10+ Times People Felt Something Was Wrong and Turned Out Being Right
Sometimes our gut feeling tells us something that our eyes and brain don’t. We may have a hunch about something, and when this happens, we should follow our instinct, as it can save us from dangerous situations and allow us to protect others.
- “I smelled burning plastic early in the morning at my family cottage and almost went back to sleep, but I got up to investigate. A socket outside the building had caught fire, and flames were shooting up the wall. The rest of my family was still sleeping, and there wasn’t enough smoke for the alarms to go off. I ran and got the fire extinguisher, got my dad up, put it in his hands, and pointed him toward the fire. I stopped it and called the fire department.” © DanBonham / Reddit
- “Since she was about 5, my sister was always obsessed with tsunamis and would always ask my dad every night before she went to sleep if there would be a tsunami that night (we lived on a beach). About 5 years later, an earthquake struck at about 6 a.m. when our family was holidaying in Samoa. It was only a dull low rumble but went on for over a minute. Everyone at the resort woke up, went outside for a few minutes, and then went back to bed. My sister, obsessed with tsunamis, ran down to look at the water, noticed the sea going out, and saved many lives, including my own. There was about a minute from her noticing till the tsunami hit. Luckily for us, there was a cliff right behind the resort. If not, a lot more people would have been hurt. So something like a gut feeling 5 years in the making.” © MWizzle / Reddit
