A description of the experience

The Art of Dying – Drs Peter and Elizabeth Fenwick

Lucie Green and her uncle were sitting beside her father as he lay in a coma in his hospital bed.

The TV screen went totally blank, the sound went totally and then a nurse came rushing into the room and asked why we had pressed the alarm. At that very moment my father, 58, took his last breath.

Nobody had rung the alarm, yet it was ringing in the nurse's office and nobody can explain why the television started malfunctioning. A short while after my father's passing, the TV returned to normal. I later spoke to the nurse about the alarm going off and she said, it happened all the time at the point of somebody passing.

I am neither a believer or non-believer in an afterlife, but this has certainly opened my eyes to something out there that nobody can understand.
