Tell Me How You Survived A Life-Or-Death Situation

Life-or-death situations keep us on the edge of our seats on TV and in movies, but the ones that happen in real life are even scarier. These events, though traumatic, can inspire others, so I'm asking the BuzzFeed Community to share their own stories of survival.

For anyone who has found themselves in the middle of a life-or-death situation, I want to hear how you handled it. Maybe you were able to talk your way out of danger while being confronted by an attacker.

Perhaps you got creative and were able to camouflage yourself and hide in plain sight.

Or maybe you chose the fight response and did everything physically possible to get yourself to safety.
