Life is unpredictable, and these people had no idea what would soon shake up their entire world. They just happened to be in the right place at the right time and would find just how unpredictable things can get. After viewing their stories, there's no doubt you'll look at your life from a new perspective. So what are you waiting for? Read on to discover people who experienced karma in unprecedented ways.
When Life Flashes Before Your Eyes
When this person got in their car and began driving, they couldn't even imagine what would happen. A situation that suddenly took a dark turn and could have ended terribly. The car was a mere inches away from falling into the water but stopped moments before. It might have felt like the worst day ever for this person, but hopefully, they realized just how fortunate they really were. Though the car was probably damaged, they made it out okay.
Though they got into a pretty bad accident and almost completely fell into the water, luckily, they were saved by a random set of stairs!
Time to Start Digging
There was a guy who worked on the Ron Coleman mine in Arkansas when he found something that would change his entire life. He spent four days extracting minerals when he came across the most enormous crystal he had ever seen! He just so happened to find a block of crystals that weighed in at 2000-pounds. The crystal cluster was quickly taken to be examined by professionals and what he found out left him truly speechless.
After the crystal returned from the appraisal, it was reported that it was worth 3.5 million dollars! Definitely worth dealing with the dirt!
The Scariest Close Call
This person was driving on the highway when a massive piece of sharp metal flew towards their car. It barely missed the glass, which could have been potentially fatal for the driver. It's probably no surprise that whoever was driving this car must have felt a near-death experience was about to occur! This looked absolutely terrifying. Though it was a scary moment, they managed to survive. Death just wasn't in the cards for them that day.
If this piece of metal had moved just a few more inches, then the ending of this story would be completely different.
That Fish Should Thank Its Lucky Stars
Out of all possibilities of what could potentially happen next, luck was on the side of this fish. The owner of this little fishy friend walked into their room and realized this vase was knocked over. It could have tipped entirely over if the wall wasn't as close as it was to the nightstand. That would have been disastrous, resulting in water all over the floor, and most importantly, the fish would have been killed. That poor little guy didn't even see it coming.
Thanks to the placement of the furniture, the fish was saved! If there were just a tiny bit more room between the wall and the nightstand, that fish wouldn't have lived to see another day.
This Is One Way to Entertain a Toddler
Arcades are a place to let go and have fun, especially for kids, where they can roam free and play their hearts out. With dozens of fun games everywhere, you can collect tickets and potentially get a cool gift. Who wouldn't enjoy that? Well, this little kid got the arcade experience of their dreams. Little did they know they would hit the jackpot and collect as many tickets as they could possibly imagine.
The little kid was clearly in shock when they won all those tickets! There were so many. How could they possibly pick out all her gifts?
A Perfectly Spaced Fall
We've all seen trees that have fallen on cars before, which is absolutely terrifying. It can cause some costly and irreparable damage. While this moment could have also gone entirely wrong, it ended in the best-case scenario, which must have left the car owners ecstatic. In this case, the tree fell perfectly between the two vehicles, leaving them unscathed. Even luckier for the owners is that no one was in the cars!
A huge sigh of relief must have occurred when the owners came out to their cars and saw this. A moment of gratitude, please.
Talk About Hidden Treasure at Home
Have you ever randomly found money on the ground when you were out? Or did laundry and found some coins you forgot in the pocket of a pair of jeans? Well, that feeling of surprise and excitement is unbeatable. Especially for these new house owners when they discovered their own treasure. After a couple bought a new home, they moved in and began remodeling each of the rooms. But they never could've expected to find what they did.
When they started working in the kitchen, they realized a hidden safe was in the floorboards. They opened it up and discovered a Bingo card and 51,000 dollars.
One Wire Could've Changed Everything
This driver was lucky enough to escape this terrible accident without significant injuries. When they mistakingly left their car in drive instead of reverse and pressed the gas pedal, they went straight through the wires in front of them. A simple mistake that, in a split second, could've cost them their life. The car seemed to defy gravity by getting stuck in that position, but good thing it did; otherwise, the driver wouldn't have survived.
