This article struck a chord with me because of my own near-death experience. I fell in the shower and banged my head. The next thing I knew, the EMTs were standing over me and, as I later learned, my blood pressure was dropping rapidly. If they hadn't intervened, I would have died.
During this experience, I felt extremely peaceful. I expected to die any minute, but the thought did not upset me. That sense of peacefulnes was what I most remember about the episode.
