Gotta Watch: Narrowly escaping with their lives

We've recently received lots of videos of narrow misses and people barely avoiding catastrophes. They faced everything from natural disasters to auto accidents, but these lucky people managed to get away without serious injuries. You’ve Gotta Watch these great escapes.

Tornado throws bus

Here’s dramatic new video and audio recordings of the moment that an EF4 twister hit Henryville, Indiana. A bus driver carrying a busload of children must decide what to do to save them when she sees the tornado touch down. Her quick thinking gets the kids off the bus before it’s thrown into a restaurant. Watch the shocking surveillance video from inside the bus.

Fireman: Roof under him 'just dropped'

Three firefighters in Michigan were fighting a fire at a dry cleaning business when the roof collapsed underneath them. They go from ventilating the roof to diving for safety in a scene that looks like it’s right out of a movie.They say the didn't realize just how scary situation was until they saw the video.

Car swerves toward biker

This video out of Texas shows a motorcyclist barely avoiding a car that is spinning out of control. We debated about how many inches this biker was from the sedan. Watch and decide for yourself.

    ...not to mention the taking of the name 'Donna Banas' and perverting it into *banasy*. That's Big B Banas, and little bizzy b banasy. (btw Donna, have you read where 95% of the bees in Arizona are now Africanized killer bees? 65% in Socal)

    • It's........BANASY©! Ta Da!

      Mr. Douglas, what I do with my own name doesn't justify someone else doing it.
      It is merely adding a 'Y' to my last name.
      I like the way it looks in lowercase.
      When I first met you, you were using lowercase p h i l.
      And...so?
      How I write my own name is of no consequence; but as leeintulsa put it, another puzzle slips into place.

      Since you remember that coversation about the bees so well, Philip, why is it that you cannot remember who hides what in the laundryroom?
      Hint: it isn't me, and never was.

      This convo is silly.

    @Suoperman. Were you trolled, or did someone hijack your username exactly and pose as you? (Big difference between someone posting as Supermoan and Superman)

    Hogwash.
    Doing it all all is disrespectful, demeaning, and dismissive of the person whose name is getting b a s t a r d i z e d.
    To say that there is any difference at all is spliting hairs, and enables one, in their own mind, to keep justifying their own repugnant behavior.

  15. Dr. Pharmoney

    It is not wise to choose black coffee over Ritilin and Prozac for your problem child. It means that YOU will have to deal with him instead of the drugs doing it for you. (read blackbox FDA label warnings if you can't quite grasp what "it" is) Not to mention, Dr. Pharmony is in the drug business, not the coffee trade. Sure I'd push Columbian coffee on you if my name were Juan Valdez. But I'm a prescription writer.
