AceShowbiz - Elizabeth Taylor could not forget how she stopped breathing for five minutes while undergoing a back surgery in 1962. The American-British actress was pronounced dead on the operating table and claimed to have gone through a tunnel towards a brilliant white light.
"I was pronounced dead once and actually saw the light. I find it very hard to talk about, actually, because it sounds so corny," the actress revealed to Larry King on CNN's "Larry King Live" about the incident that took place in '50s. Additionally, Taylor said that she met the spirit of her late husband Mike Todd, who died in a plane crash in 1958. He allegedly told her that she had work and life ahead of her, and he "pushed me back to my life."
"When I came to, there were about 11 people in the room. I'd been gone for about five minutes -- they had given me up for dead and put my death notice on the wall," she continued recalling. "I shared this with the people that were in the room next to me. Then after that I told another group of friends, and I thought, 'Wow, this sounds really screwy. I think I'd better keep quiet about this.' "
