I was riding my bike in the middle of the day in an area that had no trees (it was just planted farmland). There were no clouds I could see one hundred fifty yards full circle all the way around me.I remember helping an old man sit down under a tree in the grass and I was talking to him. We talked for a while, but I don’t remember what we talked about. I looked toward the ambulance and said that I have to help them get that body in the ambulance. I didn't know it was my body. I remember once in the ambulance it was moving and rocking and I had a hard time laying back down.I woke up at hospital asking where I was and what happened, I was knocked out for four hours.
