Have you ever reached so close to death?

Yes, I've experienced! It was a car accident: I passed with my car perfectly between two trees and I fell down with the car in a little gully... The fact is that if I was with my car just a little bit more on the right or on the left, I certainly center a tree in front of my car and I think that it might be my end... I've learned something from this episode: to go slower with the car, because you could take only one second to lose your life!!!!

It wasn't me, but my mother and father in law. They were in a terrible car accident, hit by teenagers out tubing and were drunk. My mother in law broke both legs/and one ankle. She still to this day has to walk with crutches so she remembers this day each and every day of her life. They had to cut her out of the car and lifeline her to another hospital. My father in law was just about scalped. Luckily no ligimates or brain was damaged. yet to this day, he seems to have a different attitude about things. Many things just rub him the wrong way and he never acted like that before. It was scary and we have seen so much happen so quickly and took mother in law a year to get to walk (with help)

I almost got hit by a bus once. I managed to get away from the road some seconds before the bus would have hit me. I still don't understand that I was able to react that fast, and I don't think that I would be able to do it in a normal situation, because it was a matter of a few seconds, but I am happy that I managed to get away. I got some bruises and my clothes was ruined, but considering what could have happened I was more than lucky. It was very shocked afterwards, but most of all I was happy and grateful that I didn't get killed or seriously injured.
