At least once in our lives we all happen to witness or experience certain events that come as a great shock or surprise to us.

Some say it to be God’s anonymous presence. The skeptics look for proof and built up theories. But nothing can be crazier if you happen to capture those strange events with your camera. Here are 12 events of chance, coincidence and perfect timing that will blow your mind.
1 Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 & The One Who Cheated Death
On July 17th, 2014, the MH17/MAS17 was a passenger flight that flew from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. While flying over eastern Ukraine, it crashed, killing 15 crew members and 283 passengers on board. It was labeled as the ‘eighth deadliest aviation disaster’. C.J Chivers, a journalist from the New York Times, pointed out a creepy coincidence. He said,” Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777, Registered 9M-MRD, made 1st flight on 7-17-97. It met its end 17 years later, to the day-aviation official.” This statement highlighted the fact that Flight MH17 had also been flying for 17 years until it crashed. The repeated numerals 7s and 17s associated with the flights is itself very creepy. Additionally, the Dutch cyclist, Maarten De Jonge had a narrow escape from death. Call it his fate or coincidence, he was to board the passenger flight MH370. It was the first Malaysian flight that disappeared on 8th March 2014. He was also to board MH17, but then he had changed his plans for a cheaper cost, to a different flight. So, you can say he was extremely lucky to have cheated death twice.
