There are tons of things that could go wrong during the day, but that’s what makes life so unpredictable. Unfortunately, not all of us have the common sense to stay away from danger. Some of us actually get a thrill out of tempting fate. Just look at these 37 spine-tingling images taken moments before the unimaginable happened.We’re guessing this is what they mean when they say wide load. That cargo ship was so packed that it looked all the cargo was about to topple over. In fact, some of the containers were crushed while only four of them wound up falling in the water. Fortunately, no one got hurt in the incident and the boat didn’t go bottoms up.
This pilot managed to eject himself seconds before his Harrier Jump Jet crashed in front of a live audience during an air show. In fact, some people thought it was all part of the show. But fortunately, no one, not even the pilot suffered any injuries. But kudos to the photographer for being so brave.
Believe it or not, fear of clowns is a condition some people struggle with. In fact, it’s called Coulrophobia, which is something that baker is about to experience. Poor guy! He has no idea what’s coming around the corner, but we can imagine that those pastries won’t have a long shelf life after he has a major meltdown on the sidewalk.
This kid seems to be enjoying being the next Evil Knievel. His little sister is pretty impressed too. But his mom is freaking out on that canoe. Just look at her face. She knows that whatever happens, her kid’s going to be aching for like a week. Fortunately, he didn’t suffer any scars from his daredevil stunt.
Okay, we get it! She has a nice body. But this is why you should never walk and gawk at the same time. This guy was so embarrassed when he ran into that pole. Who knows? Maybe she heard the thump and turned around, but probably not.
So this couple decided to reenact that scene on the edge of the boat with Rose and Jack on the Titanic. But things got really awkward when a seagull swooped in and ruined the moment. Guess the heart might go on, but that lady’s nose won’t.
These skis are supposed to be safer than conventional ones. But that third guy looks like he’s auditioning to play Superman. It looks like when the boat started up, it gave him a bigger jolt than he expected. Ironically, he didn’t crash into his buddies below, but he did get seriously water burned.
Believe it or not, Seth actually knew that the shark was there and thought it would be fun to surf close to it anyway. Ironically, the shark must have been full, because he didn’t bother Seth, and they ended up going their separate ways. No harm no foul.
In 1998, Nigel Corner, a race car driver in the Goodwood Revival, survived a crash that should have killed him. During a Motor Sports Magazine interview, Corner admitted that if he’d been wearing a seatbelt, he’d have died. So, we’re guessing that seatbelts don’t always save lives, at least, not when you’re in a brutal tight race.
This couple seemed like they were bracing for the inevitable as a giant elephant walked up to their VW and started sniffing it with his trunk. So many things could have gone wrong here, like the animal sitting and crushing the occupants of the car or tossing the vehicle away. But the couple eventually drove off without a scratch to their car.
If an octopus perceives someone as a threat, it can paralyze and leave them without the ability to breathe. Guess he was so irresistible that this 8-legged beauty couldn’t help herself. Fortunately, the man faked being paralyzed, which allowed them to take it off of the man’s back without harming anyone or anything.
Camels rarely attack humans but they are known for being aggressive with one another. But on occasion, they will sniff a human out and mess with their hair. But for some odd reason, this camel was frustrated or hungry and decided to try and eat this poor tourist.
This pole dancer on the subway was asking for trouble, but not only because of the stunt she was pulling. She was also holding a drink in her hand. That poor guy! But then again, it’s unexpected moments like these and weird people that make you avoid public transportation altogether.
If shooting cats out of a cannon wasn’t inhumane, this is what they’d look like. Just look at the fierce determination on its face. Whatever this cat was chasing, it wasn’t about to let anything stand in its way. Oddly enough, cats don’t usually waste energy on anything they don’t deem worth the trouble.
If you’ve ever been stung by a baby, you should cry, but not for yourself, unless you’re allergic. You should grieve for the poor honey bee because when they sting someone and fly away, they leave their guts, nerves, and muscles behind, causing them to die.
This woman is like a python’s equivalent of the mother of all dragons. Now Burmese Pythons can swallow an entire human, but this lady doesn’t seem concerned at all. Maybe she can talk to animals. That would totally explain why she wasn’t strangled or eaten by this slithering creature.
How classy! While everyone else was getting ready to take the perfect shot, the blonde girl couldn’t hold her liquor or her dinner, and literally, let it all out. Now that’s the kind of moment you certainly don’t need a photo to remember.
