Many of us can remember having a brush with danger in our lives. With the chaotic way life can work sometimes, a harrowing situation can suddenly arise on the most routine days. You could do something a million times in your life without incident, but it only takes a slight difference in the process to turn everything on its head.
You may be painfully aware of what’s going on or it could take a moment before you realize, “Whoa, I think I almost died.” Either way, these close calls can come with a shuddering feeling that you can look back on in amazement for years to come.
Today, we’re going to go through 10 of these kinds of situations. Nobody wants to be stuck in them, but there’s still a much worse way they could have gone.
Please COMMENT and share the scariest moments that you survived.
1. This is about as close as it gets.
I’m not sure what led this car to skid out of control like this, but the man in the yellow managed to jump out of the way just in time. Crazier still, the driver seemed relatively unharmed considering his head hit the windshield so hard that he broke it.

2. This chemical plant explosion had a sad outcome, but it could have been so much worse.
An oxygen tank exploded and tragically caused the death of a 46-year-old worker, but the vehicles outside narrowly managed to avoid it. Officials also managed to contain the blast before any chemicals leaked into the water table.
