A MAN who was in a serious car crash which each resulted in him temporarily dying claims that he has seen heaven and spoken to Jesus.
Landon Whitley was just eight-years-old when he was in a car crash which killed his father. Mr Whitley had to be resuscitated three times after the crash and was hooked up to life support for two weeks after severe head trauma resulted in him landing in a coma. To the doctors’ amazement, Mr Whitley had suffered no brain damage when he awoke two weeks after the crash.
Speaking now, 22 years after the crash, Mr Whitley told CBN he went to heaven all three times before being resuscitated, and saw his recently deceased father and friends there.
Mr Whitley said: "I remember being able to see my dad and his friend Olan Palmer who had passed away less than a month before he did, also in a car accident, and Olan's son Neil Palmer who had died on a 4-wheeler years before.
“And it was funny because I remember us all like standing in a square. Never one of us said a word to each other, but we were just all standing there.”
Life after death: Man meets Jesus in the afterlife in ‘proof of HEAVEN’
Mr Whitley said: "It was almost as if like a preview of a movie to where you only get to see certain bits and pieces of things. Jesus came to me and told me that I have to go back to earth and be a good Christian and tell others about him.
"I just want people to realise that Jesus is real, there is a heaven, there are angels. And to follow his word and the Bible, and life does get better at the end.”
Some researchers state these visions are normal phenomenon and not necessarily a sign of 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.
Mr Whitley says he went to heaven three times
“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.
