Late september I woke up. A stabbing pain in my gut. I couldn't handle it. I tried to get up but it was hard. A few minutes later I got up. I walked to my room to relax and play video games. I had to use the bathroom. Pure diarrhea. I thought it was constipation, clearly not. Later I turned off my game and went to the kitchen and talked this over with my parents. I said maybe my gallbladder needed to be removed. I showed my dad where it hurt. I pointed to my left side of my stomach. He thought appendix. Later we went to the ER and I was tested. I had appendicitis. Hours later they removed my appendix. My doctor, (let's call them uvissia) Uvissia said my surgery was good, It was near bursting. IF it did burst I could die of poison. I'm now waling fine and have three scars. So thats my Near Death story.

I was at a pool party, and I can't swim. I was on a float in the deep end and then it tipped over. I might have drowned if my BFF didn't come by with a unicorn donut float and pulled me up.

I have three of them, but the scariest one to me was when I was at my bus stop from school and I had to walk the rest of the way home. I waved to everyone and when I turned to walk to the exit, the door was shut right where my neck was. Everyone who saw me were shocked. My hands were on the door to make sure it didn't close on my neck. Then the bus driver opened the doors (I was using the second door because it was close to me) and I got out. This was last year ( I'm in 7th now).

It wasn't that close, but once a lady in a red car came speeding around the corner on the long road my school was on. I lived pretty close to the school but had to cross that same street to get to the side of the road my house was on. I had been waiting for a while at the school crossing point (no monitors, it wasn't that wide), and was halfway across the road when she sped around the corner. Luckily I wasn't a deer in headlights and sped across the rest of the road fast. She stopped a few feet after that and came out of the car to apologize quickly. A few days after that, at the school parent pickup area that everyone has to exit in order to leave the school, she saw me and gave a more detailed apology and explanation. The entire thing was pretty weird and i don't think i ever told my mom.

First: Developed bilateral bronchopneumonia basically overnight when I was 11 months. Had what appeared to be a minor cold when I was put to bed. Next morning spiked 104F (40C) fever, resulting in rush to the hospital. Seizure in the car on the way, stopped breathing. Thankfully the hospital was only a few minutes from our house, so I wasn’t without oxygen for too long.

Second: Car seats in the 80s sucked, and were ridiculously easy for a kid to escape. At 3 I escaped mine, and stood up in it. Just as mom went to grab me and sit me back down, car door opened and I fell out head first. We were in a residential area, so not zooming down the road, thankfully, and after a trip to the hospital didn’t have anything too serious wrong. Mom destroyed the transmission in her car slamming it in to park. Before anyone starts with the neglectful patent rant, mom had secure me properly, and shut the door firmly. What she didn’t know was my 5 year old bro had tried to open the door a minute later when her back was turned. It was just a coincidental series of events. I think mom was ready to tie me to the cart seat, though. I was constantly escaping it. I have a permanent bump on my head now, which kinda sucks.

I've had two near-death experiences. The most deathly one was when my family and I (including my mom, my mom's boyfriend, some of his friends, and my sister. I was younger then. We were driving out on a lake in a boat when my mom's boyfriend (now ex) asked us if we wanted to get off the boat or go see a waterfall.

We chose the waterfall and headed towards it. It was beautiful, but we realized that we were getting too close towards it. Mom's boyfriend tried to steer away from it, but then the boat went underwater. I could not swim, so I almost drowned until one of mom's boyfriend friends picked me up out of the water and saved my life. It was one of the most scariest experiences I have ever had. I am now in 7th Grade.

My family and some church friends were hiking at Masies Peak in CA and then we were going down the trail. My brother and I were at the front. Suddenly my dad pulled both of us ba'ck (he was behind us) and it turned out that there was a rattle snake. If my dad hadn't been there or if we were walking too fast... we would've been dead. Another one was my brother, not me. We were hiking and we were on this kinda thin trail where one side there was a drop off and the other side a wall of rock/dust. My dad decided to make a little joke about Hulk Smash and gathered some leaves and when he 'punched' the wall he'd let go of the leaves. Anyways, it was really funny and then my brother was laughing the hardest, and then he topped over. When he was near the cliff. Thank God, he fell over on a bush that caught him when he fell, otherwise he would've fallen more than 50 feet. So after that my dad joked "A Bush's Purpose" (Like a Dog's Purpose, you know, the movie?)

