We’ve all dealt with some kind of coincidences in our lives. Maybe you’ve thought of a friend you haven’t seen for years and suddenly he calls you out of the blue. Or maybe you’ve said something at the same time with another person. Our lives are filled with these small coincidences and we usually don’t pay much attention to them beyond the usual ‘oh, wow’. But then there are bigger coincidences that sometimes baffle even scientists. These unexplainable things happen all around us and history is filled with such examples. Did you know that the Titanic tragedy was predicted years before the ship was even built?
1. The deaths of Catherine Eddowes and Mary Kelly
On a dark September night back in 1888, Catherine Eddowes was found drunk in the streets of London. She was arrested and then released some time later. The woman didn’t want to reveal her real name, so she used ‘Mary Kelly’ instead. The very same night Jack the Ripper murdered Catherine Eddowes and then moved on to the next victim named…Mary Kelly!
2. The ultimate survivor
It’s hard to call this man lucky because he has witnessed two horrifying acts of violence, but he did survive through both of them! Last year Matthew played dead after being shot during the terrorist attack on the Bataclan theater in Paris, but what’s more unbelievable is that he has also witnessed and survived through the 9/11 attack that happened 14 years earlier. He was passing by one of the twin towers when the building was hit by a plane.
