I was getting ready and went off to warm up for a bicycle race. The first 2 miles was up a very steep hill. It would have been Ok if i did a warm up for longer and really did warm up. to Get the heart pumping more blood to the muscles, increase the artery size{happens due to the body heating up}.
But it didn't
Half way up the hill i was in the leade of all the cyclist in the race and felt good enough to stay out in front and to win the race.
As I reached the top I had a heavy chest pain , couldn't breath properly and felt dizzy.
I thought this was not good and let the race go ahead and pulled out.
All heavy exercizes should be started with a good warm up, your life depends in it.

I AM the real work Robbie Kanivel (Evil w/o talent). Since I was a small Kenivel I have been jumping things or something dangerous. Here's a short list:

Seriously stabbed
Coutless concusions
Permanent scaring
near decapitation
stitches
open wounds
I NEED a new hip
Broken Bones
cuts
bruises
ingrown toenail

I used to be crazy, or stupid or both. I'm better now and rollercoasters scare me, but not as much as clowns.

I think this is PFF repeated question. I think the original post was something like what was your closest brush with death. I could save a lot of people a lot of time by finding that post, but I can't find it.

Like a month ago, I was with my friend leaving my neighborhood. At one of my neighbors house, it looked like there was Christmas lights in the tree. I took a second thought and realized “that’s not right, its august” so I made my friend turn around (he was driving) and get a second glance. The tree was actually shorting out on the power line and every where the tree touched another branch, it was arcing on the leaves, making it look like a bunch of little lights. I got curious and started walking on the lawn, (barefoot) and was about to touch the tree when a little voice inside my head went “That’s a bad idea” so we called the fire dept and waiting for them to get there. Put it together later that the tree was completely energized and if I would have touched it I would have been well done.

So this and skydiving. . .

I told a girlfriend of mine once that those jeans DID make her look fat. For some reason, I have a memory gap and a large hospital bill from around that same time. lol I was, however, very sick as a child (two years old or so). I was told that the doctors gave me forty-eight hours. I don't remember it but I suppose it's probably as close as I've been.

When I had a brain tumour I suppose. Had it not been discovered, eventually I would have literally just stopped breathing because I wouldn't have known how to. It was putting pressure on my brainstem that controls this function.

Was working on a radio transmitter on top of a mountain.
Someone had left the cage off of the high voltage supply.
Got into ~1500 Volts DC. Fortunately, It just went through my hand, and not across my chest.
Still knocked the hell out of me, though. Left a nice burn on my hand.

riding my bicycle up to the video store. movie I wanted to get, so pedaling fast....
I ride on the sidewalk. anyways, going down the sidewalk, pretty quick. coming up on sidestreet. minivan turned onto sidesteet from main road. I lock brakes, fly over handlebars, end up on ground looking at a rear tire heading right for me. luckily - my bike hit the minivan, and the stupid b!tch hits the brakes. tire stops 2" from my face.

Got a cut an artery in my wrist once, lost a LOT of blood.

Almost got my heard taken off by a train (missed about an inch)

But the time I was closest to death's door was after the time I made fun of Boondawg's momma!

I have you beat. I *was* dead. Just for a moment tho, not being silly with some ' ive returned from the dead'. Nothing i want to go into detail about however, and nothing i look forward to repeating....

I was cruisin' in a Jetta, in a 2-lane road that cut through the mountains, headed downhill with an 18-wheeler in front, and the brakes crapped out. Kept going faster and faster, almost hit the truck. Fortunately, there was an exit to a small town really close, so we swerved there and cut the engine, and put it in park. 100-foot drop from the road to the land below. I pass by that place around 6 times a year...

Lets see... where to begin?

1) My heart stopped beating for a minute during a hyper glucemic induced diabetic coma. Doctors in emergency pulled me through.

