    Default Near death experiences

    Last night I left a restaurant with DS 5 minutes before a man was shot dead. This has left me shaken and asking a lot of 'what ifs' such as what if I had have had that extra plate I was going to or grabbed a drink...
    What's scary is I walked past the man moments prior also.
    Close call, way too close!

    Has anyone else had any near death type experiences?

    That was so scary I live in rochedale and both these crimes are so close to home I don't think they intended to hurt anyone other then the guy they murdered. I know it won't make you feel any better tho

    That's the one... Treating little man to
    Some sushi. Almost got more than I bargained for!
    I remember giving him the evil eye because he went outside and was on the phone smoking right outside the restaurant and I had little man and my pregnant self (which was torture- I couldn't eat any of my fav sushi!)

    How scary for you! Hugs! When I was 17 years old I was involved in a car accident. Basically, there was blackout and the lights weren't working. My boyfriend at the time was driving. We were t-boned and the car wrapped around a power pole. The car that hit us hit just before my door (near the wheel), if it had of hit my door I wouldn't be here today. If my boyfriend was driving even a little bit slower or faster even, it could have ended very differently. As it was, I broke my leg very badly and my life changed forever, but I am forever grateful for the fact that I lived through it.

    That's awful Must have been quite an unnerving experience.

    I haven't had an actual near death experience but an eerie one. I was doing a bar & waiting course and did some work at the old Newcastle Workers Club. At the time I felt like I'd rather be on the other side of the bar enjoying myself so I handed in my notice. A few days later the 1989 earthquake hit and the bar I'd been working in was obliterated. It freaked me out as i would have been rostered on that day and also very distressing as one of the ladies who was training me lost her life.

    Omg jbish that must have been awful *hugs*
    I'm lucky it was a matter of leaving early (sliding doors style) rather than actually nearly dying. Thats life altering stuff...

    It's funny that you mentioned "sliding doors" because that is exactly what I thought of when I read your post.
