I have faced that kind of situations too, and now I'm glad that I can just remember them as something that happened in the past while being still alive. One of those situations was when I was almost run over by a bus... in a bus station! Bus drivers should be more careful. Also in an amusement park my safety belt jumped out of its place, but fortunately I was helped quickly to tie it back again.

Yes I can remember at least three times where I could have lost my life. The first time was when I was a little girl at the beach with my family. My dad was way out in the water and I try to get to him but went under. I was drowning but my dad saved me. The second time was in 1993 when the world trade center was bombed. Smoke was filling the building and we were stuck in a room. We had wet papers under the door to keep the smoke from coming in. I remember however when a guard came in he had smoke all over his nose when I wiped my nose it to was black. That is when I got nervous because I really thought we were going to die in that small room. Eventually the fireman came and rescued after almost 6 hours in the building and the bombing had happened at 12:18pm during lunch. The third time was on 9/11 I was once again in the WTC working when the first plane went into the WTC. I was in the second building on the 86th floor when the second plane came into my building. Its by the grace of God and my Guardian Angel that I'm still here today.
