To say that life is full of dangerous surprises is the understatement of the year. No matter who you are, what you’re doing, or where you live, tragedy can strike at any time. Sometimes it’s just a minor mishap, but other times it can be a matter of life and death. Sometimes somebody takes a photograph so perfectly timed that it can never be recreated, no matter how hard you try. Check out the list below for funny pictures taken seconds from an accident. Compiled by PiQueen, the collection is sure to make you laugh, and maybe also wince a little.
