You must have seen photographs of a lot of tragedies and all those photos are indeed very depressing because they show pain and sadness. Such pictures are all over the internet, and whenever we see them, our heart breaks thinking about how things must have been alright a while ago and within a matter of a few seconds, some lives completely changed. It’s all about moments, life can change within a few moments, and everything that seemed to be a perfect may not remain the same. We believe that the pictures of a few moments before the tragedy are more impactful than the clicks of the tragedy itself because that explains a lot of life. To view some of such photos, keep reading!
The photograph that you see below doesn’t show any signs of pain or tragedy; it just shows John Lennon who is signing autographs for a group of his fans in the New York City. In fact, it must have rather been a proud moment for him, so you must be wondering that why have we even added this particular picture to the list. In that case, you need to know that this photograph was taken just 10 minutes before John was brutally shot by the man at the back who is Mark David Chapman.
We have been hearing people say that you never know what life has in store for you and how is it going to change within a next few seconds and the picture that you can see below is a perfect example. Tragedies are not necessarily murders or something that others to do to you; tragedies may be something that you do to yourself as in the case of Robin Williams. The comedy legend was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, and so he decided to end hi life by hanging himself. Williams took this picture with a young employee at a Dairy Queen just days before he died!
While visiting a zoo in New Delhi, India, one man needed to see the uncommon white tiger close up and was jumping on the cage side (restricted area) to get a clear view. He was over and over warned by the staff over there to get down as both the fall and the tiger could be conceivably lamentable. Determined, the man held his situation until losing balance and falling into the animal cage.
In a second the white tiger slinked up to the man and kept him cornered for right around 15 minutes as different guests and zookeepers endeavored to occupy the creature. Sadly, in the end, chose to jump and hauled the man, by the neck, back to its nook before executing him.
For some people, skiing is their passion, and they like to pursue it. They know about all the risks attached to it, but they also know that adventure is in their blood. The man in the photo is Robert Overacker, and he was jet skiing at Niagra Falls when his parachute failed just an hour after the shot was taken. The unfortunate guy was not performing the stunt for fame, he was rather raising awareness for the homeless, but he never knew that this is going to be the last time that he sees the daylight.
