Have you ever had a near death experience?

Report as

Sure, I've nearly drowned!

I know you tend to get pretty tranquilized towards the end there. That's about as far as I've gotten though. Up to this point.

Though I guess if you got caught in a wood chipper or something your mileage could vary...

Man that's gotta not feel good..I've been gasping for air in water before but I couldn't imagine nearly drowning..must feel horrible

I would say the wood chipper as portal to "The Great Beyond" is pretty bad, especially if you KNOW you're going in one! I think Sadam Hussein was known to put a few people in one, either that or it was one of his brothers. I think it is the KNOWING that the possibility that you are going to go "right then and there" is much worse than some unexpected accident suddenly taking you by suprise. That is why the horror of 9-11 must never be forgotten. Can imagine the shear rush of pure terror that went through the passengers on those aircrafts? (Even the UA flight where the passengers fought back.) At least some of the people in the Twin Towers probably thought they would get out alive. (Many on the upper floors knew their predicament and committed suicide instead of burning to death or letting the poisonous fumes overtake them! What a HORRIFYING way to go!)

I know exactly what you went through. I got to the point where I thought, "If I stop struggling it'll be all over in a few minutes." Then I saw a surfboard (very unusual at the deserted beach where I was swimming) and I started to yell.

Whew!

Yes, I was climbing a mountain in Lake Tahoe and I fell and slid down almost fell off the edge where it was really cold deep deep water and sharp rocks but I hanged on and my sister slid carefully down to pull me back up. and another time I was walking and saw a car coming to me and I was little so I got scared and just ducked down in a ball and it broke split in front of me because there was a big thick pole in front of me and it hit it and didn't manage to get me and another time I was in a car and it crashed but I was safe cause I was balled up at the very back of the car which happened to be the only part that didn't get smashed to pieces

Yes on a canoe trip. Canoe tipped over sending me over, and despite the fact I had a life jacket on, the fallen tree and the current of the water kept me trapped underneath and I was swallowing a lot of water, I guess a few other canoes tipped over as well at the same spot making my rescue take a little longer than I liked. I thought I was going to drown. Interestingly I think I took the thought of death pretty calmly for a kid my age. Of course that could have been shock as well. Not an experience I would like a repeat of. Also a light aircraft flight from Topeka, KS to Manhattan, KS experienced some "turmoil" that I wouldn't a repeat of either. Didn't seem to bother the pilot, either that, or he was putting on one hell of a brave and professional public front over the planes intercom.

I haven't been on a plane nor do I plan to in the near future lol

Yes, many people have a fear of flying and the turmoil that the plane went through in the air that time I was flying over Kansas, I thought the plane was going to literally break apart. The other passengers were looking a little nervous as well. Such experiences are not going to encourage those with a fear of flying to start suddenly "flying the friendly skies" 9-11 sure as sh_t hasn't helped either. Where I live I fear planes when I'M ON THE GROUND, because I think one of these days one of these big passenger behemoths are going to crash on the neighborhood due to pilot error or mechanical malfunction. Statistically speaking air travel is VERY SAFE, but emotionally plane disasters leave much more of an impression than even a fatal automobile accident which again, statisically, you have a GREATER chance of dying in.

I have not : but i've read a lot of stories about it. The book thats popular right now is "is Heaven Real"
A child that nearly died & came back.
I choose books about children...
Because kids don't just make this stuff up.

I actually 'coded' in an ambulance. Lights out.. fade to black...
I woke up as they were rushing me to the ICU and remember the ceiling lights in the hallway reminded me of the opening scene from an old TV show, Ben Casey. lol
