Ray NDE

Experience Description

After being hit by a jeep, thrown couple of feet away from the car's location, and falling on the concrete ground, I tried to get up as quickly but I couldn't as if I was fully paralyzed.

I had a dark view of what's across the street from me despite the bright lights. I saw bright colors and parts of my life in less than a second. After that vision, I saw everything as it really was including the people around, as I was conscious at every second of the experience. Only after that I felt the pain in my leg.
