Some of these are horrifying...
Accidents happen, and unfortunately some of those accidents can turn into terrible deaths, and seriously unfortunate events. For someone who’s been on the other side of a death, what does it feel like? These Reddit users opened up about the situations that they’ve been in. Whether it was killing someone intentionally, or accidentally causing another person’s death, these stories will shock and surprise you. In situations that you’d never expect, the worst possible scenario can always happen, and that’s what happened for these people. Here are their stories!
“When I was young I used to get bullied a lot, I was in the 9th grade and I had this one person, a senior, that would harass me (and sometimes hit me) constantly. I always tried to just ignore it but I had to walk outside to get to one of my classes and he knew about it. Not a lot of people were around us. We were on the sidewalk, walking down a hill towards the AG Barn. He pushed me and I fell down the hill a little but caught myself, I got angry. Angrier than I normally get. I got so angry that for the first time, I pushed him back. Instead of falling to the side (or not falling at all) like I thought he would, he fell right off the sidewalk, onto the road (for student parking and buses) and fell in front of a bus. There was a few people watching and I called the police afterwards. I know he was bullying me… but I have nightmares about what I did still. Because of what the people who saw said (and the camera outside the building) luckily I never suffered any consequences. But I almost wish I had.”
“I’ll preface this by saying it was an accident. I was 11 years old and had gotten into that tinkering phase kids go through and I was fiddling with my brakes, gears, etc. I went on a ride to a super steep hill that was really popular to test my creation.
As I was blasting down the hill the nut that secures the handle bars jostles loose and I loose all semblance of control. I can remember the car coming towards me from the opposite direction but after that I hit the ground.” (YesIHavwPTSD)
Saving the Tigers
“On my first job out of college, I wrote the software used to track tigers so the government of India could find out where they were going and where poachers were poaching.
They found some poachers. Now there are fewer poachers and more tigers. It doesn’t bother me.” (NSA_Chatbot)
