One In A Million Life Moments For Lucky People

Someone on AskReddit asked for people to share those miraculous moments they experienced that defied the odds. We live in the middle of chaos, and it's easy to will ourselves into believing that a life of routine is shielded from moments of complete unpredictability that simply defy rhyme and reason. These people lived down their miraculous moments, and some of them sound like they got just the kinds of second chances they needed. Got to be careful out there!

If we woke up to this we'd probably be convinced that the house was haunted. So it's a good thing there was cameras running to capture the magic. We understand that a stack of Roombas is a trivial thing, but seriously, what are the odds?

If you thought you were muddling through a tough Wednesday, sit back and count your lucky stars that you're not the guy who threw away his life savings (that he kept in a shoe box) of $23K. Ouch. 

Last Thursday this man from Ashland, Oregon accidentally threw away his life savings of $23K into the recycling bin. Upon realizing his dreadful mistake he immediately contacted Recology, which is a company that provides garbage service to over a million homes and businesses in Washington, Oregon, and California. The odds of anything shaking out in his favor from there were quite slim, but lo and behold he ended up getting the lucky break of his life. 

"We take quite a bit of material every day so the odds of finding that are not much better than a needle in a haystack," said Linda Wise, general manager of the Samoa Resource Recovery Center operated by Recology.

Miraculously $22,940 of his savings managed to stay in the shoebox without falling out. Now that is just wild. Maybe he won't be keeping his life savings in a damn shoe box for m

You've probably heard the phrase, "lucky duck," and in this case, these ducklings really are quite lucky! Terry Hill and Cathy Hogg, who both run the New Forest Home Care Companions in Fordingbridge, heard a mother duck crying and sprung straight into action! 

Mr Hill told BBC News, "Every year there's a duck that nests in the neighbor's garden and every year they come down the road to a stream in our garden but there are also two drains outside. Usually we put cardboard over the drain to stop them falling down but this year we missed it. We took up the two manhole covers and used a hanging basket to get two out. The mother wouldn't leave and stayed there until we got them all. Initially she was alarmed but then she realized were trying to help her."

Thank you Mr Hill and Mrs Hogg's for your quick response! Watch the video below:
