I had the pleasure of chatting with David about his NDE and you can watch the video below. Near Death Experiences have fascinated me for over 35 years. I first started to read about them after the tragic death of a friend of my brother's who died at just age 25. Since then I have read hundreds, if not thousands of stories. One of my favourite websites is and I have also been published on that site with my own experience of having a probable NDE under anaesthetic.

David Ditchfield's experience is exceptional. I hope you enjoy.

David Ditchfield Bio

David Ditchfield is an artist, composer and author. In 2006, he was dragged under a speeding train in a freak accident. As the surgeons fought to save him, he had a profound Near-Death Experience. He later realised that he had acquired astonishing new abilities. The first, an ability to create dramatic paintings of what he’d seen in the Afterlife. The second, the ability to compose classical music, despite being unable to read or write any musical notation. His debut symphony premiered at a sell-out orchestral concert to a standing ovation. He has since composed further classical works, also premiered at sell out performances and continues to paint and compose in Cambridge, UK.
