50 Survivors Of Attempted Murder Tell Their Real Life Horror Story 

These people from Ask Reddit are lucky to be alive.

1. When I was 6 years old I saw my bio dad stab my bio mom 20 times in front of my little brother and I. He took my bio mom’s blood and rubbed it on my brothers face and said, “This is your mother’s blood.” She almost died right in front of us. They got her to the hospital in enough time to save her life. But I was scary and I remember everything. He only went to jail for 8 years. He claimed he heard demons telling him to do it.

2. I was 3 years old and went to this lady’s house for swimming lessons. What my parents didn’t know was that the lady hated boys.

One day she threw me in the pool and left me to die. I sank to the bottom. I was under for several minutes.

Some how a teenager saw this, jumped the fence and rescued me. The ambulance came and I was in ICU for a week. My parents never found out who the teenager was.

The lady wasn’t arrested. The cops told my parents that it would cost them money to take her to court. A lawyer read an article in the newspaper and decided to go after the lady, pro bono. She had several businesses involving kids. He was able to shut her down. She ended up as a waitress and eventually got cancer and died

As a lovely parting gift, growing up I sometimes felt like I was drowning when taking a shower or in water. I’ve over came this and eventually got a scuba license and still enjoy swimming.

3. I lost a piece of my ear when a guy tried to shoot me.

I was on my way home from the pub one night, to get home I had to walk through a rough part of town. I’m not unfamiliar with the area and I know a few people around there on good terms so I know the rules about walking around there at night. Anyway, in one house there was an argument, and I heard things were getting smashed up. I’ll admit, I kinda snitched.

I pulled out my phone, opened up Facebook and sent a message to the local police. Then there was a fucking gunshot! This guy comes running out, and I’m right on the path where he was running to, he just stops, raises his gun and fucking shoots!

I think the noise from the explosion from the gunshot hurt more than a bullet ripping out a chunk of my ear. Then again I was probably in shock. I just stood there and froze up, thankfully the guy didn’t stop to make sure he hit me and just kept running as another guy came running out of the house with a gun in his hand too.

He asked me where he went but I was just frozen in shock and had blood running down my neck.

Anyway, cops arrived a few minutes later followed by an ambulance.

That was 6 years ago now I think. Turns out the guy shot his girlfriend’s brother and it was her dad who came chasing after him.
