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.

    Who "bastar d ized" the name Donna Banas into banasy? (even going so far as to insultingly use a lower case letter)

      Why on earth would my using lowercase b in my own username insult anyone?
      It certaintly isn't an insult to ME.
      Why would anyone be concerned whether I b a s a r d i z e d my own name or not?
      It is adding a 'Y' to my last name.
      If that can be construed as a b a s t a r d i z a t i o n, ok, but I am doing it to myself, not others.
      A thinking person would be able to discern the difference.
      As I answered before, which one has poitedly ignored, I like the way it looks.

  2. Legal

    It's illegal to forge someones name on the back of a check. Some thieves practice for hours so that the signature will match and the check get cashed. Just a some here EXACTLY copy someones username and try to deceive everyone who is following the thread. "splitting hairs" my ass.

      I find it somewhat amusing that one goes through great lengths to justify one's own behavior as perfectly acceptable.

      Some people DO copy u/n's EXACTLY...but I don't know who those people are, as they have done the same thing to me.
      If one could shed any light on who is doing the hijacking, we would all greatly appreciate it, as it gets on everyone's nerves, and serves no discernable purpose.

      One should probably see a Doctore if one has ass hair splitting.

    Miss Hecht:

    It should be obvious to everyone in the blogging community that I am answering posts that were addressed to me first.
    I have attacked no one, and my posts bear that out.

    And philip, you ought to know mean when you see it, after all YOU trained the brainless wonder puppet to be mean! Just like you. And she steals names repeatedly, as you have trained her to do. You are both liars and idiots!

    And what SHE has failed to realize, if NOT for you, she would have many friends here (plural) instead of one (singular) who is really NOT a friend at all. You chose her so you would have someone you could manipulate, because she was easy to manipulate!

      @Trollbuster, thank you for your due diligence. Count dazzle and Tori in as others who have been trolled. The blogs today are worse than a Kafkaesque nightmare. Time for a siesta.....
