Bill D NDE
We were hunting about 20 miles out of town. I was stung hundreds of times by hornets. My last conscious recollection was my friend carrying me into the hospital. Then I suddenly was above myself looking on. I stuck with my body as they wheeled me into the emergency room. Then I was in the corner of the room looking down at my body as they worked on it. It was like floating and seeing all. I recall no pain just an interest in what was going on with my body. An injection was given to my body and then suddenly I was back in feeling terrible and throwing up. I never thought twice about it until later in years as I started hearing about these happenings I realized I too had experienced this.
