Welcome, Tucker Jones. As far as I understand, not all people remember an NDE, and some will start remembering it after a period of time. Many people remembering an NDE will say that there were key factors they were aware of at the time that they simply cannot remember. I feel the same applies to dreams and even past events in our life: the memory is stored somewhere in our consciousness and sometimes an event during the day will suddenly unlock the memory or a flash of the memory of a dream or of a past experience.
I guess this grey area is not mentioned in the video, as the emphasis is on severely depressed people who want to get out of their hellish situation by ending their lives.
And I guess there are people who simply do not have an NDE or suffer from a complete amnesia as it happens at times as a result of shock.
My take on this is that depression is to be taken very seriously before it turns into suicidal thoughts and before psychiatrists start offering medications as a solution.
As to death being delayed because somebody does not remember having an NDE, I am not quite sure what to say, as those who remember having an NDE often remember some sort of choice they made to come back or were forced to make to come back, so I cannot help wondering about all those who die for good.
All in all I feel the essence is we need to focus on our here-and-now situation, be aware of and love the people who are part of our lives, especially if they are suffering and take our own suffering seriously and talk about it. Maybe, in an ideal world, where everyone loves and understands one another, we would not lose our connection with the powerful spirit beings we are and maybe this world would turn into an earthly paradise.
EDIT: Sorry, I might have misunderstood your question "What if the person who did not have an NDE did not survive?" My answer to that would be that near-death experiences only apply to people who survive as a result of a close brush with death, but to be honest, now that I read the question from this angle, I am not sure I understand what you mean.
