Haunting Pictures Taken Just Seconds Before Catastrophes.
The Music Died
Popular Mexican singer Jenni Rivera boarded a private plane on December 8, 2012 after performing in Mexico. She was joined by colleagues and friends too. This photo was taken by Rivera's makeup artist 20 minutes before air traffic controllers lost contact with the plane. A day later, the wreckage of the plane was found. Sadly, no one survived the crash. Now, the next photo will make you think twice before climbing anywhere when the weather outside is frightful.
The Climbing Shocker
In 1975, 18-year-old Michael McQuilken and his younger brother and sister decided to spend an otherwise dull afternoon, climbing California's Moro Rock. But it was raining and there was lightning too. When they noticed their hair standing on end, they took a photo. But minutes later, lightning struck 12-year-old Sean. He suffered third-degree burns to his elbows and back, but miraculously survived. But if you ever decide to do a dangerous stunt just for fun, look at the next photo.
Stunt Gone Wrong
Stuntman Robert Overacker rode a jet ski over Niagara Falls, which sounds suicidal, but he planned to deploy a parachute as he went over. Unfortunately, the parachute didn't open and Overacker wound up taking a 180-ft dive at full force, which killed him when he hit the water. Sadly, the stunt was intended to raise awareness for the homeless. Now, next time you're waiting for the subway, you'll want to avoid standing too close to the edge.
New York Post
Ki-Suck Han was drunk, and tried starting a fight with another commuter. But the other guy got the best of him and pushed him away, sending Han tumbling towards the tracks. Witnesses tried to stop the train, but it still struck Han. Ironically, a photographer for the New York Post was on the platform and captured a snap of the whole thing. With all the shocking tragedies, you'll be surprised to learn that the man in the last image of this article didn't actually die.
The Kick That Saved
While visiting Peru, Jared Michael took a walk down the route to Machu Picchu. But then he decided to stop near the train tracks to record a train. The only thing is, he didn't realize how close he was. Fortunately, the train conduct noticed him and kicked Michael in the head to push him away from danger. We should also note that the train was going at 17 mph, so the kick didn't do too much damage.
