When I was 11/12/13 (can't remember), my skull was just a few inches away from being crushed. I was still a beginner at horse back riding, and my horse went too fast, too quickly and I panicked and held her neck. Seeing as she was previously a race horse, that made her go faster Eventually I fell off head first and my back took full impact on the ground (it hurt, a lot). Had my horse not stopped immediately, I most likely would've been dead or seriously disfigured.

When I was 9 I got to my school way too early one day and since there was nothing to do I started playing basketball with some guys...except I'm asthmatic (used to be worse back then) and since I live in the Caribbean, the air in the early morning hours is full of spores and pollen, so that + lots of physical activity = it wasn't long before I had a chronic attack. My whole skin was turning blue/purple and I couldn't risk moving (just walking takes a bit of oxygen so I didn't know whether to stay put or seek help). Luckily my mom, who got me to school that day, was still around and got me to the hospital ASAP, and before noon I was actually back at school.

At some other point I nearly choked on one of those Nips caramel candies but thankfully at the last seconds it went through...that was actually scarier because of how sudden it was.

Me and my friends were walking to school down this long pavement next to a main road, and we were nearing a set of traffic lights. Then, some absolute dickhead decided to throw a bottle full of ice at us while going at 50mph, and it literally skimmed the side of my face. If I'd been a step to the right it would've hit me! D:

I imagine it would've done some damage >.< Now, if I could just find the guy who did it...

I've had a few occasions where I've nearly choked to death from food being stuck in my throat. I was nearly hit by a car I didn't see coming and the driver stopped it with about 3cm between us by the time he'd stopped. I also nearly drowned in a pool once. I went off this water slide thing into incredibly deep water. I was expecting my dad to catch me so I stupidly didn't take a deep breath, he missed me and I was rapidly grasping for his hand as I sank deeper to the point that I couldn't even breathe out anymore. 2 or 3 more seconds and I'd have been gone.

I was in the back seat of my friends car when they had, unbeknownst to me, decided it would be a good idea to try drifting. They had messed up and while turning we had gone over the curb a bit and hit a tree. When we hit the tree only 1 tire did and it ramped off of it. We proceeded to go through the air upside down for at least 12ft before landing on the roof of the car onto asphalt. Thank god for seat belts.

When I was around 13 my dad ended up having a seizure while driving. My mom grabbed the wheel and turned it right and the car stopped in the middle of a field, she got out calling for help and forgot to put it in park and we ended up accelerating again just barely missing a few trees, went over a hill clearing a small road that goes to the parking lot. There were some small trees on the side we flew through, I'm not sure if we hit any or not but we ended up on the drivers side of the car after landing on top of a few cars in a parking lot.

I almost lost my balance and fell off a ladder on to an iron gate while doing some painting on the house.

First, holy crap! I had a dream about this thread's existence.

Second, my nearest death experience is actually being clinically dead for 5 minutes. According to my dad, I drank a whole bottle of Pinesol when I was one. I died while the ambulance was on the way, but apparently came back and was acting like nothing happened.

The near death experiences have never stopped since, the last was almost becoming entangled with another jumper while static line jumping.

Got hit by a car, flew about 20 feet to another parked car. Lost a lot of blood, everything was turning black and white. Didn't want to talk to anyone because it required energy. Yeah.

on a cold winter day in Alaska, the road connecting to the main road was sheer ice and it has around a 30 degree slope, well i didn't have the proper winter tires and studded tires dont really help you stop anyways and i started sliding faster and faster and slid out in to the first lane of traffic.
Here comes this huge fucking ford f350 going 50 or 55 mph and he barely swerves into the other lane just in time to dodge me, lucky there wasn't anything in the oncoming lane at that moment

I almost got hit by a car when I was six years old.

Then I nearly choked on some candy when I was four years old. It was hard for me to breathe.

I was around four and we used to have a huge in-ground pool in our backyard. I was walking along the rim and suddenly my three year old brother rammed me to the side on accident with his huge toy truck and I fell into the deep end. I tried to kick for the surface and if my dad hadn't been outside watering the plants I would have died since my clearly useless brother couldn't have saved me.

When I was in between elementary and middle school
I was in the deep end of the pool and I decided to let as much air out of my lungs as possible to sink to the bottom quickly, once I hit the bottom, I jump up to the surface, when my friend decides to hold my head underwater
but he did let go after I thrashed about
