15 Celebs Who Had Terrible Near Death Experiences

15. Jason Statham

Jason Statham is a bad-ass and there’s no denying it, especially after what happened while he was filming The Expendables 3. He was test-driving a three-ton truck when the brakes failed, sending the truck straight off of a cliff and into the Black Sea, where it went down 60 feet. Anyone else probably wouldn’t have been so lucky, but this is Jason Statham that we’re talking about here. Like a scene straight out of a movie, the actor managed to jump out of the truck as it flew off the cliff (luckily the truck doors had been removed prior to his test-drive). His co-star, Sylvester Stallone, said, “If anyone else had been in that truck we would have been dead because we were all wearing heavy boots and gun belts,” [He] would have drowned. But because Jason is an Olympic-quality diver he got out of it.” And by “Olympic-quality,” Stallone is referring to the fact that Statham was part of Britain’s National Diving Squad for a dozen years and competed for England at the 1990 Commonwealth Games.
