Life is beautiful, it’s more when there is hope fighting against all the odds. Our lives are full of good and bad things. Sometimes weird things happen in our daily lives and sometimes there are things that happen at the same time by accident. Here we have collected some amazing coincidences from around the world, their timings couldn’t have been any better.
These are the 17 Amazing Coincidences You Won’t Believe Happened, No. 6 will definitely blow your mind.
1. Falling baby from a building saved twice by the same man
In 1937, a young, super responsible mother somehow dropped her baby out of a fourth story building.
A local street sweeper named Joseph Figlock happened to be walking underneath at the time and was struck in the head and shoulders by the falling infant. Miraculously, the baby lived, though he and Figlock sustained injuries.
The following year, a different, though equally careless mother allowed her two-year-old son David Thomas to plummet from a high-rise window. Joseph Figlock, who was sweeping in an alley trying to make his beautiful city shine, was again struck in the head and, again, neither he nor the child were killed.
Must’ve been quite a catch, this amazing Figlock character. Women can’t seem to help throwing their children at him and look at the odds of a man being at the right place at the right time, two years in a row.
2. Left handed president coincidence
Only 10% of Americans are left-handed but when you look at the number of US presidents were left handed, you would expect to see the same numbers but this is totally opposite here. Out of the last 14 US presidents, more than half of them were left handed. This includes 5 out of the last 7. Over the past two decades, nearly every presidential candidate has been left-handed. In 2008, both Barack Obama and John McCain were left-handed. In 1992, all three candidates for president were lefties. And Donald Trump recently broke this trend because he is a super human.
3. The unsinkable Hugh Williams, a professional shipwreck survivor
Planning an ocean voyage and concerned about safety? You probably don’t need life jackets and other equipment, you just need to change your name to Hugh Williams.
In 1660, a ship sank in the Dover Straits. A man named ‘Hugh Williams’ was the only survivor. In 1767, a second ship sank in the same area. The only survivor was another ‘Hugh Williams’. In 1820, a ship capsized on the Thames. The only survivor was a man named ‘Bruce Wayne’ – just kidding; it was our own beloved Hugh Williams. Finally, in 1940, a ship was destroyed by a German mine. Only two survived: a man and his nephew who was named after him, and the name was *drum roll* – Hugh Williams, ladies, and gentleman.
4. Deus Ex-Twin Towers Omen
During the production of the critically acclaimed 2000 PC game Deus Ex, the skybox artist neglected to include the Twin Towers to the New York City skyline. Some reports say he plain forgot, or, according to another explanation, memory constraints made it impossible to render the towers, so they had to be written out of the game’s fiction. The in-game explanation for the discrepancy was a terrorist attack. There is no way that they knew that a year later that a real terrorist attack would take down the towers. It is a spooky coincidence.
