`It is an unbelievable story of a 5-year-old Luke Ruehlman who claimed to have once lived as an African-American woman named Pam Robinson from Chicago. The weird story began when Luke started bringing up the name “Pam” randomly in conversation.
Luke’s family knows no one named Pam, so his mom decided to investigate further. When she asked young Luke who Pam was, he told her, “I was and then I died and went up to heaven. I saw God and then He pushed me back down and I was a baby and you named me Luke.”
When the mother asked him further on how he had died, the boy told her that it was a fire accident and he had to jump off a building. Luke told his mom that he had died in “a tall building,” and he was a girl with black hair.” Luke also told his mom that he had travelled by train in Chicago. Surprisingly, the 5-year-old has never visited Chicago.
Out of curiosity, the mother tried to find some more information on Pam from Chicago who had died in a fire. And then, she was shocked to see an article about a fire that devastated Chicago’s Paxton Hotel, and claimed the lives of 19 people in 1993. One of the victims was an African-American woman named Pam Robinson, who, trapped by the raging fire, jumped to her death.
After this, Luke’s mother reached out to the Robinson family, and discovered the boy and the woman shared the same tastes in music.
