• Came close once when I was a child. I was swimming near the edge of a pool when suddenly everyone started yelling at me. There were too many voices and I couldn't make out what they were yelling. They seamed to be pointing at me. Someone then ran up and pulled a small baby out of the water RIGHT NEXT TO ME. The child had fallen in beside me but I didn't even know it. Missed my big chance.
  • Several times. Having been taught how to render first-aid, when I was young, has paid off over the years that followed.

      Did you feel responsible for them after that? Did they feel an obligation to repay you?
    • Ice man
      I didn't really feel responsible for them, but did check up on them later. I never wanted anything in return and assured them that their thanks was enough for me. One guy's wife insisted on baking cookies for me ... until I moved away.

  • If saving a persons career counts then yes. Guy called me and said " I will lose my job if you cannot help me " so I helped him. Few weeks later he offered me a job I did not qualify for , but still felt about him still being employed. If this does not qualify as saving a persons life then no