This driver must be grateful to whoever installed those wires because they were just strong enough to hold the car in place.
If You're Scared of Heights, Look Away
A lot of people are scared of driving or heights; combining the two in this particular situation is terrifying. The thought of driving on a mountain and skidding over the side is something out of a nightmare. But for this person, it was a living nightmare. Luckily the car skidded to a stop only moments before it would have tumbled over the side of the mountain. This could've ended in a fatal situation so good they made it out alive.
This might've been an extremely unfortunate situation, but the universe was on their side for this person, and they get to live to tell the tale.
This Proves Why Helmets Are Crucial
The number one safety advice when doing any hard labor or even riding a bicycle or scooter is to wear a helmet. Well, for this construction worker, this day in his life will go on to prove exactly why they're so necessary. He was working when a sharp piece of metal fell directly on him and went through his helmet. Without that layer of protective gear, it would've definitely gone through his head. A moment he'll never forget.
How fortunate this person was; otherwise, this experience could have been detrimental. This story would be very different if he didn't have his helmet on.
This Is Something Out of a Superhero Movie
What is the likelihood of two bullets hitting each other? It's something basically unheard of until now. In this case, what people would assume is impossible actually happened. Instead of the two bullets piercing through someone, which could have been devastating, they hit each other at the exact same moment. Effectively this prevented the situation from becoming dire precisely because of their collision. Whoever was standing in the middle of this must've been in awe.
Whoever was the target of these bullets must have felt like their life was magical after realizing what they had just survived.
How on Earth Did They Manage This
When this person accidentally shredded a receipt, they thought they would never be able to get it back. They only realized after that it had some information they needed, but surely it was too late. Regardless, they thought, why not just open it up, rummage through the paper and see if maybe they could find it? Even though shredders are meant to shred paper, sometimes they miss a piece or two. Much to their surprise, the exact bit of information they needed was sitting right there on top of the pile of paper.
What are the odds that they'd be able to recover something like that? Very slim, but luckily for this person, it all worked out in the end.
London Bridge Is Falling Down
The thought of driving and seeing a tower falling over, coming right at you, is absolutely appalling. The feeling that must have taken over this guy when he suddenly realized a colossal metal structure was about to crush his vehicle and, therefore, him, too, is impossible to imagine! It probably felt like the unluckiest day in his life. That was until moments later when it stopped just seconds away from the car.
This was a matter of centimeters away from a severe fatal accident that could have killed the driver and anyone else in the car. Was it a coincidence or meant to be?
This Man Walked Away With a Dresser Full of Treasure
Yard sales, garage sales, and estate sales are all considered places where people sell their old junk for super cheap in hopes of getting rid of useless stuff. Who could've thought that buying something from a random estate would result in an exciting find? When a man decided to buy an old dresser from his neighborhood's estate sale, he thought he was just getting a new dresser. That was until he opened the drawer and was stunned at what he had discovered.
When he opened it up, he discovered a collection of antique jewelry, coins, and money was all tucked away in a locked bottom drawer. What a find.
Watch Where You Step
Stepping on a rusty nail might be one of the worst pains, not to mention the fear of contracting tetanus. This person was walking when they suddenly felt pressure shoot through their shoe. They realized they had just stepped on a nail, which fully stabbed through their shoe. But shockingly, it went directly in between their toes, barely missing the flesh. A strange but lucky coincidence with a photo for proof!
If the nail had stabbed just slightly more to the left or right, it would have gone right through their toe! The very thought of that is painful.
Barely Escaping a Shark Attack
Did you think it was possible to be bitten by a shark gently? Well, this woman experienced something truly unique and frightening. She was swimming when a shark suddenly attacked her. The shark bit her but didn't fully sink its teeth into her, instead just scraping her skin. Although it still left teeth marks, it could've been much worse. She's fortunate that it didn't result in losing a limb or even her life.
Whether it was fate or the shark realized it really wasn't that hungry after all, she was basically given a second chance at life.