When I was pregnant with my daughter I got sudden onset preeclampsia, she had to be delivered at 26 weeks (she was actually fine and could breathe on her own) I continued to get worse, I got to the point where I had to be placed into a medically induced coma. In the three weeks I was out I had many hallucinations (although some reality did get theough). The hallucinations that sticks out though was I was being held captive in a home by drug dealing nurses, I was tied up because I kept trying to escape (in reality I had restrains on so I wouldn't pull out my tubes). Also there was one particular nurse (holding me hostage) she was mean; after I was out of the coma I wound up having that nurse I recognized her and knew her name. Anyway back to the point at one point during the hallucination I thought the door to the house was open and it was really cold, still tied up of course and I said "this is it I'm going to die here" (internal monologue of course). Then I heard loud noises and I was approached by a person I didn't recognize and they showed me a picture of my baby. That calmed me down. That's where the hallucination ended. So I don't know for sure if I was showing signs of distress and one of the nurses tried to calm me down by showing me a picture of my baby. That was my near death experience.

I almost died 3 days ago. A power line exploded, and a tree fell. It missed me like 2 feet. Next one is 4 years ago. I played with somebody on the pool and jumped. I can`t swim but it is shallow. Now he, thinking I am a swimmer, dragged me underwater for a minute. I held my breath, my vision darkened, but he understood what he did, he ran away. I did the technique that my veteran relative from Vietnam War told me, to kick the floor. I did and I got out. A similar incident 3 years ago is with my friend after I took swimming classes. A friend is not able to swim. Reflecting on my near-death, I attempted to save him. He is a dunce that he went on top of me. I held it again. He got out, but a floating raft blocked my head. I used it to my advantage, but it flipped. I swam underwater and held my breath for a total of 30 seconds. Water went in my body through my nose. After that I vomited and sneezed. Yeah it is messed up.

When I was 3 my friend pushed me into the deep end of the pool when we were walking past it. I didn't have any air in my lungs, so I inhaled water and was down there on the bottom for a couple of minutes before anyone noticed. I remember watching from overhead as a very hot Brazilian man dove in and pulled me out and started CPR. Woke up back to normal. It was actually very calming once I got over the initial panic from inhaling water. I still don't do much swimming, though.

I've had quite a few but the one I remember the most is when I was fairly young. I don't remember my exact age, just that I was older than 10 and younger than 16. I was at a campground with my grandparents, parents and sisters at the time, and wanted to go swimming, so my grandpa went to the pool with me. Forgetting that I couldn't swim, I decided to jump into the deep end of the pool. Immediately started going under multiple times and no one noticed. I was sure I was going to die but then I managed to grab something and got towed back to side of the pool. I grabbed a woman's swimsuit top and she gave me this dirty look. I felt bad but I'm not sorry I did it. I'm certain I would've died if I hadn't.

I can't swim. I was with a friend at a lake. I was maybe 9 or 10. My friend, her little 3 or 4 year old sister, and all 3 of us went out on the lake about maybe 15 feet from the shore on a 3-seater inflatable alligator. I had a small life jacket on, and so did my friend and her sister. (Side note: My friend COULD swim.) We were catching leaves and sticks that floated past us on the water. My friend leaned out too far to reach a stick and boom! the whole thing tipped over. My life jacket was second-hand (from a consignment store near that very lake) and the force of the float tipping over must have been too strong for it to hold me up. Anyhow, I remember being a few feet below the surface. I had sense, so I was not breathing. I remember looking up at the sun shining on the water's surface and thinking "that's beautiful...". Then I heard my friend yelling for her sister and I snapped back into reality. As if something else was controlling me, I struggled to the surface and climbed back onto the inflatable alligator. And that's my story.

When I was 4(And still not know how to swim) My family went to a pool. The guy didn't make me were a life jacket so my mom put me on a but float. She saw one of her friends and went to talk to them on the OTHER SIDE of the pool. I looked down at the water and it din't look to deep so I JUMPED in... it was deep. I couldn't touch the bottom of the pool and I almost drowned. Keep in mind my mm was on the other side of the pool and I don't know what the Life guard was doing but my sister pusher a big float over to me.

I was terrified, I jumped on a feeder and my other work friend who was 23 at the time told me to run to her so I did and we all hid in the stables and locked the door while the husband was breaking the windows with a pitchfork and trying to open the door. my friend called the police but they said just stay there. how helpful... when my friend said the police were coming, even tho they weren't he left us alone and drove away. scariest moment of my life.