2) I was in the air during 9/11 heading through New York, leaving Toronto heading to Orlando, Florida. Later it was discovered that terrorists were later found in same airport in a foiled hyjack attempt.

there's many more but those are the 2 that stick in my mind.

I sold my car to someone in Michigan, and bought one from someone in Michigan as well. Me and my GF where pulling my car to michigan with my '95 blazer and a car dolly. We where wuite a few hours into the trip all relaxed and everything. We where doing about 80mph or so and the ball came off the hitch!! the car/dolly started jerking left, then right, then left and so on and so forth. Well it ended up kicking the blazer sideways, we slid sideways for a moment (seemed like forever) the we got up on two wheels, i thought for sure that was it, but then the safety chains got tight and yanked us bakc down onto all fours, i managed to slow us down and keep some control of the vehicle. We finaly came to rest in the far right lane, still on the road. i look to my left and there is a fu*kin semi coming right at us!! cars on the side of him so there was nowhere for him to go, he was just blastin his horn, i slammed it into reverse, floored it back over the dolly broke the chains and the semi missed by may be 6" or so. So my GF was obviously FREAKING OUT!!! i was for some reason laughing my ass off and screaming about how awesome it was that we almost died twice. (i dont understand it cause i was nearly in tears myself).
Well i ended up with a flat tire and a giant hole in one rim, a shock that was bent pretty much into a 90* angle, a tore bumper and some other stuff. Not to mention we didnt have a ball for the hitch. Well an officer eventually showed up and gave my GF a ride ot the Autozone where they sold us most of what we needed and gave us some parts as well. We got back on the road and finished our trip. I dont know if it was almost dying or what but that night was the best sex i have EVER had!!!

It was about 15 minutes after it started raining, it was raining quite hard. I was in a 92 mustang convertible. It was equipped with "Road huggers". I was cruising down the road on my way to class. I was doing 35 mph(the speed limit). I don't remember any of what happened but this is what happened as best as anyone can tell. I hydroplaned, lost control of the vehicle. It went into a spin, one tire hit the curb and it then spun in the other direction. The vehicle was stopped by a telephone pole. It smacked in the driver's door and I was buckled in. It pretty much pushed me into the passenger seat. They had to use the jaws of life to get into the car. I was rushed to the hospital, and put in ICU. I don't remember the first couple of weeks in ICU. Then I remember the next week in ICU, after that I was transferred to a regular room. I don't buy Roadhuggers any more.

I was about 10 years old or so at a day camp and I was in a public indoor pool floating on some kind of a styrofoam surfboard thing. Suddenly it shot out from underneath of me. I didn't know how to swim. I was in the deep end...

Can you say panic city? I remember thrashing around and sinking several times below the surface. I remember swallowing a lot of water. I remember my whole life flashing before my eyes, not only what I had done up to that point, but also what I had wanted to do as I got older. I remember some little kid about 7 years old pulling me to safety...

Where the hell were the adults/lifeguards in charge?

That experience scared the heck out of me. It was many years before I went in a pool again. I'm quite comfortable in the water now (thank goodness as I live on the coast), but it took a long time to conquer the awful fear of drowning.

So I was in the car with two other people on my way home from St. Louis and we were going down the highway at about 80-90 mph and my family was in the car in front of us and all of a sudden we see them get in the other lane really fast....and out of no where there was something in the road....not knowing what it was the driver turned the steering wheel to try and get in the other lane and lost control. We ended up going sideways down the interstate at 80-90mph for a little bit and from what my brother told me we were about an inch away from the guard rail and if we would have hit that we would have flipped and it wouldn't have been pretty.......after all of that we realized it was a plastic garbage can =/

Not to mention we didnt have a ball for the hitch. Well an officer eventually showed up and gave my GF a ride ot the Autozone where they sold us most of what we needed and gave us some parts as well. We got back on the road and finished our trip. I dont know if it was almost dying or what but that night was the best sex i have EVER had!!!



