1205 Roy G NDE

Experience Description

I was riding my bike down a big hill, lost control, and hit my head on the curb. I remember looking at myself from above the trees. A warm golden light kept me safe and told me not to panic. Then I remember looking at myself very closely. Then I was back in my body and I could not remember who I was. A friend found me and took me to my house and my mom took me to the Emergency Room.
