7 Celebrities Who Have Cheated Death

Seth MacFarlane | A Ticket on Flight 11
Seth MacFarlane is alive today thanks to booze and a typo. Scheduled to fly on American Airlines Flight 11 from Boston to New York on September 11, 2001, the Family Guy creator overslept after a night of partying. His travel coordinator also gave him an incorrect flight time, and that, paired with running late from boozing, caused him to miss the flight by a few minutes. Shortly after takeoff, the plane would be hijacked and crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.
