Post your near death experiences , we all have one or two and some have quite a few . I was about 14 and me and dad were moving these 40ft containers around full of new tires here at the shop . We were on the last one and the heaviest , It was full to the gills with new tractor trailer tires and wheels so yea it was heavy . We had them hooked up to our biggest tow truck , a holmes 750 on a ford L9000 , for some reason we had one end picked way up in the air , which is not task for the rig we were using . Dad told me to grab something that was under it and move it . Ok so I run under it , grab said object and as soon as I was stepping back the main chain broke and the container skinned my arm on the way down . Close call , very close call We were at a bad wreck involving a dump truck that had ended up wrapped around a oak tree head on. Well as some of you may know , the Firemen are suppose to cut the battery cables on arrival , the did not do it this time and it almost killed me . We had started pulling it back and I had walked in front of the truck after it cleared the tree , well something shorted out the starter on it and that damn thing cranked back up and was trying its best to eat me . I somehow managed to scramble thru the vines and growth on to the other sdie of the tree '' which it ran back into . It stalled out again and caught fire after that but I voiced my displeasure with the firemen on that one after they scrambled to cut the leads .
