Daily WOW: Teen boy dies and meets Jesus before revival

The Daily Catch - published on 11/25/16

We ran this story in a links batch earlier this week, but we thought that it was worth another look.

Zack Clements was a very athletic kid who is part of the football team, which made his collapse in P.E. class all the more surprising.

In the blink of an eye, the teenager went from being an active, healthy, and normal athlete at Victory Life Academy to laying lifelessly on the ground. For 20 minutes, Zack had no pulse and was “legally” dead. But then something happened that many people still cannot medically or scientifically explain. Zack’s pulse suddenly returned to normal and he was revived. Three days later, he awoke at Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth, TX, with no lasting effects from his terrifying ordeal.

If his sudden revival was not unusual enough, Zack claims that he met Christ while he was legally dead.

“I saw a man that had longish kind of ruffled hair with a thick beard. It didn’t take me long to realize this man was Jesus. I went up to Him and He put his hand on my shoulder and told me that everything would be alright. I was just calm, at peace.”
