People who cheat death think that they deserve to keep right on living. To die soon after would be just pointless and cruel on any level of cosmic life.
There are, however, those misfortuned souls that died soon after they eluded death.
The helicopter that mowed down earthquake survivors in their sleep
Few things can spell out the word ‘apocalypse’ more deftly than an earthquake. Just think of the firm unshakeable ground under your feet starting to shift furiously. Where do you go?! What do you do?!
So, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake hit Oaxaca, Mexico, in February 2018, sending the citizens into a reel of panic. It was the third major quake in six months that crawled up on Mexico and Oaxaca was still recovering from the first disaster that killed 400 people. There was mercifully no deaths this time, but the day was not over.
It is understandable that they were fearful to sleep in any structure, like a house, and so a group set of to a field and slept on the ground or in vehicles. What they didn’t know was that a military helicopter was heading their way to evaluate the damage done by the earthquake. Due to unbeknown circumstances the pilot lost control of the helicopter and dropped in on the sleeping survivors. Fourteen people lost their lives with nearly two dozen sustaining injuries. The people on the helicopter survived with a few scratches.
A man survives a hot balloon crash just to die on the ground
To fly can make you feel utter freedom and terror simultaneously. You feel free from the pull of gravity and you feel vulnerable to that same pull of gravity. Bob Bickerdike experienced that paradox on many levels.
He and three of his buddies happened to go hot air ballooning in the French Alps in 2011. He was in his own balloon and his friends in another one when he flew into a mountain that was 6,000 feet high. Fortunately, he made it to the solid earth without serious injuries and even made a phone call to his friends to tell them that he was okay.
Surviving the fall out of the sky he thought the worst was over. However, he felt that the terrain where he landed was not save and decided to move to safer surroundings. He had noticed cottages about a half a mile from the crash site previously and decided to move into that direction. But, unbeknown to him, there was a 1,300 feet deep ravine on his route that he didn’t see in the increasing darkness. He plummeted to his death.
A woman dies in a car crash after she sidestepped a plane crash
Catching your flight can be treated as a matter of life and death, but Johanna Ganthaler brought truth to the saying. Johanna and her husband were supposed to board Air France Flight 447 in 2009. They didn’t and because of that they made it home that day.
Flight 447 flew into a series of storm clouds. The pilot deactivated the autopilot after ice crippled the plane’s speed sensors. The confused human pilots made mistakes and it resulted in a fatal chain of errors that sent the plane into a deadly crash that killed all 228 people on board.
But the Ganthaler’s miraculous good fortune was not meant to be as they moved into the path of an oncoming truck while travelling through Austria less than two weeks later. Johanna was killed on impact and her husband was severely injured.
The man who was beaten to death after he survived a brain tumor
Jeffery Howell developed a life threatening brain tumor that had to be surgically removed in 2018. It must have been devastating news to him. To think that you have cancer in your brain and there is only one way out – they have to cut it out. The risks involved in such a situation can brought on stress that can shorten your time by itself.
Well, the operation was a success but Howell still died, three weeks after the operation. He was fishing down by the river and saw something that really disgusted him. A group of people was throwing bottles into the water and children were playing nearby. Thinking of the children’s safety he told them to knock it off. However, a fight ensued and he was hit over the head with a bottle, near his surgical scar. He died not long after that due to the trauma to the scar.
A man escaped the Pulse Nightclub shooting only to meet with his death at a party
Chris Brodman wasn’t a lucky guy. His mother died when he was 17 and his relationship with his father worsened. His spine was fractured after that in 2007 when a car smash threw him through his windshield. And then things got really bad for him. He was diagnosed with HIV and hepatitis as well as heart problems. But instead of drowning in his sorrows he still brought joy to the lives of those who knew him.
The night of the massacre at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. Brodman was having a cigarette on the patio when all hell broke loose inside the club. Self-preservation became his friend in an instance and he and a group of other people brought down a fence and ran for their lives. Three months later his time was up. While at a party in Tampa he took a cigarette break and stepped out. He suddenly collapsed and before anyone realized what was happening he was dead. The blood vessels in his brain was compromised by a genetic defect and ruptured without warning, killing him.
