A doctor has relived the moment she ‘died’ after a horror accident in new Netflix series, Surviving Death. 

The documentary series looks into near-death experiences and what people go through when they temporarily die before being brought back to life. 

In it, Dr Mary Neal, a mum-of-four from New York, relives her ‘death’, where she was pulled underwater during a kayaking accident in Chile back in 1999. 

Rather than a scary experience, Dr Mary explained that she felt a sense of calm and felt she was protected by ‘spirits’ in an event that changed her life forever. 

‘I was not breathing. My torso was absolutely plastered to the front deck of the boat and I could feel my bones breaking,’ she said of the horrific incident.

‘I thought, “I should be screaming” but I wasn’t. I felt no pain, no fear, no panic. I felt more alive than I’ve ever felt.’

‘I could feel my spirit peeling away from my body, and my spirit went up towards the heavens,’ she said. ‘I was immediately greeted by a group of … somethings. I don’t know what to call them. People? Spirits? Beings?

‘I didn’t recognise any of them but they had been important in my life somehow, like a grandparent who died before I was born.

‘They were so overjoyed to welcome me and greet me and love me.’

Suffering horrific injuries including multiple broken bones, torn ligaments and saturated lungs, Mary was technically dead for more than half an hour as her fellow explorers struggled to get to her due to the rapid waters. 

‘My body was bloated and purple and I had fixed eyes,’ she said. There’s no doubt in my own mind that I was physically dead but I watched from the entrance to the dome structure as they started CPR and I could still hear them.’ 

Miraculously, not only was Mary revived, she had suffered no long term brain damage from her brush with death. 

Around 10-20% of people whose heart stops have claimed to experience a form of life after death, with neuropsychologists unable to explain why there is such an expansion of consciousness after even temporary deaths. 

But Mary says it’s changed her life: ‘People in science tend to think you can’t believe in anything supernatural.

‘When I went off to medical school, I would have defined death as death, physical death. But my near death experience changed my definition of death significantly

‘I don’t believe that we know everything.’ 

Surviving Death is available now on Netflix.
