When Colton was 4, his appendix burst, and during that time, he says he visited heaven.

Though 10 years have passed, Colton said, “My experience in heaven is very vivid.” He said he even met a sister that his parents had lost in a miscarriage.

Todd said he knew what his son was saying was real when Colton was able to detail what Todd was doing while the little boy was in surgery.

The film, “Heaven Is For Real,” is based on the hit book, which sold 8 million copies. It comes to theaters on April 16.
