Tense Oakland standoff ends with barricaded suspect’s arrest

Family uses near-death experience to comfort others

Landon Whitley was in the backseat of the family’s Pontiac Sunfire on a quiet Sunday morning seven years ago when he and his family’s lives took a dramatic turn.

An ambulance slammed into the Sunfire, killing his father, severely injuring his mother and putting him at death’s door. Three times his heart stopped and three times he was revived.

Even though he was 8-years-old at the time, Whitley says he still can vividly remember dying and seeing “streets of gold” with Jesus and angels nearby.

Maybe his strangest memory is seeing his father and two siblings he never knew.

“My mom had two miscarriages before me that I had never known about, never heard about,” Whitley told Fox4 in Dallas. “I was able to see them.”

His mother, Julie Kemp, has written a book about her son’s memories in the hopes it will help others weather personal tragedies.

“These days I can thank God for giving me the strength to get through it,” Kemp told the station. “I didn’t see the strength when I was going through it – I saw the challenges and the hurt.”
