Following a “near-fatal” motorbike accident, a man known only William R has revealed what he feels were its religious ramifications. In a statement given to the Near Death Experience Research Foundation (NDERF), he revealed what he feels happened to him more than 40 years ago.
He said in a statement: “In the summer of 1978, I was fifteen years old.
God leaned over and put his hands down towards me, as you would a small child that you are about to pick up
“I was riding a motorcycle on a practice, motocross track and heading towards a double-jump that I had been over hundreds of times in the past.
“A voice told me that I must slow down. I ignored the voice and sped up even more.”
However, just before hitting the jump, he hit a rut causing him to lose control.
William said: “I was not able to regain control of the bike before landing.
“I landed head-first on the side of the second jump the when unconscious.”
And it was then the then-teenage William had a profoundly religious experience.
He said: “An individual can only be described as what must be an angel.
“This angel was about the size of a five or six-year-old girl, but she was very strong and very firm very authoritative.
“She was dressed in a robe-like garment and what looked like a golden crown on her head.
“As we grabbed each other’s wrist, she began flying upward.”
He then confided how they swiftly reached a heavenly realm.
William wrote: “Finally, we arrived at a place that was like we had passed through a threshold or barrier to reach it.
“It was like a light-golden, clouded place that was suspended in space and illuminated with a soft comfortable light.

“The feeling I got there was so wonderful.”
It was in the un-Earthly place he was given instructions.
And angel reportedly told him: “You must go back. You are a part of God’s plan, and if you stay here now, this is all there will be for you.”
Angels then took him “to a place where God was”.
William wrote: “He was sitting in a higher place in heaven.
“He was dressed in some off-white coloured robes. God leaned over and put his hands down towards me, as you would a small child that you are about to pick up.
“He said, ‘Come.’ I lifted my hands up to him. He took my hands in his, raised me up, and set me down in front of him.
“His hands were the largest, strongest, and toughest, yet softest, warmest, and gentlest hands. I was afraid to look at him.
“He laughed and said ‘You humans all have the same belief that you cannot look upon me.
“Your beliefs and your bible are not completely correct or complete, but they are the best you have and you must do the best you can with them.
“He seemed to be very pleased with us. I slowly looked up at him.
“He was very large. I would guess around ten feet tall, his hair and beard were a whitish-grey and He had a very pleasant face. I was almost breathless.”
The apparently religious experience ended when the teenager come-to in hospital with a broken vertebra in his neck.
However, although experiences such as William’s are common they provide no evidence of the afterlife.
Dr Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at New York’s Langone School of Medicine, said in a statement: “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.”
