Closest you've been with death

Share any past experiences where you could have died if not for ______ .

I`ll start off

I was riding my bike (elementary school days) down a very steep hill, suddenly I lost control and crashed into the middle of a very busy street but my friend was there and quickly pulled me off and onto the side walk before the cars almost crashed into me. I only ended up with bandages wrapped around both my arms, legs, and face.

Hopefully hasn't been posted before, I searched though didn't find anything.

Speeding along Dollarton Highway on the way to work in an Integra GSR. Was doing about 110km/hr as I was late (young and dumb) hit the ruts the buses make and hydroplaned sending me into a flat spin down the road. There was a Telephone Pole and then Cement road Barriers and the way the car was spinning it just happened to slide through the middle of the 2 going backwards. I went into the ditch and hit a tree going straight backwards. When I came to my senses I was laying kind of half out the hatch of the car with rain falling on my face. The seat broke backwards and formed a sort of launch ramp that would have had me laying in the forest somewhere had my feet not caught on the lap belt part of my seatbelt. I untangled my feet rolled backwards out of the hatch and took a look at the car. The back of the car was folded around the tree and the back bumper was touching the rear seats. I climbed out of the ditch and some guy was there and he asked if I was ok and that he had already called the ambulance. When the fire truck got there they said "Where's the Dead Guy?" I waved and said "Right here." They were dumbfounded how I was able to walk away without a scratch on me.

Now I'm paranoid as shit driving in the rain.

Berz out.

when i was 14, i was roller blading down windsor street to marine drive to go to the gas station on fraser and marine.. as i was rolling down the hill and i picked up so much speed..when i tried to brake my right rubber brake broke off and couldnt stop any more since i was going down pretty fast. so i decided to hop onto the sidewalk and grabbed a light pole.

other than major bruise on my arm from stopping myself to go into traffic ,and a pair of fucked up blades, i would have been in a major accident involving cars.

holy shit..

in grade 4, i was chasing my friend in the classroom and all of a sudden I tripped and hit my head on one of the desk legs (which had sharp points at the bottom). I remember seeing a spotch of blood on the floor, another classmate carrying me to the principal's office, then me somehow ending up in a hospital.. afterwards i found out i have stitches in my forehead

Another one was when i was driving my bike and I sped up to go across a crosswalk, and with the corner of my eye I see a van coming. The van then fricking hits my bike at about 20km? (it was in a school zone.) And luckily in that moment i did a martial arts dive as fast as i could and rolled onto the cement floor.. fucking driver doesn't even stop to apologize, or help me out, and there went my $300 bike

abt 2 years ago... it was raining pretty hard, i was taking the exit from knight st on to alderbridge (going from vancouver to richmond), as I try to merge to the left lane, as the right inside lane eventually leads to an exit, my car hydroplaned and did a full 180, now I am facing the wrong way of traffic in the middle of 3 lanes while cars going pass me in the rain at like 80-90KM/hr all the while i was in a 96 corolla with no air bags...

BF was driving me to UBC in a Honda Si on 41st. The lights at Angus had just turned green when we reached the intersection so we just kept going. Some guy pushed his luck, ran his stop sign and made a left turn as soon when we got into the intersection. Had my bf not swerved a little to the left to try to avoid a full on t-bone... who knows what would've happened. The other car hit my side right behind my seat, and we spun out and my bf's side hit another car headon. The Si was totalled, but we walked away with matching nasty bruises on our arms and whip lash.

Interesting fact: there's now a barrier at that intersection.

close to? i was over it.
when i was younger, we got rear side ended, our car went in a 360. our car crashed into the railing of the overpass by still creek mcdicks.
half our car was over the edge, above the grass on the bottom, about 15 meters up.
i was in the front seat (i was old enough), our car didnt tip over.
had our car fallen, we wouldve landed upside down 15meters below, all of us being dead.

Driving on the freeway in Japan for the first time, on my first day driving there. The signs there are very obscure (and there are no signs for merging lanes) so I was just leaving the toll area onto the freeway. I didn't realize I was even on a merging lane at the time, and next thing I know I am a few feet away from being smoked by a big truck. He didn't honk or anything...

Luckily although I was being stupid, I was able to react quickly enough to avoid a collision.

I wasn't scared until later that night when we talked about what happened... How close we were to getting smoked at high speed still kind of freaks me out

Looking back on it and understanding the condition better I was in no real danger but at the time I was pretty freaked out. Last year I underwent major surgery on my legs to correct my chronic exertional compartment syndrome and had bilateral simultaneous fasciotomies done. When I came out of anesthesia I was surrounded by people telling me to try to cough and take as deep of breaths as possible, I was being wheeled around on my stretcher to get x-rays of my chest and whatnot. When I tried to ask what was going on I was given the extremely short answer of "part of your lungs have collapsed" which terrified me because I was having trouble breathing and while I kept trying to take deep breaths and remember to cough I kept fading in and out and in my doped up state was pretty sure that I was going to die. Turns out that acute postoperative atelectasis is fairly common and that with the massive amount of supplementary oxygen I was getting it was just a matter of time before I recovered, but for the first several hours (felt like days) in recovery I was pretty sure that I was doomed.

If you're being serious, you need to wake the fuck up before you kill someone.

last summer, jacked up my car with the OEM jack....took the rear wheel off and decided to have a quick visual inspection of the struts and camber arms...as I got out and stood up, the jack failed and the car came crashing down...one of those "I'd be dead" moments.

Similar to yours. I was changing the oil on my car and switching out a flat. So i was parked in the church across the street lot. I was to lazy to get the huge jack. I used my oem jack. Jacked my car up. Went under, undid the oil bolt and the oil filter. I heard a creaky noise. Pulled my headout quickly. Jack tipped over because it was on uneven grounds. Car hit the floor hard with my head 5inches away.


Another time was my friends birthday at his house. It was just mutual friends and it went we'll then someone called their older buddies. I was pretty much trying to stop a fight between these two guys when a third guy came in shooting. The bullet went passed me and into the guy i was holding back leg. Everyone ran after the shot. Someone stole my brandnew nike shox. Worst party ever
