Oct 2, 2011 From [contactmusic.com/news]. Former Bond girl Jane Seymour remembers an out-of-body-experience as she was fighting for her life during a health scare in Europe.
The British actress was in Spain shooting her role as soprano Maria Callas in 1988 movie Onassis: The Richest Man in the World when she fell ill - and her treatment at a local medical centre took a turn for the worse. Seymour believes that during the near-death experience, she floated out of her body and saw doctors administering treatment.
She tells Britain's Sunday Express,"I was filming in Madrid when I got a very bad cold. A doctor suggested a shot of antibiotics but unfortunately the nurse put a massive dose into a vein and I went into anaphylactic shock. "Mercifully I was resuscitated but there was a period where I left my body and clearly saw this man screaming on the telephone and my naked body lying on the bed with syringes in my backside."
Excerpt here - I literally left my body. I had this feeling that I could see myself on the bed, with people grouped around me. I remember them all trying to resuscitate me. I was above them, in the corner of the room looking down. I saw people putting needles in me, trying to hold me down, doing things. I remember my whole life flashing before my eyes, but I wasn’t thinking about winning Emmys or anything like that. The only thing I cared about was that I wanted to live because I did not want anyone else looking after my children.
