    Oh yes, done that and worn the t-shirt
    Had a heart attack and was given a quadruple heart by-pass during which I had a stroke and couldnt be woken up for more than a week because I had forgotten how to breath
    The worst part though was swearing at the nurse, she nearly killed me haha

    I cheated death four times in one four day weekend vacation.

    1st: Nearly drove off an interstate bridge into the Yellowstone River about a mile away from home (just leaving for vacation).

    2nd: Almost got hit by a car walking home from a night out on the town while on vacation. Missed by about an inch.

    3rd: Almost drowned in the wave pool at a water park after I got too brave and went too deep without a tube. (scariest and closest call of these four)

    4th: Was in a tornado warning the last evening of the trip in a high-rise hotel.

    Yes, I was meant to be picking up tickets from a Concert Hall but I got to the bus stop too late and missed the bus.  While I was waiting for the next one to arrive there was an earthquake and the entire Concert Hall building was distroyed. The roof fell in.  I was so fortunate to miss that bus.

    Yes, many times. I've had multiple accidents and horrifying events happen to me, including a near death experience (NDE).

    I'm lucky to have come back to life after my NDE and I wrote about it and my accidents in my book, THINK TWICE BEFORE CROSSING.

    Visit my website www.bgnin.com to find out more about me and my NDE.
