Back in the early nineties, I was digging a new silage trench with an old TD9. I was just finishing up for the evening, with a thunderstorm approaching. I was going up the left side of the trench about three feet form the edge when it collapsed under the right track. The loader slid sideways into the trench with the wall, hit the bottom and rolled over. I tried to grab the fuel cap and go over the back, but it pinned me from just above the knee to above my waist on my right side under the tool box. SWMBO wondered where I was about fifteen minutes later, and came down to find me trying to dig a rock out with a hitch pin that had my right leg still pinned under the tractor. She called the fire company, and they responded and transported me to shock trauma in Baltimore. They kept me for a week with a broken pelvis and tailbone, and extreme bruising- from my neck down. It was a walking fracture, but it took six months before I went back to work, and a year before I could do full duty again. It was close to two months before I could even start feeding again, and I was still on crutches at that point. And I still feel it every day now. My right leg and hip are always a bit sore, and I have trouble walking for any distance. Guess I've just learned to work through it....

Having a heart attack in the hospital ER...
Had a fatal arrythmia (heart stopped).
Had time to tell the nurse "I"m going...". I woke up, was being bagged, and about 10 people were looking down at me. Asked the nurse "what happened".
She said " we had to shock you to re-start your heart".
Thank God the nurses knew what to do.
No doctor in the building (except me).
Never saw the light (or dark).
Figure I"ve been given a second chance.

John, I posted above about my experience which was close to yours. I didn't see any light either. When told my Dad that he said "well, that's it, you're going to Hell."
Done my best since then to make sure I don't go there.
