Titled “Lucky People Compilation” seems like an understatement to describe the content of this incredible video!
Each clip in the video will have you wondering just how these people survived their brush with death. Definitely, these are some extremely lucky individuals!
The clips come from all over the world captured with great pinpoint views of the “miracles” these individuals experienced. It is hard to fathom how these individuals did not end up in the morgue.
The “close call” or“ordinary instant,” as Joan Didion describes it, in “The Year of Magical Thinking,” her memoir describing her husband’s sudden death from a heart attack and the process of writing about it.
“Confronted with sudden disaster,” Didion writes her memoir, “we all focus on how unremarkable the circumstances were in which the unthinkable occurred, the clear blue sky from which the plane fell, the routine errand that ended on the shoulder with the car in flames.”
These experiences of impending death are almost like a butterfly effect reaction. Thoughts of ‘Maybe if I didn’t look down at my phone notification’, or ‘Perhaps if I hadn’t missed the train’ are common.
It is human nature to second guess movements when a catastrophe occurs. Many people are suddenly thrust into their “15 minutes of fame” when a video goes viral of their extremely lucky close call. Some have written very successful books or scripts about their ordeal.
Others become obsessed with constantly making sure they never take that same route to work or wear that color blue again as if it was a cursed item.
Whatever route these Near Death Individuals take after their experience, a majority appreciate life far more than us average Joes do. The roses do smell sweeter to them and the sky is bluer because, after an adrenaline rush of near death, people’s 5 sensors seem to be upgraded.