A woman got out of a car wreck into oncoming traffic
Brittany Leith had a bright future ahead of her in 2015. She had a 3-year old little girl and was working herself up to become a hairdresser. Her beloved grandmother supported her and told Brittany what a great mom she was. But everything ended tragically on that fateful morning of November 30.
Brittany was returning home after visiting a friend when her vehicle hit a median and overtuned. Two concerned drivers helped her to the shoulder of the road. She appeared to be in physical good shape, but what happened next begged the question of her mental wellbeing at that moment. Motorists tried to persuade her to stay on the shoulder of the road, but she insisted on crossing three lanes of oncoming traffic. She wanted to grab items out of her overturned car. Along the way she stepped in front of a moving car and the driver saw her too late.
There is a question, or two, out there. Are people predestined to die at a certain time? And if they somehow survive that moment, does the universe step in to get them where they are suppose to be in the afterlife?
So, you’ve been buried alive. We’re not going to lie to you — things are looking real bleak right now. How you got there is not important. Let’s focus on the immediate problem: You’ve woken up six feet under, trapped in your own coffin and you have no idea how to get out.
Okay, it’s not something that happens everyday, but it does happen. This isn’t good news for the people being buried alive, but history shows us that there were a small percentage though that made it back to the land of the living.
Here are a few instructions to follow and with a little luck you then – probably, maybe – can be one of the lucky ones that made it out.
Stop freaking out!
The first thing to do is to just calm down! Yes, you’re in a real forsaken situation and the stakes are high that you’re going to die a prolonged and uncomfortable death, but it’s no reason for you to freak out, right? This is the time to control your feelings when you feel a panic attack coming on.
Ride the attack out by focusing on what’s happening to you. Try to deal with the problem at hand when the anxiety is gone. Breathing exercises can also help you feel better more quickly and will help to preserve air.
Take stock of what you have at your disposal
Don’t get your hopes up – you’ve probably been buried with nothing useful to aid you in these deathly times. But you still have to have a feel around to see what you can find, hopefully.
Buried wearing a belt? The buckle could be useful as a hard, metallic tool. Check everything on your person. Things like cuff links or a pen could be of immeasurable help to you. If, by some unlikely reason, you were buried with your phone thank Karma and try to call someone. If you don’t have a signal, remember that emergency service numbers could be picked up by any nearby tower, even if you don’t have a service plan. Try their number. Don’t rule anything out.
Morse code for a SOS
This ought to be the first thing you try. With whatever you can get hold of — even your fist if there’s nothing else — start tapping the Morse code for SOS on the lid of the coffin. It’s three quick taps, three long taps, three quick taps. The chances that you’re going to be heard are unspeakably low, but there’s always that odd chance you’ve been buried in a shallow grave. If so, someone hearing you is going to be your ticket out of there.
This has saved people before. In the 19th century, a young woman named Philomele Jonetre was said to have been exhumed from her grave after passers-by heard tapping coming from her coffin lid. Sure, she died pretty much immediately afterward, but, hey, at least she got out — briefly.
Breath slowly and not too much
You are not panicky at this moment because you have followed the above directions. So you must now face the thing that will probably end up killing you – a lack of air. According to popular science, an adult might have around five and a half hours worth of breathable air in such a situation.
Just how long you’ll last depends on a few things like the size of the coffin, your size and how much air you’ve used during your panic attacks before you finally calmed down. You can slow down the clock by taking slow and deliberate breaths.
When you finally come to terms, and accept, that you’re going to die you can at least take solace in the fact that dying from a lack of air isn’t the most painful death in the world. It’s not a great way to go but you’ll lose consciousness before you actually die. Good times.
Break your way out of your coffin
Well, you’re pretty sure no one’s coming to save you and so it’s time to save yourself.
