Sometimes you can see trouble coming from a mile away, but that wasn't the case in these two incidents. First, a woman was lounging by the pool when she sensed danger and jumped out of her chair. It's a good thing she did because just moments later, a large tree landed right where she'd been sitting.

Next, an elderly woman was outside during a torrential downpour when disaster almost struck — literally. A bolt of lightning came down and almost hit her, but luckily it struck a nearby roof instead. Although both of these close calls were startling, fortunately there were no injuries reported.

After we've seen so many water crossing fails, we're utterly astonished to see this almost-submerged truck expertly ford a rushing river! View Now
