A MAN who "died" after being repeatedly stung by a jellyfish and then came back to life visited Watford on Friday to talk about his experiences.

Mr Ian McCormack, from New Zealand, was scuba diving at night in the Indian Ocean 17 years ago when he was stung several times by a deadly box jellyfish.

He was taken to hospital, certified dead and taken to the morgue.

While lying on a table he came back to life, just before someone was about to cut him open.

Previously not a religious man, Mr McCormack is now interested in trying to understand God, Heaven and Hell.

He came to watford's Moathouse Hotel in St Albans Road in the event sponsored by The Ark Community Church, which is based in Woodland Drive, Watford.
