The woman, who only introduced herself as Caroline, believes she caught a glimpse of the afterlife 15 years ago. Caroline went to hospital with life-threatening anaphylaxis, likely caused by an allergic reaction. Her face and neck had swollen and she was struggling to breathe.
After arriving in hospital, Caroline was taken resuscitation unit where she was given a bed.
Shortly after lying down, she went into full anaphylactic shock.
But her story did not end there as she has vivid memories of leaving her body.
Caroline said: “I was lying horizontally, in the same position as my body, but was a few feet above the actual hospital bed.
“I could see myself below, which was odd given that in my out of body state, I was facing the ceiling. I don’t understand how I could see below me.”
She then recalls seeing “an extremely intense, bright white light”.
The light was so intense Caroline described it as being brilliant.
As her body struggled with the anaphylactic shock, she was surrounded by a group of medical staff.
Caroline: “They were putting IV lines in both arms.
“There was a lot of shouting and barking of orders. CPR was also being performed.
“Despite all the chaos going on below me, the ‘second me’ above my body was very happy, calm, relaxed and peaceful.”
Caroline does not recall feeling anything despite the doctors and nurses trying to revive her.

She said: “The happiness and calmness I felt was in excess of anything I have felt before or since.
“I knew everything would all be fine. I saw nothing else.
“When they stabilised my physical body, I dropped back into it.”
A few hours after the incident, Caroline was discharged from hospitals.
The experience, which she described as entirely pleasant, has left her believing “an afterlife definitely exists”.
However, Caroline’s experiences are not entirely unique and some experts believe they can be explained through natural means.
Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) researchers Neil Dagnall and Ken Drinkwater said: “Despite several theories used to explain near-death experiences, getting to the bottom of what causes them is difficult.
“Religious people believe near-death experiences provide evidence for life after death – in particular, the separation of the spirit from the body.
“Whereas scientific explanations for near-death experiences include depersonalisation, which is a sense of being detached from your body.”
