This lady had surgery for an impacted wisdom tooth, but was accidentally given a huge dose of anaesthetic in the recovery room instead of antibiotics, at which point she had a cardiac arrest and started to die...

A description of the experience

Light and Death – Dr Michael Sabom

I could hear them call 'Code Blue – Recovery'.  I was very conscious for a couple of seconds that I could not breathe.  I had a very fleeting moment of panic and then I just went out.  It was the most peaceful feeling I have ever had in my whole life.  There is nothing you can even compare it to.

There was something like a moment of blackness and then I found myself walking down a hallway lined with doors.  There was a very bright light at the end of the hallway and a voice kept telling me everything was fine.  I felt wonderful and I just kept walking straight down towards the light
