Details:

EVENT that triggered the OBE: trauma
SUMMARY of the experience: Michaela was in a traffic accident that left her in a coma. While in the coma she traveled out of body.
PHYSICAL REALITY EVIDENCE:
While out of her body, Michaela traveled to the hospital cafeteria where she witnessed her father saying that he was going to go have a cigarette. She was surprised to see both her grandmothers say they would have one too, even though neither one of them had ever had a cigarette and would never have one again because it was not in their nature. However, after Michaela came out of her coma, her mother confirmed that the incident actually happened.
LESSONS learned by the Experiencer:
Michaela learned that we just have this one particular life on this earth at this time and it is up to us to make the most of it. Since her OBE, she has been more willing to try new things and take more risks.
SUBJECTIVE EVIDENCE (Impact on Experiencer's Life): Life Changing

Special Evidence

David points out how it seems very likely that Michaela must have witnessed them while out-of-body. The other David questions why Michaela didn't remember more details about her procedure, and Irene mentions that when she saw herself being operated on, she wasn't interested in being there either.
