I was a recruit going through training for the Michigan State Police. We were in the gym for defensive tactics training. On that day we were learning the carotid choke hold (no longer taught). You had a partner and when you were the suspect you were suppose to tap the arm of your partner when you started to feel light headed.
My partner began to apply the choke hold. The next thing I experienced was darkness and a loud deep sound I can best describe as a deep vibration. I recall wondering at the time if it was my alarm clock (thinking I was back in college at the dorm). The darkness was then gone and I recall seeing the upper corner of the gym coming closer as if I were moving toward it. Then I recall looking down and seeing my partner holding up my slumped body. I would say I was off to the side about five feet and up about 5-6 about 10 foot off of the gym floor.
The next thing I recall was darkness again and hearing my name called over and over with the command of, recruit (actually my last name) stand up! Recruit stand up! Recruit stand up! I then recall opening my eyes and one of our instructors was standing in front of me looking like he was mad that I had gone out.
He then continued the
class as if nothing had happened. I remember standing there very confused about
the experience sensing something extraordinary had occurred but not knowing

Yes On the night my grandmother died (1985) I had come home from work and was watching the Tonight Show. My wife was already in bed. I heard my grandmothers voice call my name out twice. It seemed to me it was coming from the hallway off of the living room. I clearly recognized it as my grandmother but got up and went to the bedroom which was just off of the living room and asked my wife if she called out my name. She said no.
