No matter if you’re a devoutly religious or a convinced atheist person, you have to admit that this Texas teen’s story really makes you think about what you believe in.
Meet Zack Clements, a 17-year-old boy who, before recently, was just a normal, healthy high-school athlete. Clements was in a gym class at his school, Victor Life Academy in Brownwood, TX, when he collapsed and suffered cardiac arrest while running.
The boy was rushed to a hospital, where doctors were ready to pronounce him dead, as he had no pulse for 20 minutes. Then, in eerily similar circumstances as this man who suffered a heart attack and came back to life, Clements was suddenly revived. The hospital had Clements airlifted to a children’s hospital in Fort Worth, where he woke up several days later.
Although Clements‘ recovery can not be explained by medicine and felt completely miraculous, it’s what the teenager said when he woke up that caused his story to go viral. Clements says in the following video to CBS DFW that when he was “dead” for those 20 minutes, he “saw a man who had long ruffled hair and kind of a thick beard, and it didn’t take me long to realize that that was Jesus.” Just like this sick little girl, who fell from a tree and claimed she went to heaven, where Jesus healed her of all her medical problems, Clements claims has turned skeptics into believers and has left others completely baffled.
However, as Clements‘ father puts it in the video, “For him to wake up and tell us something he experienced like that. It’s just you can’t explain it. It’s not humanly possible to explain it.”
Do you believe Clements’ incredible story?
