The boy who went to heaven

When four-year-old Colton Burpo had a burst appendix in 2003, his parents thought he might die and were praying hard for his recovery when the miracle happened and he survived. Later, according to his dad Todd and mom Sonja, Colton began to talk about being in heaven, greeting family members, including a sister who had died before birth although his parents had never told Colton about his mom's miscarriage. Although some people are calling the story a hoax, others say it has inspired them.
