  • Yes. I wasn't wearing my seatbelt on a vanride from rehearsal to my house and it was rainy outside. A deer jumped and skidded across the road in front of us and my van driver slammed on the breaks. I flew forward (I was in the front seat) and almost flew out the window. Luckily, I thought to use my hands and grab on to the dashboard which sprung me backward into the seat and on the floor. I also could have almost broken my wrists (I did not). It was a super close call, but hey! I'm alive!

    • thats your own fault, no sympathy

    • @jamesdegod Lol, I know. I never said it wasn't. I mean, it's not the first time it would've been my fault in almost killing myself. I was with my friend and she wasn't wearing her seatbelt either. We didn't tell our moms until a month later.

  • I have almost drown, because of a stupid truth or dare game. If there wouldn't have been the teacher I would have died, because the others just laughed at me.
    Some years later a guy classmate almost suffocated me because I didn't let him play on my phone.
    So, my almost deaths were caused by stupidity.
    No wonder why I hate it so much.

  • Either would have died, or just gotten a major head injury, I don't know though because it almost happened.

    I was helping move a heavy staircase (that looked pretty light) from a 6ft ledge. I misjudged the weight of the staircase when it was over me and it started coming crashing down. This strong guy I know very quickly grabbed hold of it before it fell on me. That was a scary moment for me, but luckily I was okay.

  • Most recently fell off the side of a cliff. Just managed to grab the edge with my hands like in the movies.

    Been electrocuted a few times, tore up the cartilage in my knee while hiking solo in the wilderness. Without my sat phone I'd be bear shit. Almost got hit by a car a few months back on the bike.

  • Twice I've had loaded guns pointed at me.

    Once I fell asleep sitting up and fell onto the floor closing off my windpipe. Just as I started to "white out" and lost consciousness, my body rolled over, clearing my airway and I quickly recovered.

    And I was boating with some friends when a couple of them decided to swim to shore. I tried to swim with them but was exhausted and didn't think I could make it to shore. I tried to make it back to the boat, but the waves worked against me and I almost drowned. I rested for a bit and was eventually able to swim to shore.

  • Yes, two times... once when I was only about 3 years old, I nearly drowned in the sea when my swim ring started blowing out... but my parents were nearby. Anyway, that was my first diving :P
    The second time, I fell from a tree, when I was 12 years old, it was very high, about 30 ft... I broke my left leg and right arm, and I had a concussion... I was in hospital about three weeks and then about four weeks in spa rehabilitation center.

  • Not really. But there was this one time I almost drowned in a river at the age of 6 or so. But my dad saved me, dived in to the water with everything of value still in his pockets lol. Funny thing is my friend who was with us tried to save me too but he began drowning as well xD

    • Let's hope he drowns or something.

    • I haven't seen that dude since I was a kid lol
      I wouldn't want anybody to drown, That's some scary shit :(

  • I fell on a dock spike when I was 8 years old. Slipped on the wet wood of the timber frame and if I did not catch myself on the wet wood with my hands eight inches of dock spike would have gone through my heart. It just so happens my rib cage blocked it also. I chipped the bone in my rib though.

  • Yes, funny story actually. I was going camping with my dad, my brother and a few of his friends a couple summers ago and we had decided to go to a place with a lot of small waterfalls. Well being myself I thought that it was a smart idea to jump down one that happened to empty into a very small but very deep pool. So I jump in eager to be the first to say that I withstood the freezing water. When I wasn't surfacing I started to swim upwards. When I still wasn't surfacing I swam up harder and harder until my face finally surfaced. I had just enough time to take in another breath before I was sucked back under again. This happened a few more times until I managed to grab onto a ledge which wasn't all that reliable since friction was literally the only thing keeping me from falling back in. Eventually My brother and his friends found me and were able to drag my dumb ass out before I could drown or something.

  • Yes. In November 2012. Within the period of a month I was into 4 accidents and except one all had few deaths. Total 10+ people died in 3 of them. Luckily I got only few scratches but it shook up my body. My friend was in coma.
