Watson, Lyall - Goes out of body in car crash
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
The Romeo Error – Lyall Watson
While travelling with a safari group in Kenya, my vehicle skidded and overturned on a dusty bush track. It rolled over twice before coming to rest, poised precariously on the edge of a dry storm water gully.
I found myself standing outside the small bus, looking at the head and shoulders of a young boy in the party who had been pushed halfway through the canvas roof on the last roll and would be crushed if the vehicle fell any further-as it seemed bound to do.
Then, without pause, I recovered consciousness in the front seat of the bus, rubbed the red dust out of my eyes, climbed through the window and went round to help the boy free himself before the battered vehicle settled itself into its final resting position.
My memory of the details "seen" while still unconscious is very vivid and there is no doubt in my own mind that my vantage point at that moment was detached from my body; but even a personal experience of this kind remains remote from any tangible scientific explanation.