Fast forward to during the school day, and I went to get a drink. That is all I remember before having a seizure. Ambulances, Fire Trucks, the whole first responder gang was there. I was carried to the office by my assistant teacher and was driven by my mom and dad to the ER. My Mom and friends told me what happened during the seizure. I went up to get a drink, fell over onto the tile floor, threw up, and everyone stood there in shock for a few minutes. Long story short, that was my most recent seizure, and am now in *th grade and perfectly healthy. :D

My brother was young and didn’t know better and ran straight into the road. I didn’t see a car coming, but I still was scared and grabbed him and pulled him back. A car sped past us. He was in shock for a little while.

Good thing you were scared enough to pull him closer.

I put a metal fork in the toaster when I was like 8- not really dramatic and I was fine but my mum sure came at me when I told her what happened.

I put my finger in a mixer once, without unplugging it. I can say with the utmost conviction that it definitely is not a good idea to do that. (Finger was saved, was only cut halfway so didn’t even need stitches, I lucked out I know)

I forget what ammonia is. A bit like amnesia, perhaps?

Once when I was young, maybe 7 or 8, our family was driving back home along a road which had really tall streetlights. When all of a sudden, a car either infront or behind us driven by drunken people in their 20's slammed head first into one of the streetlighs. Due to the impact, the streetlight came topplling down and my dad slammed the pedal and we sped out of it's way along with a bunch of other cars. One lady stepped out and called the police but after stopping to look back, we went straight home. We right near the streetlight and if we had been unlucky enough it would've torn through our roof.

My family traveled through the mountains all the time to get to my grandparents house about 3 hours from us. We drove that same pass all through the year and never had any problems with snow or ice. But one time we went over the top, and just started on the downhill part and all of a sudden must’ve hit some ice and we started sliding into oncoming traffic, and ended up turning 180° And almost hitting the guard rail. Which, if we had hit the guard rail, we would’ve probably dropped several hundred feet as there’s a steep cliff there. We all went silent and all my dad said was “sh*t” and we eventually turned around. Also one time, driving the opposite way on the same pass in a canyon next to a steep cliff and a river, we heard a crash from behind us. My dad was driving and I looked back and a Boulder the size of our car had fallen and hit right behind us, and I saw it tip down into the River. That one was scary cause if the rock fell just a few seconds earlier we would’ve been hit.

This sounds like when someone fell off the pegboard at school. (Yes my school had a pegboard.) Of course, 6 year old me and my friends made a HUGE deal and the pegboard was destroyed by some random 7th grader a week later.

Went into major surgery (so this already stressed me out) turns out when I woke up, my heart stopped for a few seconds because the surgeon nicked one of my arteries on accident. So yeah I almost died and if I had I wouldn’t have even known it.

When I was really little I would get the croup very often. One time I woke up in the middle of the night. I couldn't breathe. I ran into my mother's room and she started taking my to the emergency room. They put me on a ventilator. (One that went over my nose. Just clarifying I remember it like it was yesterday) After a while I was fine and I could go home.
If I hadn't woken up and told my mother I would be dead. If the hospital wasn't so close. I probably be dead. I am very thankful the hospital was nearby.

I had that when I was 4 months old. My mom was alone with my brother and me so she almosted jumped out of her skin when she heard this really old man’s coug. So she was scared sh*tless thinking there was a burglar and went to fetch her children and saw that I was all purple and blue. No phone, no car, luckily they lived near a hospital or I wouldn’t be here today

I almost got into a car crash with my mom. A guy was driving on the wrong side of the road and coming strait at us. My mom honk the horn hard and the guy swerved at the last second. I was in the front passenger seat and might have been crushed if the guy hit us. I still get nervous around minivans ( what the guy was driving)

I was admitted to this old, outdated ER for (at the time) reasons unknown. They put me in the only room available which was the defibrillator room, at least that’s what I called it because it had all the contraptions on the wall to bring that people back to life (monitors, paddles, X-ray light, tubes and wires). it was a very creepy room with a stained ceiling. I was pumped me full of morphine and left without a word and they turned out the light. They didn’t tell me what was next, why I was waiting, who my doctor was… I was high as a kite now, in a creepy room with the lights off and nurses kept coming in and out with clipboards looking at stuff, grabbing equipment, doing whatever they do but never looking at me and never turning on the light. I seriously thought I was dead, I will never forget the experience. It was very traumatizing. This went on for a few hours (when they finally came back and turned the light on) and they told me I could have died from an infection on my kidney.

