David Ditchfield - I Was Dragged By A Train and Died
David Ditchfield is an artist, composer, and author.
In 2006, he was dragged under a speeding train in a freak accident. As the surgeons fought to save him, he had a profound Near-Death Experience. He later realized that he had acquired astonishing new abilities. The first, an ability to create dramatic paintings of what he’d seen in the Afterlife. The second, the ability to compose classical music, despite being unable to read or write any musical notation. His debut symphony premiered at a sell-out orchestral concert to a standing ovation. He has since composed further classical works, also premiered at sell-out performances, and continues to paint and compose in Cambridge, UK. His book, SHINE ON, which tells his remarkable story, is out now.
