When I blacked out in hospital I then heard a voice saying he has gone. I then felt no pain. After some seconds, I felt weightless and was floating. I then heard a voice calling me saying, ‘Peter.’ Then she called me again a bit louder. I asked her ‘Is this it? Is this what happens next? She then said to me, ‘You can come with me now Peter. Everything is going to be fine.’ I looked for where the voice was coming from. Then there was a great white light in front of me. She then called me again saying, ‘Peter everything is going to be fine, you can come with me now.’ I then said, ‘No I have to go back.’ She said, ‘Why do you have to go back?’ I said, ‘My wife was on her own.’ She said, ‘Then it's fine, she will be okay. Don't worry.’ I said, ‘No, I have to go back. She is on her own and she needs me.’ Then the light faded. I was coming around and came back to consciousness.
