It Actually Happened- ‘Final Destination’ Log Scene Happened IRL
We all know what scene this is. Even if you've never seen a single Final Destination film (there's five in total) you KNOW which scene is the most traumatizing when driving. The log scene! If you've never seen it or heard of it, the famous scene comes from Final Destination 2. It's the opening scene where the main character Kimberly has a premonition of what happens and avoids the terrible accident. The movie then follows the group of survivors who cannot escape the grips of death. You can check out the scene below, but, be advised, it's a bit gory:
Yeah, told you.To this day if I see a trailer holding logs or pipes, I get out of that lane. I'm sure many do the same. So it came as a shocker to me that a Georgia driver actually made it out alive when he rear ended a log truck. The logs impaled the car from the front windshield to the back window!
Whitfield County Fire Chief Edward O'Brien reported on the department's Facebook page that the driver walked away with only minor injuries! O'Brien tells CNN that because the driver was not in the upright position (apparently he was leaning down to get something he dropped when he rear-ended the truck) he ended up in a gap between the logs! O'Brien says that firefighters had to cut through 30 or 40 logs before they could even start to cut open the car to rescue the man in the car!
The guy walked away with MINOR INJURIES! If I were that guy I'd be on edge afterwards ALL. THE. TIME! If Final Destination has taught us anything it's that "you can't cheat death." But in all honesty, that dude was lucky and I hope he lives a long blessed life.
