The moment an accident happens is the moment everyone turns their heads to see what happened. But sometimes, you manage to catch a glimpse of that split second right before. The fleeting moment right before the ball that was just thrown hits someone in the face, or before the glass hits the ground and shatters, spilling the drink all over the floor.
Although these moments are usually so brief you’ll miss them if you blink, some people managed to capture them on camera, either thanks to exceptional quickness or by chance. Some of these pictures will make you laugh out loud while others will make you want to warn the subjects through the screen. Take a look at these funny and unique images, that could not have better timing.
