Accidents happen all the time, and often we walk away miraculously uninjured. What has been your closest call with avoiding serious harm in an accident?
Many many years ago I fell off a 30ft. cliff while skiing (ie, wasn't jumping, accidentally lost traction and fell off the mountain) and hit a few trees on the way down, before coming to rest a few feet from the edge of another, much larger cliff. A minor-ish leg sprain or tendon tear or something like (don't remember exactly) which required crutches for about a week and a little dent in one of my shin bones were all that happened to me. I was very lucky. I haven't been skiing since (although, actually, it sounds like fun sort of, um providing I were to take it easy). About a month later, while hiking, I fell off another cliff and hit a tree only a few feet down, and held onto it while someone helped me up. That time it was all rocks below (probably a 50ft. drop or so) and likely it would have been splat.
