Would be interested to hear everyone’s?

Mine was when I had a seizure in my sleep last year due to low blood sugar.

Got beaten up from a random attack on Xmas Eve 2003. It's had a devestating effect on my life and the main reason for my depression and anxiety. I won't post details of the attack but the nurse told me when I eventually came round that it's the worst injuries she's ever seen from someone beaten up and surviving. The lad who done it got 6 months and served 3 🙄

15 years ago I was travelling back from work, bombing down the Coast Road towards Tynemouth. As I approached Billy Mill Roundabout, due to a momentary lapse of concentration I was suddenly hurtling towards stationary traffic. I hammered the brakes and went left across 3 lanes, sliding and turning 180 degrees back towards the onrushing traffic. By some miracle, during midweek rush hour there was a gap between the stationary traffic, me and the oncoming traffic. I came to a halt facing the wrong way, straddling 2 lanes with smoke coming from my tyres. The oncoming traffic were all able to slow in time and I executed a perfect 3 point turn and shakily drove home and devoured about 3 gallons of lager to calm my nerves

Other than that, I was a few inches away from a cricket ball to the temple when someone threw a stray ball back during fielding practice

Dont sweat it mate but karma will hopefully kick him in the bollocks and some.
 
Hit by a golf ball when I was 14, I was stood to one side in the rough and the guy pulled the ball hard to the left. Hit me under the arm on the muscle at the back of the armpit, very lucky

Hit black ice doing about 60 mph one Xmas day about 10 years ago. Spun in a complete circle and ended up in a hedge on the opposite side of the road. Not even a scratch on the car.
