.

He said: “I was standing on the very top of an eight-foot ladder while installing a ceiling fan-coil unit.

“I reached out too far and started to lose my balance. Before I went completely over, I grabbed the sheet metal overflow pan but it folded and almost cut off my fingers, so I let go of it.

“Both, the ladder and I, crashed to the ground. I ended up hitting the back of my head on a cement floor and was knocked unconscious.”

As he lay on the floor, Bryant claims he was acutely aware of his life slipping away.

But he was at peace with the thought and it did not alarm him.

Instead, he only worried about his family and their future.

Bryant said: “I thought about how I lived my life and felt that it was a good life.

“I thought about how I raised my daughter and it okay because she has had such a good start at life.

“At the time, she was age 25 and I put her through college.

At the hospital, he was diagnosed with a concussion and felt ill for about a month.

And although Bryant has such vivid memories of what happened after he hit his head, many medical experts do not believe his near-death experience (NDE) was divine or supernatural.

Instead, experts like Dr Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City, believe many people experience similar feelings in moments of trauma.

He said: “Death is a process, it is not a black and white moment.

“The final result is we have a deduction of oxygen that gets inside the brain when we are about to die and that causes our brain circuits to shut down and we become unconscious to the outside world.

“When the heart stops, all life processes go out because there is no blood getting to the brain, to the kidneys, and liver and we become lifeless and motionless and that is the time that doctors use to give us a time of death.”

A lack of oxygen in the brain could be one reason why so many people have memories of leaving their body or visiting an afterlife.

Dr Parnia said: “People describe a sensation of a bright, warm, welcoming light that draws people towards it.”
