Perfectly Timed Photos Snapped Seconds Before Disaster Struck

It’s inevitable in life that we all mess up every now and again. Sometimes this is due to bad luck and other times this is down to our own bad judgments. More often than not, such occurrences aren’t captured on camera, which can make a situation considerably less embarrassing. However, thankfully for us, sometimes they are! It’s not nice to laugh at people when they are in distress, but sometimes it just can’t be helped! Jokes aside though, we do hope that no one in these images were left seriously injured physically or emotionally! Take a look!
