Death will not announce itself before you come face to face with it. It will creep up on you and snatch your life away without any explanations. The following individuals saw death very closely but managed to escape it.
1. Isidro Mejia
Mejia was working at a construction site when his foot slipped and he fell. His fall was broken by six nails that were 3.5 inches long. They entered his skull and neck and technically, he should have died on the spot but he did not and is alive and kicking today.
2. Richard Blass
This man escaped death not once but several times. The first time he managed to get away unscathed after a mafia attempt. The second time he managed to run out of the motel he was staying at as it burst into flames. The third time he was shot in the head but did not die. He spent time in prison twice but managed to escape both times. The man finally died when somebody shot at him 23 times.
3. Ahad Israfil
