Premonition? Rawalpindi Boy Writes Story Of His Accident Two Days Before Mishap

Rawalpindi, Dec 10 : Pakistan's Geo News channel has telecast the story of a 11-year-old student Asfandyar, who had written a school essay on a fictional accident, but he hardly knew that he would face exactly the same mishap two days later.

While in the story Asfandyar wrote he recovered and returned home, in reality, the boy died a painful death. 

Asfandyar was asked to write a short story in his school along with his other colleagues, titled The Accident. 

Asfandyaar wrote : "Last night I came back home from a party and fell asleep. The next morning was a school day. I woke up and found out that I had overslept. I quickly changed cloths(sic) without brushing my teeth and fetched (sic) a quick breakfast. I had noticed that Uncle Adil and little Jumairah already left without me. I didn't care if I had to go on foot. I dashed across the streeet at very speed to get to school. I heard the screeching of the car getting louder.  I jumped out of the way of the car but I didn't see the other car coming. The other car hit me and I knocked a few yards away. I could only feel pain all over my body. I couldn't open my eyes. I could only hear the ambulance siren, I being moved, I couldn't see who were with me there. I dozed off. When I opened my eyes I saw my mom and dad on the chairs beside my bed. When I looked at them, they said "you gave us quiet (sic) a fright Asfandyar." I went home after a day in the hospital. I felt happy that I was back home."

But this was not to be. The boy met an accident in a similar fashion two days later, on Sunday (Dec 5) and he succumbed to his injuries in hospital. The boy was hit by a racing car trying to avoid another racing car moving on the road.

Rationalists describes such incident as a mere coincidence and not a premonition of death, as supernaturalists believe.
Supernaturalists point out towards former Indian prime minister Indira Gandhi's last speech in Bhubaneswar, the day before her assassination, in which she had said that each drop of her blood would help in serving the nation. The next morning Indira Gandhi was shot by her bodyguards. Did Indira Gandhi know that her death was near?
