    One time I had pneumonia or hypothermia and I almost died. Also when I was a kid a tv fell on my head.

    Yes, I have.

    I was at a concert in March and I was shoved to the ground and trampled by a bunch of obsessive One Direction fangirls. Yeah, that's why I don't like 1D's fans anymore, they nearly killed me.

    Before I was one year old. I was in the hospital and I had a massive hole in my heart. Daddy told me my eyes were like... ye know... rolling back or something? when I was in the ER but the doctors done everything they could do and yeah, I was in the hospital for like 4 months or 8 something. By the time I started to walk properly on foot, I was like 2 years old, nya~

    I ran into a rabid dog once on the way to the supermarket.

    I never ran so fast in my life.

    I've almost drowned. Twice.

    I've almost drowned twice: once at a pool party and the other at summer camp. That is why I'm absolutely terrified of drowning, b/c I was close enough to it for one thing and the other being you actually can still see as you die, which is scary for me. It's a guarantee where I'm going when I die, but how I die, that's not : / lol...sort of.

    The other being an allergic reaction to some medicine when I was little and nearly getting hit by a car, but yeah. I'm terrified of drowning is the real statement here

    No. There have been situations where I could have potentially died but quick action and luck have prevented any situation from getting so bad that my survival was in doubt.

    And I have had my car spin out of control over an entire highway and puked my stomach dry from dehydration amongst other things. But things turned out fine. (minus hospital bills anyway)

    I almost drowned when I was eight. I still fear swimming (and do NOT ask me about it...).

    Once when I was crossing the street, I was being careless and not noticing a car coming. If it wasn't for my friends being there to warn me, I probably wouldn't be here.
     
  14. I've had plenty of near-death experiences, but 2 stick out to me the most.

    First was when I was 7 years old. This was at the beach, and a storm was rolling in. My dad had taught me how to ride waves that summer, and we saw how huge the waves were on the shore, so despite how dark and forboding and windy the weather was, we went out. Unfortunately there was a horrible undertow, and we got trapped a ways offshore. My dad had not taught me how to properly escape riptides, so he had to resort to picking me up above his head to keep me from drowning, making it very difficult for him to swim. We were luckily spotted by some lifeguards, but that could've been the end.
    My poor mother with my infant brother was watching in horror from the hotel balcony the entire time. :p

    2nd time is much less of a story. I was biking in town and crossed a tricky 4-way intersection (only 2-way stop sign) without really looking. A very fast car missed me by mere feet. Or should I say I missed it, it didn't really show any signs of trying to avoid me. heh.

    I've had two so far, both when I was a baby - one time I choked on a bandage and just managed to vomit it out as the ambulance arrived (how long was I suffocating, anyway? At least two minutes? Sure, there was a hospital nearby, but still...), and the other time was when I got pneumonia weeks after I was born, though that was less of a threatening situation, I think. I caught pneumonia again when I was four, so yeah.
     
  17. lolwut? wanna expound on that statement?

    Yes.
    I was in Disney world (go figure) and I was at one of the water parks and in line for one of the reeeeealy high slides and they had decorative snow that was about 5 ft high and on the other side of that was about a 4 or 5 story drop. And being a 6 year old I decided to climb up on it and almost sloped off the hill.
     
  19. I've had a few.
    When I was born there were complications, had to stay in the hospital for 2 weeks.
    Almost drowned when I was 6.
    Was trampled by a horse at age 8.
    Had a cliff side fall on top of me at 16.

    Other less serious but still possible life threatening times include: a car accident at around 7, an attempted kidnapping at 3, being cut by jerks at school around 15, and my first allergic reaction towards mint (my throat swelled and I needed surgery).
    .....it's a surprise I am still alive TBH.

    Now that ye mentioned it, I almost drown as well o_o I thought I was safe on neck-heigh water on the lake, but suddenly when i was moving my feet about underwater, I couldn't feel the ground anymore and I suddenly fell in. It was like falling off a cliff, but I swam up and shouted, "Waaaaah help!" to my friend. Glad she was just right in front of me and she dragged me in. I didn't swim for ages after that :c And it was a field trip...nya~
