The famous Canadian actor is another celebrity who claims to have a near-death experience. In 1979, Sutherland was ill with meningitis. According to his claims the pain, fever and acute distress seemed to evaporate.

Sutherland saw himself floating above his body, surrounded by soft blue light. “I began to glide down a long tunnel, away from the bed … but suddenly I found myself back in my body. The doctors told me later that I had actually died for a time,” the actor said in an interview. 


Jason Statham


The “baddest” and “toughest” dude in all Hollywood could be dead now. Yep, Jason Statham almost died after truck brakes failed on set of The Expendables 3. The badass from Shirebrook had to leap from the wagon he was driving, seconds before it plunged 60ft into the sea


Johnny Depp


Johnny Depp nearly met his maker while shooting the Lone Ranger. During a stunt that went horribly wrong, “Jack Sparrow” slipped out of his saddle and underneath the hooves of the horse he was riding at a full gallop.
