This is a question Narrow Escapes

IHateSprouts tells us they once avoided getting caught up in an IRA bomb attack by missing a train. Tell us how you've dodged the Grim Reaper, or simply avoided a bit of trouble.

Potty break
One sunny weekend back in the 90s I was sat in the back of the family car as we sped down the motorway on the way to visit some relative or other. Just another obligatory long car drive to a fun packed weekend of cheek squeezing and "ooh my haven't they grown".
An hour or two into the drive we were pootling along in the middle lane when my brother announced "I want go potty!".
After taking a few moments to assess the urgency of the situation (URGENT: RED ALERT) my dad indicated and pulled out into the outer lane, just as we were passing under a bridge. The next instant a massive digger scoop landed right where our car would have been.

By the time we reached the hard shoulder we'd all shit ourselves and the potty was no longer necessary.
