Having received some admiring and positive commentrs on the previously posted quotes of Kerry Packer, here is another...
In 1990 Kerry Packer suffered a heart attack whilst playing golf at Warwick Farm and was clinically dead for 6 minutes. He was saved only by the fact that an ambulance was fortuitously passing by. Even more fortuitously, the ambulance contained a defibrillator. Without that, the ambos would not have been able to revive him. He subsequently paid half the cost of fitting all ambulances in NSW with defibrillators, the State Government picking up the other half. The machines became known as "Packer Whackers".
Some time later Packer was approached by a person writing a story on after-death experiences. The person asked Packer what his experience had been, having been dead for six minutes. He replied:
"I've been to the other side, and let me tell you son, there's fucking nothing there."
