An 83-year-old man, George Pitso has explained that he never died even after he was in coma for 4 days, but instead he went to heaven.
DailySun SA reports that George who claimed he got to heaven was ordered to return to earth to tell people to pray to God only, as it was not his appointed time to die.
Recalling what happened to him after he fainted in February, Pitso said: “Doctors at Mamelodi Hospital told me that I was in a coma for four days. I saw many of my relatives who had died long ago. They were wearing white clothes,” Pitso said.
“A voice ordered me to return to earth and tell the people to pray to God only. But before I could return, I saw pastors from various churches and a deep hole. They told me they were there to bury me.
“I was scared and confused and saw a big rock rolling towards us. I ducked and fell. At that moment I fell from the hospital bed. I was shocked to find myself surrounded by a pastor and women from church.”
He said doctors declared him healthy and he was discharged without any medicine.
Health spokesman Vuyo Sabani said George spent 17 days at Mamelodi Hospital but did not say what he was suffering from.
