Photographs are worth a thousand words, and there’s a lot they can tell about a particular moment of our past. Often, we can be caught up in the moment without realizing what’s ahead in the future. Sadly, we can be faced with a wide range of misfortunes in the moments after the picture without any warning. Below, we put together pictures which offer insight into the eerie moments just before tragedy struck.
Karl Wallenda was a circus legend and well-known daredevil. He did most of his routines without any safety equipment. Pictured above, he is 121 feet above the ground between two hotels in Puerto Rico. Sadly, this was his last walk, as he fell to his death shortly after this picture was taken. One thing that might shock you is the fact that he was 73 years old when he attempted this walk.
