Details:

EVENT that triggered the OBE: surgery
SUMMARY of the experience: Pam Reynolds Lowery was an American singer-songwriter. In 1991, at the age of 35, she had a near-death experience (NDE) during a brain operation. Her NDE is one of the most notable and best documented in NDE research. During "standstill" operation, Pam's brain was found "dead" by all three clinical tests - her electroencephalogram was silent, her brain-stem response was absent, and no blood flowed through her brain which left her clinically dead. Interestingly, while in this state, she encountered the "deepest" NDE of all.
PHYSICAL REALITY EVIDENCE:
She made several observations about the procedure which later were confirmed by medical personnel as surprisingly accurate. These include a clear description of the medical instruments as well as specific things said by people in the operating room.
LESSONS learned by the Experiencer:
"I saw many. many people I knew. And many I didn't know but knew I was somehow connected to them. There was a bright light and I asked if that was God. I was told no, that the light is what happens when God breathes."
SUBJECTIVE EVIDENCE (Impact on Experiencer's Life): Life Changing
