Kid Brought Back From The Dead: I Saw Granny In Heaven
"A three-year-old boy brought back from the dead after his heart stopped beating for three hours has told how he saw his great-grandmother in Heaven. A three-year-old boy brought back from the dead after his heart stopped beating for three hours has told how he saw his great-grandmother in Heaven.
The youngster - who is named only as Paul - claimed he met his relative and she sent him back to Earth. Read More
Paul was playing by himself when he fell into a lake; the child`s grandfather found him some time later and dragged him to the shore. The tyke was taken to a hospital and he was clinically dead for three hours and 18 minutes before he woke up and started babbling nonsense about seeing his great-grandmother in heaven.
I don`t mean to make fun of the brat, but if I were clinically dead for hours and then suddenly came to, I would also be babbling nonsense. But in my case I would be telling everyone that I hooked up with Marilyn Monroe in heaven, and that I begged St. Peter not to send me back to Earth.
Why does everyone expect grandmothers to go to heaven? A woman could have been an arsonist and serial killer in her prime, but once she`s a grandmother everything is forgiven, and people expect her to go to heaven when she croaks.
This medical miracle doesn`t prove the reality of heaven, and I hope this poor kid is allowed to live a normal life. This incident isn`t a testament to the reality of the spiritual realm, it a remarkable demonstration of the resiliency of the human body.
