People have visions they are convinced are real of being abducted by aliens who have sex
with them and/or stick things in them.
Back in the past when people hadn't thought of aliens yet they used the think they got
abducted by witches.... who had sex with them, and so on.
People can and do hallucinate all kinds of things, especially when given drugs and/or are
in a highly stressed state.
During surgery this kid would have been given all kinds of drugs, plus the chemicals his body
was putting out, or lacking, due to him nearly dying.
Many people hallucinate all kinds of things during such experiences.
Thus, this can't be taken as evidence FOR anything that they see in such situations.
There is no way of determining the validity of such visions.
This kid gets told that when you die you go to a wonderful place with magic angels who have
wings and when he nearly dies he hallucinates just such a place, which I am sure was very comforting.
It just isn't evidence, let alone proof, that such a place exists.
