The Internet is littered with near miss videos, moments captured on film where men and women have inexplicbly escaped death even as the Grim Reaper’s scythe appears to bearing down upon them. This is one such video.
The fact that no-one including the driver Piero Scavone and navigator Diego D’Hérin didn’t suffer so much as a bruise is an absolute miracle. I’ve watched this video a dozen times and I’m still amazed those lucky people lived to see another day.
Regardless of the fact a firefighter bravely came to this lucky construction worker’s rescue, it has to be said his initial individual move to escape the burning building took major balls of steel.
This is quite simply the most chilling tornado footage ever shot. Details about this video are as of yet unknown but what is clear is that the man taping the tornado which flatly destroyed Washington, Illinois laying waste to over 1,000 homes earlier this week, and the rest of his family are probably the luckiest people alive today.
The darkness, the noises, the destruction the tornado inflicts on the poor guy’s house are all equally terrifying but the last few seconds of footage of the surrounding neighbourhood is the most shocking of all.
This woman has the finely tuned reflexes of an Indian mongoose.