These People Did Not Have a Blast
Obviously, weaponry is incredibly dangerous, and that is precisely its whole purpose. But an accident could be detrimental if something malfunctions, like a rocket. In this case, that's exactly what happened. Whoever was in that tank was extremely lucky that the projectile barely skimmed its side. If it had landed slightly in a different direction, it could have destroyed the entire tank and everyone in it. But fortunately, it only ripped through the side of the vehicle, and no one was harmed.
Apparently, this picture is of a BM-30 Smerch launcher which is no joke, but those around at the time escaped unharmed.
This Is Not How Rainy Days Were Supposed to Go
When you park your car on a rainy day, the last thing on your mind is whether or not the floor will dissipate. But this person turned out to be unbelievably lucky. She returned to her car after it had been parked for a while. Only moments after she pulled out of the spot she noticed the floor had collapsed. She unintentionally moved her car only a few seconds before this happened; her timing was impeccable.
Her car would have been stuck if she hadn’t moved in time! And who knows how much worse it could have become.
A Once in a Lifetime Moment
These travelers had planned a fantastic trip that included a visit to The Great Wall of China. They were excited and looking forward to this incredible experience. However, when they arrived, they realized there were barely any other visitors there. It appeared as if they were the only people on the stairs, which was confusing and slightly eerie to them. But, of course, it made for a fantastic photo opportunity anyway.
Not only did they get a cool photo with no one else in the frame, but their timing was also perfect. They visited the wall at the exact time of year when the snow was melting on one side of the steps only. It definitely made for a unique photo.
One Egg, Triple the Yolk
This person went to the store and bought a regular carton of eggs. Once they cracked open the first egg so they could begin cooking, they were super confused. They double-checked the carton to ensure it was a standard one, which it was. But something remarkable happened, an egg that came with not one but three yolks! This was definitely a lucky carton of eggs, especially for a sunny-side-up-lover!
Maybe it was an omen for good luck or just an extra tasty omelet, one only an egg lover could dream of.
These Blueberries Are Supernatural
Blueberries are small and tasty yet pretty expensive in many countries around the world. So when this person opened their carton of blueberries and discovered what was inside, they couldn't help but jump for joy. They come across the most gigantic blueberries that looked luscious and plump. The blueberry gods definitely blessed them because they were perfect. Imagine all the things you could make with these? Blueberry pie, pancakes, jam, so many tasty possibilities.
Luckily, there's no need to be stingy with these berries because there is plenty to go around! If only blueberries were always this big.
Winning These Contests Seemed Impossible
It's common for several companies to pull outlandish marketing stunts to convince buyers to buy more of their products. The odds of actually winning the crazy prizes they advertise are minuscule, but from time to time, one lucky person wins something. Well, for this person, they were eating their way through a bag of crunchy Cheetos when they found a bizarre-looking one. Much to their surprise, the bag said someone could win a grand prize if they found a specific Cheeto that looked exactly like the one they were about to eat!
This woman snapped a photo and contacted the company to claim the prize. Soon enough, she became 50,000 dollars richer, all thanks to a bag of very lucky Cheetos.
A Dream Come True
This pizza brand sells each package with three frozen pizzas. So that is precisely what one customer expected to get when they bought a box and made their way home. They anxiously ripped the box open as soon as they arrived, hungry and ready to bake some pizza. However, four pizzas slid out. Almost like a gift from above! Who wouldn't want more pizza? Now it's only fitting for them to throw a pizza party!
Who wouldn't want to pay for three but get four pizzas? The factory worker packaging the pizzas must have felt nice that day and threw an extra one there, knowing it would brighten someone's day.
An Inch Away From Destruction
This guy came incredibly close to losing his car due to a fallen tree, but fate had other plans. It must have been his lucky day because this tree split down the middle, with multiple hefty branches falling right over. It came so close you could barely fit a finger between the branch and his car, yet it didn't touch it! In the end, the vehicle and the driver were untouched.
