When 17-year-old Zach Clements passed out during football practice, the Texan teen was rushed to the hospital by paramedics. Once he arrived at the emergency unit, Zach’s heard suddenly stopped beating. For the next 20 minutes, doctors frantically tried to resuscitate him… but moments before pronouncing him dead, life surged back into Zach’s body. What Zach saw during those 20 minutes was simply incredible.
“When I was out those 20 minutes, I saw a man who had long ruffled hair and kind of a thick beard, and it didn’t take me long to realize that that was Jesus,” Zack said. “I went up to him and he put his hand on my shoulder and he told me everything would be alright and not to worry. I was just calm and at peace.”
Near death experiences are certainly real. In a study of 2,600 patients that suffered cardiac arrest, 46% of them experienced ‘real’ events that occurred after being declared medically dead. Since brain function ceases 20-30 seconds after the heart stops beating, researchers now believe that the question of what happens after you die “merits further genuine investigation without prejudice.”
“For him to wake up and tell us something he experienced like that. It’s just you can’t explain it. It’s not humanly possible to explain it,” said Mr. Clements. “People can argue science and logic, but they can’t argue somebody’s personal experience. They can’t take that away from Zack.”
