Some report having seen light at the end of a tunnel, while others claim to have floated above their body, watching as medics save their lives.
But the reality of near-death experiences has always been debated.
Now scientists have discovered that a person’s consciousness continues to work after the body has stopped showing signs of life – meaning they have awareness of their own death.
And there is evidence to suggest someone who has died may even hear their own death being announced by medics.
The findings echo the plot line of the new Hollywood re-make of 90s cult horror Flatliners, starring Ellen Page.
In the film a group of young doctors embark on a dangerous experiment by taking turns to chemically induce their heart to stop and flatline to find out exactly what happens in the afterlife.
