A boy whose tale of dying and going to heaven after a car crash that became a best-selling book has today admitted that he made the whole thing up.
Alex Malarkey, now 16, lay in a coma for two months and was left paralyzed after the wreck in 2004.
But when he awoke, he amazed doctors and his parents with a story of how an Angel had lifted him up to heaven where he met Jesus and Satan.
His story was made into the best-selling book The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven, which was co-authored with his father Kevin and first published in 2010.
But now Alex has admitted it was all a lie.
