Experience Description

I was in a school trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina with all my schoolmates. The bus driver lost control. The bus derailed and in the fall, I banged my head. When I was able to open my eyes, I saw a very intense blue light. After I saw it far away, I started to pass through a tunnel. At the same time I was walking, I was remembering all the moments I lived with my brother. When I reached again the light, I went through it again and I saw my brother (he died four years ago). I hugged him and after crying for some minutes, he looked at me and told me that I had not to cry for his death. That he died because it was his time and I had to live without laments. That he was fine there and that he was always taking care of me from that place. Suddenly, all started to back down and I was able to open my eyes, I was in the hospital with some doctors looking at me with an amazed face. Then, when I was recovered, they told me that I was in coma for two weeks. They practiced some handling to revive me and that they thought I was dead until I said a name. They came close to me and saw that I opened my eyes. The name I said was my brother's name.
