This is a true story of a man who suffered full cardiopulmonary arrest and brain death but came back to life again 30 minutes after having confirmed dead.
Tsuruhiko Kiuchi (born 1954) is a Japanese comet hunter and writer.
Tsuruhiko Kiuchi (born 1954), a Japanese comet hunter and writer.
As a comet hunter, Kiuchi discovered Comet Cernis-Kiuchi-Nakamura (1990b) and Comet Tsuchiya-Kiuchi (1990i).
Kiuchi also rediscovered Comet Metcalf-Brewington (1906VI=97P/1906 V2) and Comet Swift-Tuttle (109P/Swift-Tuttle).

Before the rediscovery, it was predicted that the Comet Swift-Tuttle would return between 1979 and 1983, but it didn’t show up.
In 1990-1992, comet hunters around the world usually calculated cometary orbits using a computer and spotted a comet on a photographic plate.
However, Kiuchi calculated cometary orbits using a handy calculator and spotted comets with a large binocular telescope in Mt. Yatsugatake.

Thus, Kiuchi became famous as a Japanese amateur astronomer hunting comets around the world.
By the way, Kiuchi is also well-known for his amazing near-death experience.
Before he became a comet hunter, Kiuchi worked for Japan Air Self-Defense Force as a flight dispatcher of aeronautical operational control in Hyakuri Air Base in Omitama, Ibaragi, Japan.

Hyakuri Air Base
At the age of 22, when he finished a night work in the airport control tower of the air base, Kiuchi was struck down with excruciating pain in his abdomen.
He was diagnosed with superior mesenteric artery duodenal obstruction which was known as a critical illness.
At that time, no one had ever survived the disease before.
However, 30 minutes after having pronounced dead, Kiuchi miraculously revived.
It is the only example in Japan that the resuscitation after having confirmed dead was recorded in the medical chart.
Therefore, the Kiuchi’s case was reported as a rare instance in the Japanese Association of Medical Sciences.
Surprisingly, after he revived, Kiuchi told doctors an amazing near-death experience of seeing a tunnel like cave, a huge river, a field of flowers and the reunion with deceased relatives.
Later, Kiuchi published some books about the amazing near-death experience and those books hit the bestseller list in Japan.