Talk about perfect timing! This photo was taken a second before the vehicle dove nose first into the water. But don’t panic. This wasn’t an accident. The car was dropped from the sky and there was no inside. As to why someone did this, we can only assume they literally had nothing better to waste their time with.
Baseball games are so popular, someone should start a club. Oh wait, someone came up with a better idea. Instead of hitting the ball, why not send a club hurtling through the air until it knocks someone’s teeth out. Just comes to show you that you can’t be too careful, even at a baseball stadium.
This hunter’s a cougar hound, he just doesn’t know it yet. While he’s savoring his victory for taking out an elk, that mountain lion, who isn’t usually very aggressive, seems to be checking him out, possibly because It’s hungry and wants to make the elk and the guy it’s next meal.
Horse riders know that it’s a dangerous sport and unexpected things can happen too. But then again, it’s like riding a motorcycle, only livelier and prettier. On second thought, this might be more terrifying than a motorcycle, especially when you get ahead of the horse during a death-defying jump.
This lady is holding the rifle over her eye socket when she should be shouldering it instead. So when she shoots, the recoil is going to push the scope into her eyeball. But who knows? Maybe she’s an expert. It could explain why she doesn’t seem too worried about losing an eye.
This poor lady must’ve gone number 2 in her bikini when her husband held a stingray against her back. Fortunately, the only thing that happened was this priceless expression going viral, causing several memes to be used with her face. Sadly, we all know how powerful a stingray’s sting can be. Just ask Steve Irwin. Fortunately, this woman lived to tell the tale.
A backflip or somersault is definitely going to impress the ladies at a public pool, unless of course, this happens. One miscalculation in this guy ended up rearranging his face. Hopefully, he managed to keep most of his teeth. But boy that moment of impact must have hurt real bad.
Talk about a heart-stopping moment. It’s like a scene from “Final Destination.” Unfortunately, as drivers, we’ll run into something scary like this. And if you’re lucky enough, you might be able to survive it, so you can sue the pants off the driver in front of you.
This monkey was probably shocked when he saw a huge skirt blowing up against his face like that. But while the outfit would make a great umbrella, the animal seems to be more interested in the peep show. Now he can finish his apple and rest his head on her lap.
Well, there you have it ladies and gentlemen! Law enforcement’s finest is having a full-on panic mode after a crocodile popped up from the shrubs. Somehow, we doubt that the crocodile will be too cooperative. That cop is also going to have a heck of a time cuffing it too.
One of the perks of being a boat captain is that you never know what to expect when you go out in the waters. You could end up with the catch of the day, or the catch of the day might end up catching you instead. Hopefully, those two managed to swim to safety after their boat capsized.
Remember how your mother told you never get too close during a car race? Well here’s the reason why. Race car driving is a force of nature. You just don’t know when something horrible is going to happen, like that vehicle tornado-ing its way towards those girls on the side of the road.
Sure, birds look all cute and nice, but they have a mean streak to them, especially around lunchtime. Obviously, there’s a reason why there’s an “I” in birds, cause only “I” get to eat all these seeds. Everyone else can go find their own food somewhere else.
Riding on a horse is like a bride’s dream come true. There’s something almost fairy-tale like about the whole experience. But what do you think is going to happen when that poor bride gallops a little too fast? That’s right, she’s going to fall butt first on the ground with her legs swinging, and not the way she expected.
Okay, so we’ll admit that the photo of this guy surfing on a cloud is pretty cool and all. But we can’t help but wonder if he’ll still think it’s cool when he realizes he forgot to put on his parachute. Thankfully, he’s in position to start flapping his wings like a bird. Who knows? Maybe it’ll work.
Why is she standing so close to the edge of a pool? Did she have one too many or did she laugh so hard she’s about to fall over? Let’s hope that she left her wallet and her cell phone on the lounge chair, cause she’s about to for a swim.
Clearly, this woman planned this photo ahead of time. But the result was still jaw-dropping and beautiful. Now the question is, did she end up covered in sand and rocks? Oh well, sometimes you have to make a little sacrifice to take the perfect Insta-shot.
If you thought you had it rough as a kid, be grateful you’re not the teenager whose sweet sixteen birthday cake this belongs to. Looks like mom had butterfingers that day. Hopefully, that teen will be able to look back at this photo and laugh about it with her folks someday.
Oh sure! This spot is just perfect for a nice photo. Too bad this poor woman doesn’t realize that she’s on the lunch menu for the crocodile lurking in that cave. We sure don’t know if this lady made it out in one piece, but that shirt she’s wearing is symbolic of the danger she’s in.
