He's Lucky To Be Alive After Being In The Wrong Place At The Wrong Time

Common sense is an essential trait for any human looking to survive in the world. Sadly for this tourist, he seems to have been born without it...


Mike is ViralNova's resident Editor of the Weird. If it makes you say "OMG! That's terrible!!!" then Mike probably wrote it. Despite the subject of his articles Mike is surprisingly well adjusted. When he's not writing, he's making music, performing, and producing podcasts. When it comes to the concept of natural selection, if there's one thing that will keep you from getting killed in this world, it's common sense. Stopping to think for a moment before you do something is a vital part of surviving. Of course, those lacking common sense can still survive a dangerous situation, but the odds are not in their favor. Luckily, for the man in the video below, he somehow managed to beat those odds.

This tourist was taking pictures of planes landing at St. Barts' Gustaf III Airport, which is known for being one of the world's most dangerous jetways. This guy quickly learns how the airport earned that title after nearly losing his head to a plane's landing gear.

Jeez, that was insanely close. I just wonder if the photo was worth him peeing his pants for...my guess is no.
