Whether or not you believe in guardian angels, you have to admit that there are certain moments where their existence seems totally plausible -- like the time this man was nearly impaled by a falling branch.
On August 31, he narrowly avoided serious injury or even death after stepping outside to take his dog for a walk in Memphis, Tennessee. He'd brought an umbrella because of the heavy storm, and shortly after opening it, he was startled by a noise and began to duck for cover.
His security camera recorded him slipping in the mud and falling to the ground, where less than a second later, a tree branch fell and missed him by only a few inches.
