Little did the businessman rushing to work know that a bus driver would lose focus and plow into a station wagon at the red light. Fortunately Mr. Frogger turned his head with just enough time to outrun both the car and bus; a millisecond later and he might’ve been roadkill. Yet today he’s (presumably) alive and well…and in a GIF, not a grave.

After the jump, here’s 15 more GIFs of unsuspecting people who found themselves only inches from game over. You won’t believe their luck…and won’t believe your eyes.
