Tommy S's NDE
8-8-02 I was going to do a simple task that I had done before several times before that was to build up a small place in a chipper throat that was worn down that was causing wood slabs to hang and not feed into the chipper so after the mill shut down for the day I assigned other workers to do other chores so we could all go home early because it was such a hot and very humid day in Louisiana.
After performing all safety tasks I proceeded into the small throat of the chipper to make the weld to build up the place where the problem was after crawling in there I realized I had put my ground in the wrong place and I needed my slag hammer so I started to crawl backwards to get out when a naked place in the stinger lead contacted the metal trough that I was laying in. I was soaking wet with sweat and the electricity went in my arm and stomach and would not let me go ,I could yell or anything to get away and I could not breath so basically I suffocated to death and my heart stopped. and suddenly remembered I had done every I could now it was in the lord's hands so I started praying for God to help me. I saw this tunnel of white light drawing closer and closer and I was not afraid or in pain anymore, all I felt was peace .
Later I woke up briefly
to vomit in the ambulance and there were angels attending me all in white, when
I made mention of this later to the nurses they told me it was not us we all
have on purple scrubs. and when arriving in the hospital I was still unconscious
but I could see my self from above the table with my wife there hold my hand and
IV's in me and covered with ice and doctors and nurses every working on me.
