Two Narrow Escapes, One On Land, One At Sea

Watch what happens to the cyclists when the truck
to their right collides with another truck.  
Today we bring you two lucky escapes. Let's hope you have as fortunate a day as these guys.

The first involves a couple of bicyclists minding their own business peddling down a road when the trucks next to them collide.

It's unclear when and where this video was taken, and the video hasn't been independently verified, but Yikes!

Next we take you to just a tiny bit offshore of Cape Cod, where a shark decided it was lunch time and spotted a seal that would make a nice snack.

As you'll see in the video from the Atlantic White  Shark Conservancy, the seal makes a pretty damn athletic escape.

This might give you second thoughts on swimming at Cape Cod or elsewhere. The incident takes place just 30 feet from shore in less than 10 feet of water.

The video was shot by Greg Skomal of the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries.

As for the shark, he finally got his meal. He ate another seal a little while later.

Here's the video:
