I remember when I was a kid in "the truth."
There was an elderly sister that had a heart attack during the meeting. She made loud gasping sounds as she was holding on for dear life. She was sitting in the third row from the front. But the brother conducting the meeting just when on as if nothing was happening. I could tell that he was shaken by what was happening as were others in the meeting. But no one said anything as the sister was gasping for life. I remember feeling very scared.
Eventually, after it seemed like 3 or 4 minutes, he paused in his talk and asked an attendant to check on the sister. Then he continued on with the meeting. The ambulance came to pick her up and took her to the hospital. She died that night.
I remember some sisters saying,"At least she died in the kingdom hall while trying to serve Jehovah." As if that gave her a free trip to paradise or heaven or whatever she was supposed to go after death.
But the thing that still sticks out to me in my mind is how the meeting just kept going on with just a brief pause to remove the distraction.
It just mind boggling to me that the meeting did not end early or a prayer was not said in her behalf to provide comfort for her.
Has anyone ever experience anything like this?
