Cheating Death: Over the edge and back again

You've heard the term "near death' experience, but imagine having an actual death experience then coming back to tell the story.

That's what happened to a high school football referee. He collapsed on the field with no heartbeat for nearly three minutes. Watch as he tells our Dr. Sanjay Gupta what he saw as he slipped away to the other side.

Program Note: Join Dr. Sanjay Gupta as he examines the medical miracles that are saving lives in the face of death on “Cheating Death,” Sat. & Sun. 8 p.m. ET.

    Dr Gupta: I missed your first TV show on "Cheating Death" and when I turned into the 2nd night which was advertised for Sun, Oct. 18 at 8:00 pm EST it was not shown. Will the entire show be shown again on CNN? I have studied this for many years and have a deep interest in this subject. Also interesting is how many people who have died, communicate with loved ones through dreams and other ways after death. Each subject when they explain seeing someone that has passed over, have a "knowing" of what was communicated without actual talking to the desceased. I know of at least four communications with desceased love ones and the people that received these communications know their loved ones are happy and at peace.

    Must Read: Journey of Souls by Michael Newton, Ph.D Case Studies of Life between Lives "Why are you here on earth? Where will you go after death? What will happen to you when you get there?
    Many books have been written about past lives but there has been little about the ongoing existence of our souls as we await rebirth – until this startling and provocative book.
    When the author, a certified Master Hypnotherapist, began regressing his clients back in time to access their memories of former lives, he stumbled onto a discovery of enormous proportions: that it is possible to "see" into the spirit world through the minds eye of subjects who are in a hypnotized or super conscious state; and that clients in this altered state were able to tell him what their soul was doing between lives on earth. What you read in this book will shake your perceptions on death. And, YES, I am a DEVOUT Christian.
