I would like to share my story that happened to me about 4 years ago. I was working, as a sous chef, at a restaurant in Sterling Mass. On a busy weekend after serving a buffet. We were still a little busy and receiving the left over food back into the kitchen. I grabbed a piece of roast beef, rolled it up and ate it while working.
Well, it unrolled in my larynx. I tried to swallow it and then cough it up,
but neither worked. I ran out to the back where two co-workers were. They
started the hemlock which didn't work either. I remember going unconscious.
After that they started mouth to mouth and pushing on my chest to keep my heart going. They couldn't get a pulse on me for several minutes until the EMT's arrived. They transported me to the hospital in Clinton Mass where I was life flighted to UMass in Worcester, where I awoke about 7 hours later in ICU, all hooked up to machines. Just before I regained consciousness, I remember this great light all around me. It was extremely bright and thought it should be hurting my eyes, but it didn't. All I felt was this great sense of being at ease and love. All the doctors were very surprised I lived and more so that I wasn't mentally off because of being without oxygen to my brain for more that several minutes.
Also of my recovery and being discharged from the hospital within 2 days of this happening. I remember being out of my body and having a sense of being relaxed and total sense of love. I came back, I believe, to fulfill a task here and to set things straight before I go back to Heaven for good.