By the way, Kiuchi obtained a teleporting ability through the near-death experience.
Here, I will introduce Kiuchi’s amazing teleportation experiment during the near-death experience.
Kiuchi Became a Ghost
After Kiuchi came back from the mysterious world, he found himself on the hospital bed.
Kiuchi noticed that his mother was sitting next to him and his father was taking a nap at the bedside.
Kiuchi wondered about the near-death experience he had just now.
What was that strange experience?
Did I have a dream?
Did I come back to life again?
At that time, Kiuchi realized that he was free of severe pain which he had felt in the entire body before.
Kiuchi had a clear sensorium at that time.
So, he could not believe that he did not feel any pain.
Thus, Kiuchi tried to push a call button in his hand to report the strange phenomenon to the doctor.
However, there was no strength in his hand.
Furthermore, Kiuchi found that there was no beat of his heart and he did not breathe at all.
Nevertheless, he did not feel suffocated for some reason.
Suddenly, his mother looked into his face and shouted,
Oh! Tsuruhiko is dead!
His mother shook his body violently.
Then, she raised his father from sleep and things got quite hectic.
All that time, Kiuchi was watching over the situation.
He had a little strange feeling.
On the other hand, his father was totally upset.
So, Kiuchi spoke to his father to soothe him.
I’ll be okay, Dad.
But, Kiuchi found his father unresponsive to his words.
So, Kiuchi raised his body on the bed and spoke to his father again.
Are you listening, Dad?
But, his father did not look him in the eye.
His father looked at his stomach, not his face.
I’m here, Dad!!!
Kiuchi rose from the bed to stand up.
But, when he looked back at the bed, Kiuchi found his body still lying in bed.
After getting out of bed, his conscious mind was in front of his father.
Nevertheless, his body was still lying in bed.
What’s … ?
Kiuchi got confused by that unexpected development.
Interestingly, it turned out later that his father heard his words at that time.
Actually, after Kiuchi came back to life, his father said to him,
Actually, I heard your words at that time.
‘I’ll be okay.’
So, I believed you would survive, because you told me you would be okay.
Kiuchi was surprised to hear the words.
His father felt the spirit of his son!
In other words, Kiuchi became a ghost at that time!
Kiuchi Teleported to His Mother
After Kiuchi was confirmed dead, it was just chaotic in the hospital room.
A nurse rushed into the room and put on an oxygen mask on the face of Kiuchi’s body lying in bed.
Another nurse jumped on top of his body and gave cardiac massage.
At that time, Kiuchi noticed that his mother has gone somewhere.
Where’s she gone?
Amazingly, the moment Kiuchi thought of his mother, he teleported to another place.
His mother tried to call a relative from a phone booth near the hospital entrance.
Kiuchi was surprised to find himself standing right beside her.
His mother was so upset that she had difficulty dialing the telephone number.
Actually, she misdialed repeatedly.
Kiuchi looked over her shoulder at her address book and said,
The correct number is 0X-XXXX-XXXX!
Kiuchi taught his mother the relative’s phone number.
But, it appeared that she did not hear what he was saying.
After a while, his mother could get through to the relative and said,
My son died just now!
To hear that, Kiuchi said loud right in her ear,
No! I’m not dead!
I’m still alive, Mom.
But, his mother did not respond to his call at all.
Unlike his father, she did not notice the presence of his spirit.
Kiuchi Teleported to His Sisters
Then, Kiuchi wondered how his sisters were doing at that time.
The moment Kiuchi thought of his sisters, he teleported to another place.
Kiuchi found himself sitting on the backseat of a car that his brother-in-law was driving.
Kiuchi was sitting between his two sisters.
They were talking about his funeral.
To hear that, Kiuchi could not resist yelling at them.
No! I’m not dead!
I’m still alive!
But, like his mother, they also did not respond to what he was saying.
Kiuchi became puzzled by such an unexpected development, because he realized that he had an uncanny ability to teleport freely anywhere he wants to go.
The more he thought about it, the more confused he got.
Then, Kiuchi tried to think of the hospital room where his body was lying in bed.
As Kiuchi expected, he teleported back to the room instantly.
In the room, a number of doctors and nurses were in a bustle around the bed in which Kiuchi’s body was lying.
They made a desperate attempt to give emergency medical treatment to his body.
Kiuchi was just watching the situation from behind them.
Kiuchi Tried a Teleportation Experiment Using His Friends
At that time, Kiuchi came up with something more interesting.
I might be able to do some experiment using my friends!
Kiuchi’s friends lived in his hometown of Nagano, which was located about 300 kilometers (186 miles) away from the hospital in Ibaragi.
Thus, it took at least about 4-hour drive from the hospital to his friends.
However, if Kiuchi actually has an ability to teleport anywhere, he should be able to teleport to Nagano instantly.
If I can observe what my friends are doing in Nagano, it will later become some evidence showing that the spirit can teleport to a distant place instantly!
That was the idea of Kiuchi’s teleportation experiment.
Thus, he decided to visit his friends in Nagano.
Kiuchi pictured one of his friends in his mind.
At that moment, Kiuchi teleported to the gas station run by that friend.
It was located along a national highway where the pastoral scenery was spread around.
In the office of the gas station, the friend had a lively chat with the two of his other friends.
They were sitting around a heater talking about their old days and about how had their mutual acquaintances been recently.
Kiuchi joined them and laughed out loud together.
However, they looked like they were not aware of his presence at all.
Then, Kiuchi looked outside and saw a long line of cars waiting for the light to change on the highway.
At that time, Kiuchi decided to try a little experiment involving one of the friends.
Kiuchi climbed into the friend’s mind and then sent an image to his brain that Kiuchi was the driver of one of the cars on the highway.
Suddenly, the friend pointed to the car and called out,
Surprisingly, the other two friends also waved at the car.
They saw the same illusion created by Kiuchi.
It might have been a kind of group hypnosis.
Then, one of the friends started running out toward the car.
At that time, the light turned green and the car sped away.
They got angry, because they were obsessed with an idea that the driver of the car was Kiuchi and thus they felt totally ignored by Kiuchi.
They were so angry that they abused Kiuchi in a loud voice.
However, the driver was a totally different person and did not look similar to Kiuchi at all.
So, it was indeed a strange phenomenon.
Kiuchi Verified the Teleportation Experiment
Later, after discharge from the hospital, Kiuchi visited the friends in Nagano again.
Kiuchi wanted to verify the teleportation experiment of the day when he teleported to the friends during the near-death experience.
So, Kiuchi visited the friend running the gas station.
However, as soon as he took a look at Kiuchi, he got very angry .
You were driving past here, weren’t you?
Why didn’t you stop by here to see me?
So, Kiuchi asked him,
When was that?
It was April 10.
That day, the two of my friends visited here!
So, I remembered that well!
By a curious coincidence, on that day, Kiuchi fell critically ill in the hospital in Ibaragi.
Thus, Kiuchi said,
No, I didn’t come back in Nagano that day.
The friend stared at Kiuchi with a puzzled looking face.
Huh? Am I just mixing things up?
But, the driver looked just like you!
He seemed to remain unconvinced.
Furthermore, he told Kiuchi his mysterious experience.
After they saw the vision of Kiuchi, they all had a bad headache.
Furthermore, the next day, they were all sick in bed with the headache almost all day.
It’s unthinkable that healthy young men in their 20s were all sick with a headache on the same day.
So, Kiuchi thought,
It could be related to the fact that I showed them an illusion.
Kiuchi verified that during the near-death experience, he actually teleported to the friends in Nagano which was 300 kilometers away from the hospital.
In this way, his amazing teleportation experiment was successful!
No One Could Understand Kiuchi
Then, Kiuchi took the courage to talk to the friend about his amazing near-death experience.
On that day, I was under critical condition in the hospital in Ibaragi.
But, my spirit teleported here for some reason.
The friend listened to Kiuchi curiously at first.
But, he gradually gave Kiuchi a suspicious look.
At last, he strongly denied Kiuchi’s near-death experience.
That can’t be true!
Hold on, I think you’ve got it wrong!
Since then, the relationship with the friend became awkward.
No matter how much Kiuchi tries to be friendly to the friend, he is always cautious about whether he is being brainwashed.
This bitter experience made Kiuchi think,
I should not reveal my near-death experience to anyone, no matter how close they may be.
It’s useless to say anything, since they don’t believe me!
On the contrary, they might think I went crazy!!!
That is the reason why Kiuchi did not tell anyone his amazing near-death experience as long as about 20 years.
* * * * * * * * * * * *
Someday, you may hear someone’s voice in your ear, even though nobody is there.
Perhaps, he or she teleported to you to tell something to you during the near-death experience, just like Kiuchi did.
