Brushes With Death Video Shows Heart-Stopping Accidents And Close Calls

Planes, trains and automobiles -- actually, there aren't any planes, but there sure are a boatload of people nearly getting snuffed out by locomotives and cars.

This mashup combines some of the best (or, perhaps worst) clips on the Internet of near-misses, close calls and brushes with death -- hence the name. If you don't find yourself gasping, or at the very least shaking your head a few times, you should probably check your pulse.

Also, don't try any of these stunts at home.
