Yes. When I was around two, I drank a fairly large amount of turpentine. They didn't know if I was going to make it. Not sure how long I spent in one of those oxygen tent things, or how long I was out of consciousness. It did, however, scar my lungs. It's probably a good thing that I never smoked.

I was like, 9?And I was in the wave pool, it was an over packed day... the park was definetly over the capacity limit. And the waves came on and I was deeper into the water, and there are tons of people with tubes and some jerk pushed me under. I tried getting back up and there were just tubes nad people all above me and I kept getting pushed back down :(
Scary feeling.

Whenever I'm in the ocean and the waves pound down on me many times in a row, I always feel like I'm going to drown, but I think it's just because I was panicky at the time.
When I look back at those times, I wouldn't call it a near death experience.

I was in the Palestine Research Center library in Beirut when the Israelis tried to blow it up. I still have the scars, and remain deaf in one ear.

When I was 12 I almost died of an asthma attack after a truck filled with chlorine crashed around the corner and sent the stuff flying all over the place. They had to rush me to the hospital in an ambulance and all that. I don't remember any of it except being wheeled in. My heart rate was like 200 bpm.

My lungs aren't my strongest organ.

I was 5, taking a bath, and I picked up a curling iron, got shocked, and dropped it. I had no idea what a curling iron was, but I stood up in the bath and reached over to pick it up.

While I was being shocked I imagined I was operating a jackhammer. Luckily my dad was there with me and he reached in and pulled the curling iron out.

There we go. That's me almost dying, and I could've sworn that I already posted that somewhere on this site. But whatever.

Yeah it was like 15 years ago and i was swimming in huntington beach CA. My ex Girlfriend was lying on the beach reading while i was swimming. I got caught in a riptide and i couldnt make it back to shore! It was only about 50 yards but this riptide kept pulling my feet out from under me, and i am not the best swimmer. It crossed my mind i could be done for a few times. But i kept fighting the tide until my energy was almost gone and finally ripped my way out of it back onto dry land and fell down in exhaustion on the sand. A couple of a-holes a few yards away were laughing at me. I would have punched them but i was too fatigued!!!
