    I was swimming in a pool with some friends

    when I was 12 years old. My one friend couldn't swim and went to the deep end. I went to help her but she was scared and held on to both of my arms so I could no longer swim. We started to sink and I was struggling to get her off of my arms to get us to the top of the water...

    Fifteen years ago I was hospitalized

    for complications in my 7th month of pregnancy. My nurse set my i.v. drip of magnesium sulfate (to stop contractions) too high. I fought to stay awake all night because I had to concentrate to breathe. I could not move or speak. I decided to let go and just rest. I was there...

    Once I went hiking with my cousins

    and we were really high on a mountain in Catskills,New York and I went to get something on a cliff and I almost fell but thank goodness my 14 year old cousin held me. I was really happy that he was there or I would've been dead.

    Skiing into a black pist,

    hurting hidden black ice, and only being saved by a net that was really old already. Thanks to it, I did not fell from 50 meters. I wasn't really in pain or what for this, but I think a bit less luck would have killed me.

    Not Once, But Twice

    I have had two near death experiences. Once when I was a little girl, and the other time about six years ago. Although it's been a long time since the first incident, I still remember it well. When I was young I had very bad asthma, and when it acted up it made me sick. One day I...

    It was many years ago,

    yet I still remember the experience vividly. I was ''code blue'' for two minutes. I felt a very peaceful floating experience as I looked down on my body; however, when I woke up, I felt a sense of urgency, realizing I was not through with my earthly life.

    More of a close call than a near death experience really. I had been in a holiday parade with two of my friends and we were walking back to our car. To get there we had to cross a relatively uncrowded street. My friends crossed before me and were waiting on the other side. I...
