Have you ever ever almost really hurt yourself or miraculously survived?

Yes, when I was 15 I did roof construction over the summer to pay for my first car. It was late and we were just about finished for the day. I was on the ground cleaning up and putting tools back into the trucks.
I was asked to help balance one of the roughly three story tall ladders as they brought it down. They all metal ladder slipped and contacted a live power line. There was a bright flash and sparks were flying everywhere.
When the electric crew came out to survey the damage they noticed two burn marks on the ladder... one were the electrical current entered the ladder and one a few feet about where my hands were and were the current left the ladder.
They said we would have had a better chance of winner the lottery then for that current to do what it did by exiting the ladder just a few feet away from me.
If it had not played out that way the current would have likely caused my heart to explode1
