A doctor claims he had an out-of-body experience while undergoing life-saving surgery. Dr Rajiv Parti was rushed into the emergency room at UCLA Medical Center on Christmas Eve in 2010 after complications removing his pancreatic cancer. Medics had given him a catheter to wear since he lost control of his bodily functions.

But within hours, he had developed sepsis. His groin became red, swollen, sore, and he had a 105-degree fever. The next day, after being sedated overnight with morphine, he was wheeled into the operating room. It was in that moment that he witnessed what he believes was ‘the afterlife’. CONTINUE
