The person, who only gave his name as Desmond, suffers from a condition known as Marfan Syndrome – a disorder which effects the connectivity tissue of the body.
Desmond also suffers from asthma and needed surgery for his Marfan Syndrome.
During the operation, he became short of breath due to his conditions and the doctors struggled to keep him alive.
At this point, he believes he crossed over to the other side.
Desmond says he left his body and could see himself on the operating table with his mother next to him, crying.
He wrote for near-death experience website NDERF.org: “In the middle of suffocating, I began to feel relaxed and thought, ‘I’m dying. This is it.’ Suddenly, I saw myself on the operating table.
“Then I saw my mother crying. I said, ‘I love you,’ but she couldn’t hear me.”
With the doctors struggling to revive him, Desmond says he fell deeper into what he called “the Dark Place” where he believes he heard the voice of God.
Desmond continued: “My time in the Dark Place was without emotion or thoughts, yet I was sentient. There was nothing to see, feel, or know in The Dark Place.
“I did not experience any emotions during the experience. I lost my personality, memories, and emotions. All of a sudden, a very loud voice spoke to me out of nowhere.
“The male voice loudly and slowly said, ‘God.’ I was then immediately resuscitated and put under a medically-induced coma.”
Desmond was in said coma for two weeks, and the “first thing I said when I woke up was, ‘I heard God!’”
Some researchers state these are normal phenomenon and not necessarily a sign of Heaven, Hell or an afterlife.
Dr Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City, told a recent Oz Talk: “People describe a sensation of a bright, warm, welcoming light that draws people towards it.
“They describe a sensation of experiencing their deceased relatives, almost as if they have come to welcome them. They often say that they didn’t want to come back in many cases, it is so comfortable and it is like a magnet that draws them that they don’t want to come back.
“A lot of people describe a sensation of separating from themselves and watching doctors and nurses working on them.”
Dr Parnia says there are scientific explanations for the reaction, and says seeing people is not evidence of the afterlife, but more likely the brain just scanning itself as a survival technique.
He said thanks to modern technology and science “death does not have to be limited to philosophy and religion, but it can be explored through science.
“They can hear things and record all conversations that are going on around them.”
