'Heaven Is For Real' Boy Details Near-Death Experience
By ETonline Staff
Colton Burpo, whose story has become the basis for a best-selling book and new movie, sat down with ET and detailed the near-death experience that has touched millions of lives.
Heaven is For Real recounts what Colton calls his journey from heaven and back.
"First of all, there's trees, there's water, there's grass, there's angels," Colton told ET's Rob Marciano. "There's everything there. ...Heaven is so much better than how they use it in the movie."
Now 15, Colton's vision came at age four during emergency surgery. Colton's parents Todd and Sonja were skeptical of their son's story until he began telling them things about their lives that he couldn't possibly know.
