Had a convo with a guy at work today, talked about near death experiences we'd be in.. I thought... it would be good to hear about some peoples
...when they should have died, but somehow survived!
I was 19, coming home from night clubbing with 2 of my oldest friends. We were driving past Secret Harbor, in WA. It was a 100kmph highway (cruise
control) snaking through large farm like properties (and small pockets of suburbs)
It was around 4am I was in the frnt passenger seat, Dude in the back crashed out, he was snoring away, myself and the driver were chatting.. we only
had 10 more minutes left of this hr journey home. I remember saying, 'ya'orite mate', he just shrugs n says yeah almost home..
I put my head on the window closed my eyes and was gone.. in a flash in dream land.
I drifted off.. driver drifted off too... then the car followed suit.
We went over the white line, onto the gravely emergency lane.. then we went down the embankment..
of course, this woke us up,
when I opened my eyes... the biggest meanest mutli-decade tree, im talking a base maybe 2m thick..... was right there, . beside the window.. my
.. it sailed past in the blink of an eye. Its lowest branch scraped the roof... we almost rubbed the bark of this tree as we screamed past it.. it was
the driver panicked and turned the wheel.. our back end tailed out and we spun 30 degrees and went head on into the embankment, rolling the car
several times down the road until it came to a stop.. on its roof.
Witnesses came over, who were driving behind us in shock.. not one of us was bleeding.. we had sore bodies but nothing was broken!
as we were laying in the long grass watching staring at the sky.. .. the ambulance came screaming down the road..
the medic gets out and says '' we were told there were 3 dead kids in the car....... ''
the near miss, was that tree!
.. the driver was asleep.. and it was only a matter of ... 4-5 inches? more drift to the left... and we would have hit that tree head on...
...and we'd have never known about it.
I sit there and think, this car drifted for maybe 100-150m before we went over that embankment.. and skimmed that tree..
how much of an angel change would it take.. at the very beggining of that draft to have us 4-5 inches to the left 150m down the track..
i really believe something guided our car past that tree and not straight into it.
.... anyone else?
