Has anyone ever had a close call where they very nearly missed being badly injured/killed?

One time I was driving on the highway in a compact car. A semi was next to me and went to change lanes, but he must not have seen me because clearly I was in his way and he would have crushed me. I couldnt change lanes either because there was a SUV right next to me on the other side. So I had to slam on the brakes really hard. Its lucky there was no one right behind me.

Another time one of my friends was lighting a bottle rocket and I was standing behind him. However, he decided to drop it and it fell and flew backwards. It scorched the side of my shoe, it was so close to my foot.

Anyone else?

There was this time when I was a kid and I was being chased in my backyard by my little sister (because I had been annoying her, as usual) and suddenly my face hits a barbed wire and it cut my left eyelid and I was bleeding and screaming like a girl and my sister was like "OMG" and mum came and was like "WTF is going on" and later in the evening dad was like "You look like Frankenstein! lololololololol".

Man, I could have lost my left eye. Thankfully, the only sequel was a scar in my eyelid.

Has every single thread in the TC gone off-topic?
Pfft, this is a discussion about close calls. We rightly started discussing the close calls (and calls) of famous musicians.
Man, I could have lost my left eye. Thankfully, the only sequel was a scar in my eyelid.
Was it your sister that hit you with the friggin' barbed wire? My bi-polar sister has taken knives to me, but jeez...
later in the evening dad was like "You look like Frankenstein! lololololololol".
Your dad seems very supportive.

Barbed wire, you say. Barbed wire be phun. I've had my glasses punched in, luck prevented any glass shards from going into my eye.

Nah, it was just hanging there. Our backyard looked like a WWI trench back then.

I was once running across a field and climbed over a wire fence. It was only later that I noticed there were a bunch of slashes and cuts on my clothing, and then I realised I had climbed over a barbed wire fence without knowing it.

One time I fell down ice-skating (and so did someone behind me). Their skates almost cut my fingers off.

Another time I was in the local woods after dark. I was hiding behind a trash can while a guy was tagging a tree stump. I'm still surprised that he didn't catch me. Later, my friend and I smashed it.

What if you were the one to cause a close call to someone else? I was swinging a golf club and it came out of my hands (and we all know the rest of the story ).

Um... (my life is somewhat boring)...

Meh... I only skate when I play hockey... that's one dangerous game.

But pretty awesome, I mean you can like skate right into others and say HA!

1. Fell out of a moving car when I was 8. Minor bruises and nothing serious since I fell onto grass and not onto asphalt. Did get some dog shit on my pants though.
2. Got run over by a heavy bike when I was 5 - unable to walk for a month.
3. Hit in the crotch by a baseball at 10. That hurt. I hope I can procreate. (yes, I can if you're wondering)
4. Fell face forward on the edge of a step and broke my chin (still have some faint stitch marks under my stubble) - age 8 as well. And to think this happened when I was trying to get the phone so my dad could call the hospital/clinic for my brother who had some illness (pneumonia, I think).
5. Dropped a huge rock on my foot. The nails on 3 of my toes (including the big toe) tore off. That was when I was 11.

What did you smash, and why were you out there? (I tag tree stumps whenever I'm feeling down at night! Next time, yell out "Aro!", see if you get a positive response! )

Prove it.

Ah, an injury to get attention while somebody else was sick perhaps? 'Twas the standard in my family.

Wow, you know I've heard this theory that middle children end up compensating for their lack of attention for their whole lives. I dont know if it has any scientific proof yet though.

I was walking past a tower block under construction when a piece of plaster fell off and shattered on the pavement three yards ahead of me. We complained and actually got the road closed until the building was finished.

Once, when I was eleven or twelve, I was on the swingset in my back yard.I decided to let go of the chains and lay flat while I was pretty high off the ground. Bad mistake. I did a backwards flip off the swingset (On accident) and landed on my back. I couldn't breath for a while because I got the air knocked out of me, and to furthur my humiliation, my brother and my youngest cousin were swinging and playing soccer outside and they laughed as hard as they could until they realized I was really hurt (Lots of bruises and strained/pulled muscles in my neck and groin). That's the support I get at home.

Another time I was playing in a huge whiffleball game at my cousin's house with probably 25 people in it, and I was up to bat. I swung, made contact, forgot to hold onto the bat and it slammed right into my oldest cousin (22 years old) groin. Everyone (Including me) fell down roaring with laughter especially when the only comment he could get out were "Max (Me !), I wouldn't come near me right now or I'll have to deck you because my children are in jeopardy."
