At this phase, it’s pretty safe to assume that people’s cameras are always rolling.
While this new phenomenon has created a lot of garbage fluff, people occasionally capture interesting material. Some of that footage is also horrifying.
Take these five scary moments, for example. With their cameras rolling, these unfortunate individuals captured some of the most horrific footage that the Internet has to offer. Check out the captions below each photo to learn more, and then watch each nightmare unfold in the video below.
1. The Death of Sara Jones
Sara Jones was running as a camerawoman for the movie Midnight Rider in 2014. During the first day of shooting, they filmed on a train bridge in Georgia that they did not have the proper permits to be using. While setting up for the shooting, a CSX freight train was spotted in the distance as it barreled toward the crew.
As they struggled to remove their equipment from the ways, the train struck a prop that then smashed into Jones. She was thrown into the train’s route and killed instantly.
2. The Snowboarding Accident
More skiing and snowboarding accidents happen in the U.S. every year than people would like to admit. Whether by way of negligence or poor weather conditions, the result is often the same: severe bodily harm.
While there are many videos to choose from, this one features a hapless snowboarder with a helmet camera and a poor sense of direction. Amazingly enough, he managed to walk away with a few broken bones.
3. The Zorbing Incident
Zorbing is a sport that involves one or two people getting inside an inflatable ball and rolling down a mound. It seems like the most exciting athletic ever, but it’s not without its risks. Take, for example, what happened to the two men in this situation. As you can see in the still above, a strong gust of gale blew them off track.
4. Close Encounter with a Black Bear
Bears might appear cute and cuddly, but that all changes in a hurry if you ever find yourself in front of one. This is something that two Canadian athletes learned when they ventured a little too far into the wilderness for a workout. They escaped in the end, but things got dicey for a second.
5. Narrowly Avoiding a Tornado
No natural disasters are more frightening than tornadoes. They’re totally destructive, and we’re powerless against them. This video that was shot by a man in the Midwest shows the insane power of one as it slowly moves across the land…before determining right over his home. Amazingly enough, he managed to keep the camera rolling the entire time. Good luck sleeping after that.
If you think you can belly it, check out this video compilation and watch all of the terror unfold.

Well, that’s the stuff of nightmares. I’ve insured a few videos like this before, but the events in this one are especially unsettling.
