I used to work graveyards doing security. I would start work at 1:00am so I'd be driving to work around 12:45ish, prime time for drunk drivers.
Roads were pretty quiet at that time of night, so I really never thought too much about it. On my way to work one evening, I took the normal rout to work, nothing out of the ordinary. As I drove through downtown, about 5 minutes from my job I start to pass all the night clubs. I was in uniform, thought I was bad ass and I noticed these two black guys standing against the wall glaring at me. I slowed down and made eye contact with them for a few seconds. I was going about 10 MPH and going through a green light. Right as I was in the middle of the intersection, I saw headlights directly to my right. I immediately said "OH FUK" knowing there was going to be an impact. I only saw the headlights for about 1/10th of a second so I couldn't judge how fast he was going, the type of truck. The only thing I knew was I was going to be hit by this vehicle. I gripped the steering wheel and lowered my head bracing for impact. Within another 1/10th of a second, I was T-boned by a car who impacted my passenger side door. I felt glass spray onto the side of my face, cutting it up. Next thing I feel is my seat belt tighten up and I knew he car rolled.
I woke up about 1 minute later to this ghetto black chick yelling "OMG... HE'S DEAD. SOMEBODY HELP ME."
I was stuck upside down with my seat belt keeping me pinned to the seat. I was in about a 10 second daze where I didn't know what was going on. I reached for the radio and realized I was upside down and remembered what happened. I felt this strange feeling come over me and I started to panic. I took the knife out of my pocket, cut my seat belt and freed myself. At this time, a few black people tried to pry my car door open, but it was impossible to open. I started to hear fire and medical on their way and again started to panic even harder. I wasn't sure my injuries because my adrenaline was completely shot.
When I cut myself free I climbed out the window of the passenger side and got to my feet. As I stood up, I was welcomed by about 50 black ghetto people with their mouths open.
I walked over to the curb, sat down and started to take off my security uniform. I checked myself for broken bones and blood. There were no broken bones, hardly any bleeding, and no immediate bruising.

Grew up on a farm, family breed cattle. When I was a very young child we had a steel cattle yard in pieces leaning against our hay shed (about a tonne's worth of steel). Each of them had a gap about 40cm x 80cm big in them with each individual panel being 3m x 2m in size. I was walking by them and touched them, they collapsed straight over the top of me. I had frozen where I was standing and I went perfectly through the gap in every single one. A step in any direction and I would have been crushed to death. I was so young I didn't understand how lucky I was.

Grew up in canada and my dad had a place in whistler we went up to for a week every winter since i was 7. when i was 10 i was a pretty good skiier i thought so i decided to hit up a double black diamond run, my dad pussied out and went around the long way on a blue. spent the next 40 mins scared ****less, tried skiing a bunch of times but every time i went straight down id gain speed so fast i couldnt turn or stop, ended up tumbling and flipping 50 feet. about halfway down decided to get on my ass and crawl until i came to a cliff that i wouldve tumbled right off if i wasnt being safe. got to the bottom crying and waited 45 min for my dad to show up.
overdosed twice at 14 and got stomach pumped, i was losin it so i admitted to my mom how fukd up she was and she drove me in trippin balls. i remember the metal tube being stuck down my nose was so horrible by the time if got to my stomach i told them to take it the fuk out of me. ended up drinking a bunch of charcoal wasnt that bad though i was so fukd up

Oh man. So many times.
Almost drowned as a kid.
Was jumping on a couch as a kid. Fell onto class table. Get huge piece of glass stuck in my face.
Can't remember anymore right now..
Couple years ago jumping on trampoline. Doing back flips and stuff.
Try a double back flip. Somehow I landed on my neck super hard.
I don't knoe what happened. I laid there for 5 minutes.
I couldn't talk. I couldn't breathe. I don't know how I'm alive. SrsDon't be so quick to throw away your life. No matter how disgraceful or embarrassing it may be, you need to keep struggling to find your way out until the very end.

8th grade I got hit by a car while riding my bike across the street, on the crosswalk and everything. Car was probly going about 20-30mph, no helmet. Did a flip, landed on my head, blood from my head everywhere. Ambulance showed up, asked if I was cool, and left. Then the cops came and gave me a $300 ticket for riding my bike on a crosswalk.
Ended up with some serious memory loss. How bout that.D.C.I.

