A man who came back from the dead after visiting "both heaven and hell" will be in Manorbier tonight (Wednesday) to talk about his incredible experience.

Ian McCormack was scuba-diving in Mauritius when he was stung by a deadly box jellyfish. He was taken to hospital where he was pronounced clinically dead. Fifteen minutes later he astounded doctors and nurses as he came back to life.

In that time, he says an out-of-body experience had taken him to both hell and heaven, from where he says he was given the choice by God to return to earth to tell his mother that he was dying and that he had answered her prayers by putting his faith in God.

Mr McCormack now travels the world speaking about his experience.

When he last visited Pembrokeshire 16 years ago he attracted a large crowd.

"We are hoping for an equally good response this time," said Pastor Jonathan Fiddy of Emmanuel Church, Manorbier, where Ian will speak at 7.30pm tonight. "Ian had no religious faith at the time, but the words of the Lord's Prayer came to him as he lay dying. It really is an incredible story, and one that he tells all over the world."

Emmanuel Church can be found off the A4139 at Manorbier, and admission to the talk is free. For more details, call 01834 871975.
