Near-fatal accidents occur on an almost daily basis. Even just crossing the road could potentially lead us to an early grave. And that’s not necessarily because we were being negligent or not looking where we were going – often disastrous incidents are completely out of our control. That’s why we should count our lucky chickens every single day that our hearts continue to beat.
I mean it, there are a plethora of deathly obstacles we face in our day-to-day lives. Every day, in every corner of the world, there are people surviving almost-fatal shark attacks, dodging unexpected bullets and nearly falling off cliffs.

So without further ado, here are the most extreme examples of people who narrowly avoided the most extreme disasters. Brace yourself for they truly are chilling…

1. Beware of the bull

129 is the new 666.

2. These coins managed to block a bullet during the First World War

Sounds like a lucky escape to me…
