Wow. This video is a fascinating study of luck, fate, miracles, randomness or whatever you choose to believe. It’s a total white-knuckle ride, regardless of how you choose to characterize the real-life events depicted.
To me, it’s an amazing compilation of real miracles in action – but if you don’t like rollercoasters or scary images, this might not be for you.
The clip contains some of the most hair-raising footage of lucky people, inches away from being seriously injured or even annihilated in awful accidents – but they are left completely untouched and unharmed.
This piece really speaks to me, because I’ve been personally involved in a few incidents similar to the ones seen here. It just wasn’t my “time”.
Mostly captured by municipal CCTV cameras or by cameras mounted on car dashboards, it is more gut-wrenching and awe-inspiring than any Hollywood $200M CGI disaster flick, like the upcoming ‘Geostorm’.
