Nithin S NDE

Experience Description

I got food stuck in my respiratory tract whilst eating food with my mother and friend. I couldn't breathe and fell down, struggling for air. I felt separated from my body and went upwards. I saw a tunnel with light on other end and felt someone pulling me upwards. When I looked around the surroundings were very bright. I couldn't see anything because of the light. I had a strong desire to return to my body, because I could hear my mother crying for me far below. With all my effort, I gasped some air and the food moved out of the tract. I immediately got the feeling of being back inside my body.
