The websites for CNN and Fox News Insider present accounts by people of various ages and socioeconomic levels who report they died and visited heaven. Out-of-body experiences are common in such cases, according to the International Association for Near-Death Experiences.
Some reports include seeing, hearing or watching activities, all from outside the body. The stories include deceased loved ones telling them to return to life. Some of the individual stories include seeing a bright light, the sensation of moving toward the light, and an overwhelming sensation of love and warmth. Some who did not believe in Heaven before the event say they emerged as believers.
