A Brownwood, Texas, teen claims he saw Jesus after he collapsed during gym class.
Seventeen-year-old Zack Clements, who attends Victory Life Academy, is described as a healthy outgoing athlete. However, last week while running in his P.E. class, and suffered sudden cardiac arrest. Clements was rushed to the hospital where doctors worked eagerly to revive him.
Clements was without a heartbeat for 20 minutes, and was later flown to Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, where he wouldn’t wake up until several days later, according to Fox8. Since then, Zack has been recovering fairly quickly. However, that isn’t the most shocking part of this story.

Zack claims, while he was out, that he saw and spoke to Jesus, who told him “everything would be alright.”
“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.
“I went up to him and he put his hand on my shoulder and he told me everything would be alright and not to worry. I was just calm and at peace.”
While his father, Billy Clements, says he knows it is a difficult story to grasp, he says it is the only thing that makes sense to him and his family — his son being revived was a miracle and an act of God.
“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.
“I’m just glad he decided to let me have my baby back,” added Teresa Clements, according to CBS DFW.

Zack’s family is hoping to raise money for his medical bills through a YouCaring fundraising page. They are also selling T-shirts on his behalf.
