Photos Taken Moments Before Disaster Struck
Rebecca Rodriguez - August 5, 2018
There is a place where the sidewalk ends And before the street begins, And there the grass grows soft and white, And there the sun burns crimson bright, And there the moon-bird rests from his flight To cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black And the dark street winds and bends. Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow, And watch where the chalk-white arrows go To the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slow, And we'll go where the chalk-white arrows go, For the children, they mark, and the children, they know The place where the sidewalk ends.

- Shel Silverstein

Although we’ve still got some time until Halloween,  creepiness still exists throughout the entire year, and we didn’t want to make you wait so long. Brace yourselves (and make sure you’ve got someone to cuddle up to) before you dig into these incredibly strange and creepy photos of innocent people right before they died in the most shocking and horrific ways imaginable.

A Deadly Selfie



Xenia Ignatyeva, a 17-year-old Russian girl, took a selfie from a bridge that was an entire 28-feet off the ground in order to show off to her friends. She lost her balance and fell on a cable, which electrocuted her to death.

A Striking Moment
