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 alright 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.

    You people will say anything to get attention. Little liar, how do you see what did not exist. You seen Michelangelo’s cousin he painted just before you were revived.

    I believe him …. 24 years ago 2 of my children and I were in a house fire. I could not get either child out. My youngest of the 2 was in the worst condition and the doctors didn’t expect him to survive the night. I prayed like I never did in my life and asked GOD to let me keep him. If I had to spend the rest of my life caring for him, I would … just don’t take him from me. GOD spoke to me and told me ….As easily as I gave your children to you, I can take them from you!! I warned you time and time again! I gave you chance after chance! I will NOT warn you again!! I totally changed my life for my then 4 children and GOD let me keep my youngest another 22 years. He also gave me 3 more children one of which he took back. One Dec. 14, 2013 he called my son, who had been in the fire, home. I was and am so blessed to have those extra years with him. Blessed Be!!
