In this article, you will find out one of the five mind-boggling stories in the world.
So the first story happened on July 19, 1957, wherein five American soldiers volunteered to stand below an exploding nuclear missile. The reason was that it was for a science experiment. The test was for a 2KT (kiloton) MB-1 nuclear air-to-air rocket launched from an F-89 Scorpion interceptor. The weird thing was that all five of them survived the ordeal.

Next up is the story of Ming Ming who is a six year old Chinese boy. Ming Ming had awakened from his nap and couldnt find his grandfather so he decided to look for him in the 8th-floor window. He lost his balance and almost fell from the high building. What saved him you ask? The answer was that his ears saved him when they got stuck in the iron grates preventing his death. He was so scared that he screamed so hard making the passers-by below to notice him and call for help. His rescuers were able to free him by using a hydraulic pressure expander to force the bars apart and pull Ming Ming back. You can read more here for an in-depth knowledge.
Way back on May 26, 2013, one man named Harrison Okene survived being buried alive 100 feet below the ocean surface with just a tiny pocket of air. The tugboat he was riding was claimed to have been capsized when he was on his way to the restroom. He got stuck there and for the next 60 hours, he had no food, water, or light and just listened to the sounds of ocean creatures scavenging through the ship on his dead crewmates.

Our next story is so unbelievable that you can not even think it happened in real life. On June 2014, a plane headed for Congo had 18 passengers and two pilots. However, not one of the passengers had a clue that a three-foot-long crocodile was smuggled on board. When the crocodile escaped, it frightened a cabin crew member making her run forward, with the other passengers following. The weight shift caused by the panic affected the plane causing it to stall and plummet to the ground. Reports claim that only one passenger was able to survive it.

The last story happened in June 1985 when good friends Joe Simpson and Simon Yates climbed the Siula Grande. They carried only a little food and camping gears which meant that they had to solely lie on their partner. When they were climbing down, Simpson fell and broke his right leg and heel. Because of this, Yates had to lower Simpson down the mountain using ropes in stages. After several lowerings, they were almost down to the glacier when Yates suddenly felt more weight on the rope and faced with an unseen cliff edge. Yates was in a dilemma when he had to decide whether to die alongside his friend or survive by himself. He quickly chose the latter and expected for Simpson to be dead. Surprisingly, Simpson survived the 50 feet fall into the mountain crevasse To this date, they share their almost death experience through documentaries.
