Experience description:  

This was not an NDE on my part but a contact from my stepfather at the moment of his death.  He was in Georgia in intensive care with a heart attack.  I was in college class-(sociology)in Gulfport Mississippi.

I was sitting in class and suddenly got bone chilling cold like my blood went to ice. I got extremely panicked and felt like I was going to explode. It confused me but I knew something was wrong.

I couldn't take it anymore and excused myself from class and went to sit in the atrium.  I got dizzy and tunnel vision and sweaty in a cloud.  I got on my motorcycle and bolted for home like I was being pulled by an unknown force..It was confusing, I thought I was suddenly sick.

I ran to the door to my phone ringing and It was my mother calling to tell me Ralph my stepfather had just died. Then the feelings went away. I sat there confused for a while then it hit me.  It changed my outlook in death
