Vacation is a time for relaxation, adventure, and creating memories that last a lifetime. But unfortunately, some celebrities’ vacations took a terrifying turn when they came close to losing their lives. From natural disasters to near-fatal accidents, these twelve celebrities faced life-threatening situations while on holiday.

Chris Hemsworth’s vacation to the Himalayas with his wife took a dangerous turn. At high altitudes, he experienced the effects of thin air, becoming irrational, talking to dogs, and acting like a child.
Finally, his wife noticed he wasn’t getting enough oxygen and alerted the guides, who acted quickly to adjust his oxygen levels and bring him down the mountain. It was later revealed that another day at that altitude could have resulted in oxygen deprivation and death.
