I was out of coffee one morning.

That's amazing. How did you manage to pull through? What was the experience like? :popcorn:

The world was black and full of hate. Think WW3 on steroids.

I think these things can make you become a better person. But not without coffee! :roar:

I survived to tell the tale. I was BRAVE! :viking:
I know, I know, it's just that I don't know what should be there. :GA:
Could put some awesome Jack quote in there.

Might not have been death but it would not have been good.   I was on top of scaffolding three stories up laying on my back working on a ceiling when the builder taking down part of it on the other side of the room caused that half to fall and everything to shift.  The planks I was on ended up coming with in an inch of falling off also.  At least one of the planks that fell from the other side punched through the flooring into the basement

Sorting archeological stuff at the base of a quite high dike/levee when a car with a long trailer lost control on the road at the top of said dike. The combination started to "scissor". We had no time to run. Luckily the trailer swung the other way again and car and trailer ended in the water at the other side of the dike. The driver came out unharmed.

She didn't come back. Have posted about it here before, so didn't find any urgency in repeating. Also a bit curious of the intent of the thread title; wondering if the expectation is stories of close calls, or more along the lines of: there was a tunnel and a light. That's what near death experiences are, like Funwithmatches' story about her dad's out of body floating. Have died but not experienced anything like that.

You have died?
Yes.

Had two accidents before the age of six, one a skull fracture, the other an accidental drug overdose, resulting in two individual comas and one actual death.

It's hard to say, because of being so young, to know if it's real memory or knowing the story all my life. Though yes, do have memories, just no memory of death experience. Was playing hide and seek in the dark with cousins though don't remember running into anything. Had a lot of stomach problems as a kid and decided to seek meds on my own one day and took the wrong ones. Do recall taking the meds, but don't remember going back and taking more. Also remember waking up in the hospital because it really bothered me to be told I had been asleep for two weeks. The hospital seems like a real memory because it's not something someone else could have told me.

Girlfriend fell out the window of a car cruising and caved the back of her head in, was in a coma for weeks. I think they may have induced at the later stages just to keep her still, no one knew if she would make it during the first week.

She told me how she heard people talking to her on occasion and not much more, but she remembered one "dream" in particular  that was "so real it wasn't like a dream" where her cousin came up to the house on his quad...she was so happy to see him, she said she ran off the porch and hugged him tight, then went to climb on the back of the quad and go for a ride like always. He stopped her though, and said very seriously "you can't come this time", she protested, and he said firmly "NO!, you have to stay here, next time"...and then rode off. 

The kid had been dead for a couple years prior, some old coot didn't like him riding through the empty, un-owned, field in back of his house and shot him on the quad. He was 15.

Cool story. :)

Yeah. He was riding with a friend too. The guy just shot at both of them. I don't know who was on back, I think him. Hit him in the hip, I guess hit an artery, they didn't get there fast enough.