Had a feeding tube put in after a surgery; the first time they tried to feed through it the nurse punctured my colon. She didn’t believe anything was wrong even though I was in pain and the tube wasn’t working properly so they sent me home the next day. Three days later I was rushed to the hospital (a different one where the staff was competent)septic with a high high fever, had to have the tube out and emergency surgery, and a new tube placed. Was in the hospital for almost a month after that with tons of complication and then on at hike care for over 4 months. Good times.

Got hit by a car at a crossing on my way to school. Light was red for vehicles, I was crossing. I am told (I don't remember it) that a dude turned out of a side road and ran the lights. He hit me and ran, the guy in the vehicle behind him was the one to help me apparently. The only reason that it wasn't worse, given how I was hit, was because the side road was so close to the crossing he wasn't going as fast as he could have been.

I had emergency surgery and was in the ICU for 8 days. The doctors were going to airlift me to a university hospital because all of my vital signs were failing. My husband went home to shower before the decisions were made. While he was gone, God asked me if I wanted to come home or stay. I chose to stay. When my husband returned I was awake, sitting up in bed and all my vital signs were normal.

People usually attack me for this, but I really hate when people say “gOd AsKeD.” All my bullies said god told them to bully me. They all got away, except sweet little Samantha. She was caught and given the under the chair punishment. She was told to sit under the chair for 45 minutes (it was going to be an hour but she pooped herself pretty badly.) My school was small so everyone knew.

When I was about 8 years old I was riding my bike around my street when suddenly the chain came off and I lost my brakes. I crashed in the middle of the street just as a car was coming at me. The car stopped with the wheel just inches from my face.

Last summer at 29 years old my fiancée, her family and I were our rock climbing in maple canyon, Utah. I spotted a trail to the top of the cliff where I could get some really awesome photos. I told them I’d be right back and climbed to the top. When I got to the cliff edge I suddenly realized I couldn’t see the trail anymore. I spent the next 2 hours in the 100 degree heat without any water trying to find my way back down. About dying from heat exhaustion some free climbers spotted me and came up to save me. My fiancées family still makes fun of me for getting lost in the desert and I learned a lesson that day.

I was in a bad relationship with no way out, nowhere to go, so I stayed. One time he had a psychosis and had these knives and was yelling and such towards me. I tried to leave but he blocked the door. This was on the 5th or 6th floor, depending on how you score floors but it was about 80ft up. After hours and hours of being cornered but those sharp knives in the way of getting out of there, I saw no other choice than jumping out of the window. At that moment all I could think was that I had no alternative. I’m lucky I’m not paralyzed, shattered ankle and vertebrae and broken pelvis. Was immobilized for 2 months, pelvis and vertebrae are officially healed but have still problems with it but the ankle is what undid me. Now 10 or 11 surgeries later, still recovering from the latest surgery, I might be able to walk again without pain after 20 years of pain with each step. If the top half of my body wouldn’t have landed in bushes, that fall would most likely been my death but those short but thick bushes cushioned my fall. Too sad the other half fell on concrete. I mind have gotten away with minor injuries if I had landed completely on the bushes.

As a brittle diabetic, my blood sugar can go off track very easily. One Wednesday, I lay down on the couch around noon to watch tv and maybe doze off for a nap. At some point after falling asleep, I rolled into the space between the couch and coffee table.

My younger sister was looking for me, but when she didn’t find me in my room, she assumed I went with my father to see a movie...something we occasionally did before his Wednesday night bowling league. She eventually noticed me some time later, unable to wake me up, and called for an ambulance.

I have no memory of the following day and a half, and woke up in a hospital bed late Thursday night with a breathing tube in place and my arms tied to the bed rails; Apparently, I’d been trying to pull out the breathing tube, IVs, etc in my non-coherent stupor.

Was riding my motorcycle one day and some cager didn't shoulder check before they changed into my lane. Tried honking to no avail and they made contact with me via a rather abrupt lane change. High sided and got thrown off my bike.

The scary part is that I was on a two-lane bridge. If I had gotten thrown off any closer to the railings, I wouldn't have just slid along the road but would have gone over the railing.

When I was about five years old, I was swimming at a kind-of friend’s house. Well, I had water wings, so the fact that the pool didn’t have a shallow/ deep end (it was all one depth) was no big deal. So I was swimming, or at least I was trying to, and somehow I slipped out of my water wings. I sank to the bottom of the pool like a stone. I couldn’t hold my breath and I nearly drowned. Someone pulled me up to the surface. I coughed up a ton of water and drank a Caprisun.