Who could've expected a tree to split like that and fall over? No one could anticipate that, but fortunately, it didn't actually do any damage.
The Best Airplane Seat Ever
It was this guy's lucky day when he boarded his airplane and realized what seat he had received. He sat in the emergency row, which purposely didn't have an extra seat in front of it, so there would be easy access to the emergency door. But this meant he had so much extra legroom at no additional cost. He scored, and the best part is that he wasn't anticipating it; it was bound to be a great flight.
Once he realized all the space he had, he instantly snapped a picture and posted it on social media. It was too exciting not to share with the world.
When Reality Is Better Than Expectations
Advertising is known to make products seem way better than they actually are. Therefore, many people don't even get surprised anymore when they get less than what they bought, just like purchasing a bag of chips with 90% air and 10% chips. But this particular person got a special surprise. They opened up their ice cream cone to find two scoops on top instead of the standard one. What a tasty and sweet surprise.
Two is always better than one. Especially, in this case, expecting one scoop and getting two! It must have been good karma coming back his way.
Good Karma Was on Their Side
This couple was on vacation, just hanging out on the beach. They started recording themselves doing some stunts for fun when the people around them suddenly began gasping and reacting weirdly. They quickly realized something was off, but they didn't notice that the airplane above them was flying dangerously low at that moment. Since someone was filming the stunt, they later realized that the plane could have easily knocked her to the floor. They lucked out and even got a crazy picture out of it.
There is no way any of their friends or family would've believed this story when they went home. They were lucky to survive and catch the moment on camera.
The Best Surprise to See in a Snack Bag
Have you ever had a hard day, felt really down, and decided you knew exactly what would make you feel better? Heading to the store and buying your favorite snack. Well, your day would instantly turn around if this is what you found inside. This lucky gal opened a bag of her favorite crackers, which are usually bite-sized. But something magical happened, a jumbo-sized cracker was inside! It instantly put a big smile on her face.
What a way to turn a bad day around. Maybe it was pure luck or destiny, but she gets to enjoy her tasty treat even happier now.
Is This Workplace Hiring
This guy became fortunate in a very unusual situation. His workplace was getting ready to surprise all of the employees with a present for their hard work. But apparently, when the boss arrived, only one person was working and everyone else left early. Instead of waiting for a different day, the boss gave this guy all the gifts. Unlucky for the other employees but incredibly lucky for this one guy.
Apparently, staying late at work sometimes could pay off, especially if your boss is in a good mood like this encounter. This employee probably has no regrets after walking away with all of those gifts.
A Small Scratch That Could've Been Fatal
This guy was driving on the road when something peculiar happened to him. Out of nowhere, a pole came crashing straight through the car's window and could have quickly meant a harrowing ending to this guy's life. Fortunately, it just scratched him and tore his shirt open. But he wasn't seriously injured; as for the car, that's debatable. It would probably be best if this guy had good car insurance.
This person managed to make their way out of this scary situation pain-free and unscathed. Something like this could have been hazardous and life-threatening; so glad they're okay.
This Situation Could've Been Very Different
Running over a nail is a driver's worst nightmare. It's incredibly dangerous and could pop a tire, potentially leading to a car accident. Most times, even if the puncture is relatively tiny, you still need to replace the tire just to be safe. And the tire replacement alone is super expensive, making the entire experience incredibly unpleasant. So luckily for this person, the nail was just lodged in the tire.
Coincidentally the nail hit the tire but didn't actually puncture it. Instead, it very strategically got stuck in a crevice of the tire without ever damaging it.
An Avocado Sent From Heaven
Avocados are basically a delicacy, and they can be very expensive in some parts of the world. They also tend to grow with a giant pit on the inside, which means sometimes there is hardly any edible avocado and mostly pit. However, this time around, the avocado gods must have sent this avocado down because it has no pit at all. This is absolutely unheard of for this delicious green fruit.
This must have been the most enjoyable avocado-eating experience one could possibly imagine. Now that's definitely the result of some mystical superpowers, no doubt.
