When accidents occur and people are faced with perilous situations the world around them seems to slow down a bit, as the adrenaline kicks in to give them the strength to escape the situation with their life.
This slow motion effect is eerie when you're in the thick of it, but it also helps your mind keep a mental snapshot of the scene that you'll never forget.
However, it would be nice to see how the whole horrible scene played out without having to be in the middle of the mess, a photo taken from a bystander's perspective like these awesome illustrations by Walter Molino.
Walter could infuse any situation with suspense and tooth-grinding tension, and the beautiful disasters he created for the Italian newspaper La Domenica del Corriere are action-packed eye candy.
After looking through Walter's portfolio of incredible disaster art it's easy to see how iconic fantasy artist Frank Frazetta was inspired by Walter's staging, stark realism and attention to detail.
