Have you ever wondered when you’ll die? Death is something that comes to all of us and it’s natural to be curious about it. But of course, nobody can know exactly when they’re going to die. Or can they?
As it turns out, more than a few people have in fact successfully predicted exactly when they’re going to die, and in some cases, right down to the exact day and cause. Today, we’re going to be looking at who these lucky people were so that you can decide. Did they have the gift of foresight or did their predictions manifest their own death?
Here are 10 People Who Eerily Predicted Their Own Deaths.
2. William Thomas Stead
Known as the father of the modern tabloid, writer William Thomas Stead was an English newspaper editor who claimed that he got a lot of his information from spirits and ghosts from the afterlife. Many people brushed this off as sensational. However, one article written in 1892 discussed not how a new famous ship may sink, but how it will sink. That year, he published From the Old World to the New, a story about a ship crashing into an iceberg, leaving hundreds of passengers dead and survivors rescued by a captain named Edward Smith.
However, just two days later, on April 14th, that ship collided with an iceberg, rendering his prediction accurate and causing his own death as he drowned. The ship he boarded? The RMS Titanic.