Not that i was close to death, but i had a trailer come loose once. Going about 75 it just came apart. ( this was years ago, so i wasnt really breaking the law much ) However the 'safety' chans were stil hooked to the the van/trailer so it decided to start bouncing and hitting the back of the van. Before i got it slowed down and off the road it must have hit the van about 10 times.

If it had been a car, prolly have flipped it.

Turns out a bolt had come loose, then fell out. Always use lock washers

That reminds me of another one. I was at the neighborhood pool, in the deep end with my friends a couple of years ago. I had just dived deep, and as I was coming up, one of them pushed me down as I took a breath. So I started choking. Lifeguard didn't seem to notice me coughing and sputtering, so I swam to the edge and pulled myself up, all the while choking. I sat on a bench and coughed the last water out of my lungs, and the lifeguard asked, "Are you ok?"

For the pilots on the forum how about an inverted spin in a nonaerobatic aircraft in IMC after severe wake turbulence from a heavy near a VORTAC. Dropped from 9000 ft to 6000 ft in less than 30 seconds before getting aircraft under control.

September 1st 1981 I was 8 months old and my parents had just moved into my grandmas house cause she moved to a smaller house. My dad was out of town, my mom and I were in the basement, I was in my baby walker, mom was doing laundry. We had an elevator that went from the basement to the 3rd floor. Mom put me in my walker, the basket of laundry, and herself on the elevator. It was an open elevator with cables holding the top and bottom. We were between the basement and 1st floor when it stopped so my mom firgured it was stuck so she grabbed me and layed my onto the 1st floor and she started climbing out. The cable holding the top up broke and it smashed my mom in the head and trapped her arm, leg and hair. We lived in the country with no 911 BTW. 4 hours later my mom had managed to get her arm free and grab the ironing board to hook the phone cord around the leg and pull the phone to her to call the police. She got a hold of them but they didnt believe her. She fell unconsious I laid on the floor all by myself with a slight concusion. An hour later a cop finally came and called for backup. He was a rookie and went inot shock seeing all the blood and brains spilled out of my moms head. If he had not have came we both would have died that day. BTW my mom had a crushed femur, arm and severe brain damage and lots of blood loss. She's fine now and has beaten the odds.

driving 141 mph in X, a truck pulls out in front of me, i hit the brakes and the car starts swaying. The rear alignment was off so bad that the ass end was trying to pass the front. It was pretty wild.

Another awesome adrenaline rush, i have 21 skydiving jumps. About my 12th jump, I had packed my own chute about 4 or 5 times. I jumped from the plane at 13k feet, and deployed my chute at 5k. My chute was pretty tangled when it came out, and i had a line over the side of my chute. It put me into a spin, not to mention that the risers were crossed. I had to kick and pull and i straightned myself out, and got the line back under the chute. I came out of it about 2500 feet. Rule is I should of cut that chute away at 3k, but i thought i could save it. Another 1000 feet and the reserve would of deployed automatically, and if the tangled chute would of still been out i would of had a huge mess on my hands. But im still here! so its all good.

I B Ok now. It was rheumatic fever. Ended up giving me my heart murmur that I had until about seventeen. Grew out of that and asthma around the same time. Bad health as a kid. Spent enough time in and out of doctor's offices and hospitals that people started to think I was serving an internship. Just bad eating habits now. If you've never heard a heart murmur, it sounds kind of cool. Mine did anyway. Thump thump, whoosh. Thump thump, whoosh. A leaky valve but my machinist couldn't fix that. lol

dehydrated and my blood sugar sky rocketed to 1050.. normal persons is 80-120.

They said if it were any longer internal organs would've been taking a toll and possible coma status.

My escapades aren't all that interesting. Besides the normal broken bones (13), some stitches (30 total...in one shot), and the normal/not-so-normal close calls while driving, I've been zapped with 480 AC current a few times, and been drug half a mile by a Thourobred (sp?) race horse.
