It can be instinctual to hold onto the throttle of your dirt bike at all times, but when you start sliding off your bike, it might be a good idea to let go. One rider found out that lesson the hard way when he lost control of his bike and crashed into the front of his home. He messed up his knee a little bit, but he'll be alright. Especially considering that he nearly hit a tree in his yard.
Speaking of lucky, one family in Vietnam would consider themselves very lucky indeed. As they sat down to enjoy dinner, their youngest child noticed something strange about the ceiling fan. That kid was onto something because a moment or two later the fan fell. Amazingly, all the blades missed everyone, landing perfectly between the family members.
