Woman Says She Visited Heaven
ALTUS, Okla. (KFOR) – An Oklahoma woman said she spent nine minutes in heaven as she flatlined during a medical procedure.
Crystal McVea told KFOR-TV that it happened on Dec. 10th 2009 after she was admitted for a routine medical procedure.
An adverse reaction to medication sent the small town teacher and mother of four from Altus, Oklahoma into cardiac arrest.
Medical records have confirmed she flatlined, and she said she experienced heaven in this nine minute span of time.
“The moment my eyes closes there He was, two angels to my left, the most glorious tunnel of light that I could ever describe,” she said.
McVea said that prior to her experience, she had always questioned the authenticity of God and heaven.
“I made up my mind. There were two choices. One, God was real and He didn’t love me, or two, there was no God. And I would hold that doubt in my life until the day I died,” she said.
Some people have said her story contradicts scripture and others have said it’s merely an oxygen-starved brain causing hallucinations.
McVea has written a book about her experience, a New York Times bestseller called “Waking Up in Heaven: A True Story of Brokenness, Heaven, and Life Again.”
