I've never actually been there to witness someone die. I've seen sick/dying people yes, and I've been to a few funerals, but never in the actual moment of death.

Although I was there when my friend had her dog being put to sleep, which was really traumatizing.

Yeah. My friend and coach was shot and killed by police. I watched from my window and when he came out of the house, they shot him. They didn't even try to talk him down, all they did was escalate the situation. Since that time, the police in my hometown have been deemed corrupt by the federal government and now they're on strict regulations and going through reformation.
From Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was all over the news when they shot and killed an unarmed homeless man.

I never have. Circumstances have defended me from that and it is surely for the best. One day, I may have to witness it. We lose family and friends as a part of life. Maybe I will see some accident or other occurrence.

I watched both my mother and father die of old age and illness and held their hands as they passed away I saw two of my best friends killed by roadside bombs in Iraq and have killed a few insurgents close enough to see the look in their eyes when they died. Those looks still haunt my dreams

Yes. But I'll not repeat the story since it was grisly and it was at hospital.

My mom and a gang of other moms saved a dying pitbull mama from being flattened by passing cars, sadly, she passed in the trunk. The poor dogs' body had notably protruding nipples and she looked like she'd just given birth to babies. Bless that beautiful dog, whose life went too fast, too soon. She lifted her head and licked me before we put her into the car, as if to say, "thank you".

I cried over that for hours, no, days, wondering who would've abandoned this poor helpless animal in the middle of an intersection, or who the hell let her roam freely across streets. Either way, the sweet angel has passed, but I will probably keep the memory of her.

I saw my grandma die. Now I'm not trying to sound like some tough guy, but I didn't cry. I felt bad that I didn't cry as I was extremely close to her, but the more I thought about it I realized that I was in shock. To watch someone die is just a terrible experience and the worst thing ever is having to hear the death rattle. The Death Rattle is one thing you never unhear or want to experience again.

I work in safety at my company so I seen plenty of videos but glad to say in front of me no. Although I did see a guy in my high-school cut his fingers off in wood working with a hand saw. That was the most graphic i've seen in front of me.

Technically no, but I once saw the corpse of a man who had gotten hit by a train. I didn't see him entirely, just his legs as we drove past the ambulance that was loading him up. From what I could tell, the body oddly wasn't too mangled. Made me think about my life seeing such a depressing scene.

While the death of a human to me is immensely sad, animals or pets passing away really tears me up more... They're so innocent, and they really have never done anything to deserve something like death, so it really haunts me when I try to push it out of my head or justify it. I always wonder if they know what exactly is happening to them, or if they know that when we bring them to the vet and hug them once more, that it's the final time we'll ever see them. Thinking about it now, I wonder if they know that when we put them down, we're doing it to take their pain away, not that we don't love them. It's not like they get a choice, we are the sole people who decide their fate. When you look at a dog, you can tell that they enjoy life so much, so I always think to myself "Would this dog really want to leave behind something that they love so much?"

So sad, but I suppose it's part of nature.

I've seen three dogs die. Two were family pets. One day I looked out of the window and saw a strange woman reaching out to our dog. Mother, lil sis and bro were there. I went out to find out who the woman was. It turned out that she'd accidentally hit our dog with her car and came to find out if he was ok. When I got to them I could see our dog had been hurt. He laid down and died, sis bawled her eyes out. I was 8/9.

The next one also a pet, well bro's pet. He'd wanted a purebred German shepherd and threw a tantrum until mother gave him money to get it. He only had enough to get it without having vet shots. When the dog was 6 months old she got sick. Bro took her to the vet but they said it was too late. He brought her home and went to bed. At midnight I checked up on the dog and she died.

The last one I saw when I was near the highway. The dog just ran on without stopping and I thought if it doesn't stop it'll get run over. That's exactly what happened. It went flying on impact then tried to lift its head up then died.

Was at my dad's side when he died of cancer about 7 years ago. Still remember it like it was yesterday. You can't help thinking about things like what went through their minds, were they scared, were they aware etc.... so yeah, those moments do warp you a little.