To dig yourself out you’re going to first have to break through the coffin lid. If it’s made of steel you’re dead. If it’s made of cardboard you’re golden. Grab a tool if you can and start grinding at the lid.
Soon enough, dirt is going to start pouring in. Protect your face with an item of clothing to prevent yourself from immediate suffocation. If this works start scraping your way out. This all may sound drastic but people have survived this way before: the Huffington Post reported in 2013 that a man in Brazil dug himself out of his own (admittedly shallow) grave after being injured in a fight.
Pray away the rain
Let’s say you went for it to get out of your grave. Let’s say you somehow managed to split the coffin lid. Let’s also say that, by some astonishing chance, you’ve managed not to suffocate and you can even taste your freedom.
The next thing that you must hope for is that it hasn’t rained in the meanwhile because if it has all your good luck and enterprise is not going to help you one ounce.
Why? Because soil becomes dense when it’s wet. This fact is going to be pertinent when you’re buried in the earth. Wet soil is not your friend because there’s going to be hell to pay trying to dig through it. Light dry soil is definitely your friend.
Take a bizarre number of precautions
If you are like any irrational human being and terrified that this grisly fate can befall you, there are always a few precautions that you can take to help you out. A few tools can be downright handy when you’re buried alive, right? Throw a clause into your will for good measure and demand being buried with a few choice items. Take a page out of the preppers’ book with items like a phone, flashlight, knife and a small shovel. A tactical pen, whatever it is, might also come in handy.
Take an unhinged number of precautions
Let’s say you actually want to take precautions to prevent a premature burial. You will want to do it in the most awesome way imaginable, right? Of course you are. In comes the safety coffin. A few of them include bells placed above the ground that you can ring when you start breathing again.
Or get a coffin with a build-in device that you can hit with your head that will set off a signal or a flag in the land of the living.
Investing in such a coffin can assure that you will rest easy for the rest of your life – and beyond.
Ignore the strange looks and jeers from your friends and family when you put your burial demands on the table. When you dig yourself out of your own grave you’ll be the one laughing — probably maniacally.
Cutest ever! Inspired by the charm of wildlife, especially the owls that live nearby, the 42-year-old Russian artist Marina Yamkovskaya has been creating lovely animals since 2014. And these adorable one-of-a-kind owls are the cutest thing we’ve seen today.
Made out of real fur from recycling outlets and having flexible joints, Marina’s toys look almost too real.

Underwater photography. Hawaiian photographer Christy Lee Rogers creates beautiful scenes of swirling figures swathed in colorful fabrics. She creates luminous large-scale images not by using wet pigments, but rather by completely submerging her subjects in illuminated water and photographing them at night.
These works, presented here, part of Rogers’ most recent series titled ‘Muses’, were in response to a year of personal loss. She shared in an interview that “these final images represent a soft and peaceful place that I imagine exists, where you can be free to let go and experience the beauty surrounding you.”
Rogers grew up in Hawaii and continues to shoot there, though she now lives in Nashville. The photographer recently had a solo show at Art Labor Gallery, who will also be representing her work at PHOTOFAIRS | Shangai that opened September 21, 2018. You can see more from Christy on Facebook and Vimeo.

Miniature Scenes. “On the surface, these photographs confront us with all of the hollow words, catchphrases and banalities we encounter in our daily lives,” says Dr. Christine Donat, who provided the text for Kunert’s online portfolio. “The stereotypical and senseless aspects of human communication cannot be unveiled more convincingly than in their literal conversion into a visual medium.”
The works are a part of Kunert’s series Photographs of Small Worlds, handcrafted models that play with the audience’s perception through the use of darkly satirical twists. Each miniature set is created over the course of several weeks to months, and are not captured until they can perfectly convey the scene without digital assistance.
Kunert’s had a solo exhibition at the Museum Boppard from September 10 to January 28, 2018 shares the same name as his most recent photo book, Wunderland. You can view more of his miniature works and past photo books on his website. (via Cross Connect Magazine)
