Science is yet to prove the existence of an afterlife, but many people claim to already know life goes on after death. One of these people is Van who claims to have had a life-changing experience after temporarily dying 26 years ago. According to Van’s testimony, he collapsed dead for about 30 minutes after a drugs overdose in 1994.
And though he claims to have died, he has vivid memories of what happened next.
Van said: “Immediately I fell through the earth as if the earth were no longer solid and I were sky diving or something.
“I do not really know how to put this experience into words as there is nothing I can draw upon to explain it except to say that I literally fell through the soil, rocks, minerals, water, etc.
“It was not so much a tunnel as just literally passing through the solids, which at this point were anything but solid.”
After falling down for a long time, Van eventually landed on the floor of a mysterious hallway.
Confused and panicked, he tried to find his way out of the otherworldly realm, which he later came to realise was hell.
He saw many doors in the hallway, each with a person inside that was tasked with an arduous punishment of some sorts.
In one room, for instance, a woman was scrubbing a dirty toilet for all eternity.
Eventually, Van claims to have come across a man who identified himself as Satan.
He said: “I immediately stood up and said to him I had to leave and that I should not be here.
“Under normal circumstances, I would dismiss such a person as a lunatic, however, given what I had seen thus far and given what I was feeling inside I half-believed this man.
“I ran out of the room and began running down the hallway again… the endless hallway.
“It felt futile but I was scared and continued running. I could hear the man laughing behind me.”

Eventually, Van woke up and saw his friends surrounding him.
He was told he was out cold for about 30 minutes and did not breath the whole time.
Medical experts call incidents like these near-death experiences (NDEs).
However, most reject the notion NDEs are supernatural and instead suggest they are part of the process of dying.
One plausible theory suggests NDEs are hallucinations caused by a lack of oxygen reaching the brain.
Dr Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City, said: “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.”
