Writer's Block: Close Call

Accidents happen all the time, and often we walk away miraculously uninjured. What has been your closest call with avoiding serious harm in an accident?
I was seven years old and living in a house I affectionately called 'the pool house' (I later lived in the 'Trampoline House', the 'Johnson Tree House', and so on...you get the trend of nicknaming houses I had).  Anyways, this house had a forest (not really).  There was a large tree in our neighbors front yard, surrounded by bushes that were probably six or seven feet tall.  My sister and I like to call this area 'the forest.'

One day, during a garage sale of all things, I decided to climb a little higher than either of us ever had before (we were kids, we challenged each other, I won!)  Of course, I fell.

The bushes that made up our forest probably saved my life, breaking my twenty-something-foot fall.  I was seriously banged up and bruised (my mom was panicking I'd broken my arm - which I didn't) but the scariest part of my accident was the stick that went through my neck.  Probably sounds a bit more dramatic than it really was - it wasn't very thick and it pierced straight through skin and nothing more (I'm still not sure how it happened...)  but it got a good chunk out of me.  ^.^  And that's the closest I've ever come to serious harm.
