WATCH: Woman Recounts Life After Death

Psychotherapist Mary Jo Rapini claims she witnessed a glimpse of the afterlife after unexpectedly suffering an aneurysm at a gym. Following three days in intensive care, Rapini's condition became critical. As doctors struggled to save her life, Rapini reports to have seen a "bright luminescence," leading to a "beautiful room" where "God held me and called me by name."

Rapini was joined on the Today Show by Dr. Jeffrey Long, who conducted a study of near-death experiences among children. According to Dr. Long, strong consistencies in accounts of near-death experiences suggests that there is, in fact, an afterlife.
