List Rules People that almost die. On video.

There's a thin line that separates the people that end up on the "close call video" list and the ones that end up on the "gnarly, awful death video" list. While it's not always fun to think of people dying, it sure is fun to watch people almost dying. Most of the folks in these death defying videos were really asking to be killed in a fantastically awful manor, but there are a couple that really make you go "Whaaaaat?? And he lived??".

If a scooter going head-to-head with a semi-truck, a pitcher almost ending up with a third teste, or a tram car that gives a guy a nudge in a "hey, were you trying to jog in a death defying fashion today" way is not your thing, well, check out these close call videos and make it your thing.

If you think you've seen the best of the teaser videos where people almost end up in a Red Asphalt film, you obviously haven't seen the best of what Russia has to offer. No joke, there's something about "Red Square" that these guys want to see happen literally through their own accidental deaths. These are easily thirteen of the luckiest SOBs whose close call with death got caught on film.
