In 1944, world famous psychologist Carl Gustav Jung slipped on some ice and broke his foot. While in the hospital he suffered a heart attack. Jung hung on the edge of death as the doctors battled to save him. A nurse described Jung’s unconscious body as being surrounded by a strange glow. When he regained his senses, Jung spoke of a vivid series of visions. He believed he had experienced a near death experience, also known as an NDE.
