Whether its fate or some kind of guardian angel, these people, thanks to their lucky stars, managed to avoid disaster by some freakish kind of luck. A couple of them kind of show why safety equipment is SO important, like when a shard of metal manages to fly at your face, missing your eye by mere millimetres.
You know that feeling when you lose your phone, your heart races, your palms sweat... and then there's that sweet feeling of relief when you actually find it? Multiply that by 10 and then you might be able to start understanding how these people feel.
Some of these very close calls are pure forgetfulness, others were literally inches away from losing a limb but this post will have you on the edge of your seat. This post is not for the faint-hearted!
