Death and its Mystery: After Death – Camille Flammarion
My grandparents were living in a little town in the Canton of Savoie. Grandmamma had a brother of whom she was very fond; he lived about fifty kilometers from the town.
One evening, at about eleven o'clock, Grandfather and Grandmother heard a loud, noise of falling dishes in the kitchen, out of which their bedroom opened. My grandfather got up to see what had happened and, to his great surprise, found that nothing in the kitchen was broken or out of place. Then my grandmother said, after a moment of thought: “That noise was not natural. My brother is dead; I'm sure of it. Get on your horse and start off."
Grandfather left some minutes later. When he had gone about twenty kilometers he met one of his brother-in-law's servants, who was coming to announce the latter’s death. He went on his way, and, when he reached the home of the man who had died, he learned that death had taken place fifteen to twenty minutes before the noise had been heard. This statement which I have made is rigorously exact.
