12 People Who Are Lucky To Be Alive
There are few things more exhilarating than the stress and relief of witnessing a close call. When it comes to these, go in knowing that everyone made it through but don't let that take away from how badly any of these could have gone.
1. Man overboard...?
Once you're not on dry land, I'm pretty well already tapped out.
2. Wait for it...
Wait for it...
There it is ...
I'm super curious about what all that junk at the bottom is.
3. Can I axe you a question?
That thing seems barely embedded in the dashboard. I'm not totally sure what saved that passenger's life.
4. Yeah, that's a lawnmower blade
The person who took this photo works at a Ford dealership. In the comments, they describe it as:
Yesterday, a woman brought in her mustang with a hole in the windshield, on the driver side at head level, and a chunk of steel stuck in the passenger side rear seat. She was driving down the highway past a state highway lawn mower. As she passed at about 65mph, the tip of the mower blade broke off, and smashed through her window and came to rest in the rear seat. She was entirely unharmed, but understandably shaken. The angle makes it seem that she was missed by mere inches, at the most. The piece of steel is about 8" long, 2.5" wide and 1.5" thick.
Up next: The closest fly-by ever
5. Definitely clenched my knees together at this one
It's the little extra nubbin at the end that somehow makes this among the worst things I've seen in awhile. It's just taunting your crotch.
6. 'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge, and I forgot to break
This is like the dangling RV scene from The Lost World. I just can't.
7. Hold on, I just need to wave to my buddy
How the person on the balcony's head didn't explode is a wonder.
8. Jeep driver almost got a wood finish
Again with the penetrating objects to the crotch. I can't stop squirming.
Up next: What's got them so spooked?
9. And over there on the left, a drop-off to the Pacific Ocean
Mudslides are no joke.
10. Bound to happen when you play a game with knives strapped to your shoes
Or: How to get a really really close shave.
11. Disclaimer: Everyone in this photo is fine
And that's why you always leave a note.
12. What is that even from?
The person who posted this photo had the best title so I can't not include it. "They never saw it coming." SAW it coming. Brilliant.
