A description of the experience
Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections
Case No. 361 - Miss S. M. "Stopford", of Blackpool, sent the following (in litt., Oct. 5, 1960):
I had the experience of leaving the body when given ether for an operation. It was in 1928, when I was 22 years of age. I found myself in a dark, windy, cold tunnel.... I could see distant lights, but, after travelling along at top speed for a time, I was suddenly back in my body (not understood at the time, of course) with a gigantic' bang' ... It left me with the firm conviction that life does exist outside the flesh.
