The oldest known medical report of a near-death experience has been discovered. You never know what you will find at those antique shops. You can read the article here . The Resuscitation article (there is a link in the article) not only describes the report but also evaluates the NDE using the Greyson criteria. The reported NDE obtains a score of 12/32. A score of more than 7 is considered a positive NDE.
