25 Average People Reveal The Single Scariest Thing They Have Ever Seen IRL

There’s nothing scarier than life itself. Just ask these people from Ask Reddit.

14. I witnessed a brutal street fight

“Back in the day I was a bouncer and I saw one guy suplex another guy like Guile from streetfighter 2. Grabbed him around the waist and flipped backwards lifting the other guy over him to hit the ground headfirst. Fast and HARD.

It was the sound his head made smacking the dancefloor that I won’t forget. It was fucking horrid. Sledgehammer to a melon in front of a mic sorta thing. They were already pushing and shoving right by the DJ so the music had cut off, I and another guy were pushing through the crowd to get to the two guys when it happened right in front of me.

In the next few minutes his head swole up so big. The knot on his skull was like a cartoon. Huge and looked like it was getting bigger visibly. Dude was slurring, mumbling, drooling and blinking with no control over himself. I’d seen a gazillion people knocked clean out to sleep before but somehow this was far worse. He just looked like a destroyed wreck of a person.

Ambulance showed up and took him away and no, I never found out what happened to him. I can’t imagine it was a recovery though. I’d be surprised if he survived.

I take street fights and real life violence way more seriously now.” — Lost_Afropick

15. I watched as a man was shot to death

“A man get chased down and shot to death in the middle of the street. Was chaotic and shortly after about 20 people went scrambling in different directions. Had to stay and give the police a statement.” — afaintsmellofcurry

16. I was threatened by a junkie

“The syringe a junkie slipped out of his sleeve right after saying ‘I have AIDS. Give me your money or I’ll stick you with this.'” — nianp
