Even though it is not that common, many people who have been ‘dead’ for a couple of minutes have said that they felt a sort of peaceful feeling during that time.
That’s the case of 16-year-old Zach Clements, whose heart stopped for 20 minutes. Everything started on a normal day at Victory Life Academy in Brownsville, Texas. During his PE class, he collapsed.
It was later revealed that he had suffered a cardiac arrest. He was immediately taken to the nearest hospital despite the fact he had no pulse. Once in the emergency room, doctors failed to revive him.
A couple of seconds before they officially pronounced him dead, his heart ‘miraculously’ started beating again. While it is quite surprising, the most interesting aspect of his situation happened a bit later.
When he regained his consciousness, he confessed that he had seen a man with long, curly hair and with a thick beard. Initially, he didn’t recognize who he was.
When the misterious man approached him, he knew that it was Jesus Christ. Clements admitted that He put His arms on his shoulders and told him that everything was going to be fine.
His family took a video of him telling his story and shared it on social media. Soon after that, it became viral and many people around the world were commenting on it.
Clements’ experience reached so many that the local news station visited his home to interview him and his entire family to know more information about what happened.
His mother, Teresa, recalled the awful moment when she opened the ambulance door and saw the paramedics on top of her son, who was blue, doing chest compressions to try to bring him back to life.
Billy, his father, added that the only way to explain what happened was as a miracle. Finally, he pointed out that it was a ‘right word’ from God they got and that they would hold on to that.