Soggy Toilet Paper Would've Been Unfortunate
Accidentally dropping a toilet paper roll in a toilet is a horrific accident. It's an entire roll of paper that goes to waste and feels like an avoidable mistake. Not to mention it's kind of gross, and the only way to get it out is by sticking your whole hand in the toilet. But for this person, the roll slipped from their hands and landed perfectly on the toilet seat—what a huge relief.
The toilet paper roll could have fallen onto the dirty floor or right into the toilet bowl. But it strategically fell in the right place; now, no paper goes to waste!
When a Bird Makes Your Day
This driver couldn't have anticipated the day he was about to have and how it would turn around in a split second, saved by this random bird. He was speeding down the road when he saw the lights from the speed camera flash and knew he was caught on camera. Usually, it snaps a picture of your license plate, and you are billed a speeding ticket. But little did he know this bird was looking out for him.
The bird flew in front of it at that exact moment that the camera snapped the photo. It perfectly blocked out the driver's license plate number, and to his luck, he never got a speeding ticket.
A Strange Coincidence
This is quite a bizarre picture, but if you look closely, you'll notice a few things. First, this television is mounted very weirdly and looks like it's about to fall, but that's not even the issue in the photo. An arrow was shot near the TV and could've damaged it. Instead, it landed perfectly in the USB slot without cracking the screen. Why would anyone play with an arrow near a TV anyway? Regardless, they lucked out.
Out of sheer coincidence, this person still has a functioning TV. However, they might want to consider playing sports near a television.
This Must Mean an Abundance of Luck
Many cultures have different symbols for luck. Four-leaf clovers are often associated with Ireland and St. Patrick's Day and are widely recognized as good luck symbols. If you ever find a four-leaf clover, it apparently means you will have a lifetime of lucky encounters. But what about five-leaf clovers? This person found one and had to take a picture of how pretty it looked. Does this mean they get double the luck now?
It could be possible that five leaves are even better than four; if it is, this guy is super lucky! Though it’s not for sure, it still looks really cool.
Change Is Sometimes Good
This woman was shopping at her local grocery store, checked out, and received some change. But she only realized the change she received was incorrect when she arrived home. After closely inspecting her new coins, she noticed a strange dime. She had never seen anything like this before. She was confused and did some research online when she quickly discovered this dime dated back to the early 1900s and was worth way more than ten cents.
Sometimes a cashier giving you the wrong change can lead to a once-in-a-lifetime moment. There's always an opportunity for luck coming your way.
A VIP Parking Spot
Finding a good parking spot is like an extreme sport in most cities. It takes skill and mainly a random stroke of luck. However, this lucky spot could have quickly turned into misfortune when their car barely made it out of a sticky situation. It sits just low enough that when a tree fell sideways, it completely missed the vehicle. Talk about fate; having your car crushed by a tree could be horrific, but this person's vehicle was entirely untouched.
This entire situation could've been horrible, but this guy was clearly owed some good karma from the universe because it turned out pretty well.
Whatever You Do, Don't Look Down
A truck was driving on a dangerous road when he lost control and crashed, falling right over the barrier. And what was just over that barrier? A cliff with a petrifying and massive drop to nothing but sharp rocks. Absolutely nothing could have braced him for that accident; the car would have been completely destroyed, and the driver would've fallen to their death. Terrifying, but luckily, it got stuck right on edge.
Though the passenger had a near-death experience, he lived to tell the tale. People were able to crawl onto the side of the mountain and help get him out.
Who Needs Car Insurance Anyway
It's pretty common for trees to fall over, especially in bad weather. And if it's someone's unlucky day, they could be the target of this unfortunate situation. A tree is so heavy that if it fell on top of a car, it could completely ruin it. Luckily for these two drivers, the tree fell between their vehicles, leaving them perfectly fine. It was such a close call, but they made it out alive and with no scratch on the cars.
Thankfully, there was a little space between these two parked cars, and it was just enough for the tree to miss them entirely—a fortunate accident.
