FORT WORTH, Texas — A Texas teenager claims he saw Jesus seconds before he was revived.

Zack Clements, 17, collapsed last week while running during P.E. class at Victory Life Academy in Brownwood, Texas. He was rushed to the hospital where doctors worked to revive him.

Clements was reportedly without a heartbeat for 20 minutes, according to CBS Dallas/Fort Worth. He was eventually airlifted to Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth where he would not wake up until several days later.

While his quick recovery has been hard to believe, the story he is telling is equally amazing.

“When I was out those 20 minutes, I saw a man who had long ruffled hair and kind of a thick beard, and it didn’t take me long to realize that that was Jesus,”Clements said.

His family is convinced it was a miracle.

“I went up to him and he put his hand on my shoulder and he told me everything would be all right and not to worry,” he said.

The boy’s father, Billy Clements, said he knows it’s a difficult story to believe, but it’s the only thing that makes sense.

“For him to wake up and tell us something he experienced like that. It’s just you can’t explain it. It’s not humanly possible to explain it,” said Billy Clements.

    What’s the big deal? I one time smoked and drank with Humphrey Bogart before I woke up in a hospital. We all get what we believe, otherwise the Shawnee Prophet would’ve died from Alcohol poisoning.

    Disappointing that WGN can’t find actual news to report that is relevant to its audience and, instead, finds it necessary to fill space with a near-death experience story.

    I’m gunna call bogus. Its really unlikely that Jesus looked like we picture him with the beard and long hair. It even says in Corinthians for a man to have long hair is a disgrace. All in the kids mind for sure

    What he actually had was a hallucination that took the form of a fairytale that he believes in. It’s called a self-fulfilling prophecy.