When I was 14 i did a flip and landed on my head, breaking my neck. Now I have a foot long scar on the back of my neck from surgery. They weren't sure if I would end up paralyzed or dying. While still wearing a neck brace, me and a friend snuck into the second story of this beach house because there was a hot tub on it. The maid came, we panicked, and I jumped over the second story railing. Amazed I didn't mess anything up.
About a year later there was a sand bank way out in the water at the beach. It was right where the bay met the ocean, so it was pretty violent. When the tide came in, I tried to swim back in, but was just getting pulled farther out. I swam easily over a mile along the shore before I finally made it back in.
That's about it, I did things like jumping from roof top to roof top but never really had any near misses doing that.

-Was by myself on my folks farm last month feeding their animals while they were interstate.
-Heard rustling in the hayshed and thought I saw something move out of the corner of my eye, decided I must have been imagining things.
-Walk out of the shed and come back about 10 minutes later.
-Walk around a corner, hear rustling again and turn to my left.
-Right in front of me is an Eastern brown snake reared up and ready to strike.
-Welcome to Australia.
EDIT: For those who don't know, the Eastern brown snake is the second most venomous land snake in the world.

some really lucky miscers ITT
got so drunk that i puked while beeing asleep, was 3 or 4 am in the morning, somehow my mum came into my room finding me grasping for air, dunno if i could have died that night but situations like this are potential life-threatening, happened a second time until finally realizing that i never ever want to be that drunk again, last 3 or 4 years i've been drinking in moderation
i have an intolerance to pretty much every NSAID, had a surgery this febuary and prior to waking me up they treated me with diclofenac(i think) for pain relief, i immediately reacted with a severe asthma attack, luckily i was not conscious at that point but was told later that it was pretty intense, luckily the doctors gained control of it, i probably would have died if i had taken that medicine on my own... now i always have my asthma spray around when taking medicine, you never know...
reading through this thread... i'm actually quite lucky overall lol

Don't really think I've had any close calls.
I cut my head open pretty badly as a baby but I can't remember that as I was too young. Apparently I turned around in my buggy at a pool, and as it was in a puddle my movement caused it to slip over and I split my head open on a broken tap.
Last year I had a scary moment but wasn't close to death. Was snowboarding off piste and there was epic pow conditions. I had snow all over my goggles and couldn't see much. I went in through this small gap inbetween 2 trees and next moment all I know is I'm falling. I was terrified as I could only see white, had no idea what was going on and thought I had gone off a cliff or something and was going to die. Then I hit the a floor face first and a bit like a belly flop, surprised I didn't bust up my face as I remember my goggled being compressed really hard into my eyes. Looked up to see I'd fallen about 15-20ft onto a flat icy cat track for cross country skiers. So not a big fall, but still surprising I was completely unhurt and it was mainly just scary.

Lost control of my car on the highway on my way to work seven years ago. Car swerved into all three lanes and then stalled just as it was heading for the median. Other cars had ample warning and gave way when they saw me and let me restart the car and continue on. A few years later, I nodded off behind the wheel of my company's truck and then woke up just in time to slow down before driving right into workers and cops by a fallen power line.

I got hit by a car once while riding my bicycle (was actually standing still waiting to cross the road). Didn't hit me all that hard but I was knocked off my bike onto the road, when I looked up I saw a bus approaching me that would have never been able to stop in time, but it missed my head by a few inches. So basically I didn't cheat death but I think it was the closest I've ever been to dying.
The kunt in the car said he hit his brakes but he slid through bc of the rain (which is BS). Didn't really get hurt or anything but it turned out later that he lived in the neighbourhood where I was paperboy (fuk yeah ****ty jobs at Age: 13). Needless to say he never got his newspaper from me and I pissed in his mailbox a couple of times.
Nah jk I delivered his paper every week and lived happily ever after.

- Going up Mt Barney (Elevation 1,359 m (4,459 ft)) up the logans ridge side
- Right near top after doing a lot of scrambling up volcanic rock
- I'm the least experienced with climbing in the group
- The last climb is really sketchy and even the guys that climb regularly have trouble getting up
- I'm last everyone charges ahead after they get past this bit but I lose my footing and slide down the really rough rock face on my stomach, scraping knees, palms and arms and stop myself with a tree before i fall off another drop, which would have either left me badly injured or dead.
- Engage beast mode
- Growl and grunt as I charge up the last bit while not a **** is being given as I doubt I could catch myself again if I fell and there's only one way up from where I was.
The way we went up is the purple arrow, red dot is about where I fell.
purple square is this mother ****ing crazy thing:
320 meter free climb and scary as ****.
I can't imagine the kind of people that do that
- Still a bit shaky when it comes to rock climbing after that ****.
