What It Feels Like to DIE: People Who Have Narrowly Escaped Death Describe Their ‘Last Moments’ – from a Deep Sense of Calm To the ‘Worst Loneliness’

DownloadDeath is inevitable. Every person who has ever existed, does exist, or will exist must someday come face to face with the hideous visage of the Grim Reaper. For most, the existence of an afterlife is an unknown. Whether it actually exists or in what form is a question pondered by man throughout the ages. For a select few though, those who have watched the creeping shade of Death stalk a little too close, the answer is clearer. Christopher Mooney, once certain he was seconds from death, described the experience as one of the most peaceful moments of his life. Kiara St. Clara, after suffering anaphylactic shock, described her near-death experience as a time of utter darkness and being totally alone. Whether destined for fire and brimstone or the pearly gates, most have some curiosity about the possibility of existence after death. A few lucky, or perhaps unlucky, souls have had the rare opportunity to get a glimpse through the curtain separating life and death.
