Life is unpredictable, and even the ugliest situations can turn out to become the story to share with your friends on Friday nights.
Some people are lucky enough to cheat during exams and avoid getting caught, while others can even cheat death.
As the title suggests, this post is dedicated to the latter – the people who survived the direst of situations. While some of them survived thanks to pure luck, others managed to fight their way out of troubles.
Even though fatal incidents may occur at any time, we hope to inspire people to stay strong and keep on fighting, as we never know how things will turn out.
Without further ado, here are the top 10 people who cheated death!
1. Escaping a shark might sound unrealistic, but it happens, and this woman proved that!
