Most people experience a brush with death at some point in their life. Freak occurences, medical emergencies, illness or “almost”-accidents serve to remind us of the fragility of human life. This principle also applies to celebrities. Here are 15 celebrities whose lives were changed by a near-death experience.
In 2002 Kanye West suffered a near fatal car accident while leaving the studio, running head-on into traffic and into another vehicle. The rapper would get his jaw wired shut for facial reconstructive surgery. During his recovery he recorded “Through The Wire” with his jaw still surgically shut. The single would go on to become a major success, garnering a Grammy nomination.
