It is funny how life can change in the blink of an eye. Just when you least expect it to happen, a major change would sweep into your day to day life and usurp your otherwise peaceful existence.

We, as humans are creatures of habit. We like to keep things constant and repetitive in order to feel a certain sense of control. If what happened today was successful, it probably means that tomorrow would give the same outcome. But sometimes life throws us a curveball and there is nothing that we can do to prevent it from hitting us straight between the eyes. We’re not sure who’s the pitcher, but they are definitely the last ones laughing.

Nature can be amazing, a bit freaky and downright terrifying, just think of the butterfly effect. Imagine the fragile winds of a butterfly and now imagine that each tiny bat of them might potentially cause a tornado later in time. Of course, this is just a theory and there are many factors involved in this, but it goes to say that every action is linked to another action and a subsequent reaction, no matter how small or gigantic it might be. Everything happens for a reason, be it strong winds, floods, earthquakes or even the mere falling of a building facade as you can see in this footage.

Not all viral videos are about cats chasing their own tails. In fact, a lot of the videos that make insane rounds on the Internet show people having near death experiences, because humankind just loves a good scary story and this one is no exception.

In this viral footage, shot on September 18 in the town of Vitebsk in Belarus, a young man notices that his life is in immediate danger from being crushed under a huge loose piece of facade from the building he was walking under and he escapes just in the nick of time. You can notice how heavy that piece of cladding was, as even the CCTV camera was shaking when the piece broke off from the building.

Later that same lucky young man said: 'That evening I went to throw out the boxes from the goods, I walked back and then the wall cladding fell from the wall. The wind that day was very strong, cars were droning in the street, so I didn't hear any sounds of falling objects. I still don't understand how I managed to react and jump off'.

What he is really grateful about is that his quick feet are what probably saved his life. He should be dubbed 'the luckiest man alive' following this near death experience. Someone send him to get some lottery tickets, or send him in the woods to look for truffles!

    So happy for the young man. The city building inspectors need to revisit the method used to secure the facade. Chances are there are more working loose.
