Wow, I can't believe the King of Pop, Jackie Chan, and Mark Wahlberg were almost killed by Osama bin Laden. MJ sadly isn't with us anymore, but the rest of the people on this list are very lucky to still be alive today.

Wow, imagine how different the music world would have been.

Chan was due at the World Trade Center last Tuesday to shoot scenes for an upcoming film. However, that filming was canceled at the last minute because of a late script.

3 Mark Wahlberg Mark Robert Michael Wahlberg is an American actor, producer, businessman, former model, rapper, and songwriter.

Wahlberg was supposed to fly on American Airlines Flight 11, which soon crashed into the Twin Towers. Instead, he went to a music festival in Toronto, Canada.

All the great movies he was in would either not exist or have a different actor in his place.

These people are really lucky in a good way. Good to see they made it out alive.

4 Seth MacFarlane Seth Woodbury MacFarlane is an American television producer, filmmaker, actor, and singer, working primarily in animation and comedy, as well as live-action and other genres.

MacFarlane was supposed to be on the same plane that Wahlberg was scheduled to be on but woke up late due to a hangover. He then spoke about it ten years later.

Family Guy would have been way different.

5 Rob Lowe Robert Hepler "Rob" Lowe is an American actor. He garnered fame after appearing in such films as The Outsiders, Oxford Blues, About Last Night..., St.

During his flight from Washington DC to Los Angeles after filming The West Wing, he later discovered he had flown alongside the terrorists. He was called to give evidence against attacker Zacarias Moussaoui.

6 Gwyneth Paltrow Gwyneth Kate Paltrow is an American actress, model, writer, businesswoman, singer, and author. She has received numerous accolades throughout her career, including an Academy Award, an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award.

When Paltrow stopped to stare before moving out of the way, that small delay caused her to miss her train to the World Trade Center. She got off the train when she saw one of the planes crash into one of the towers.

7 Sarah, Duchess of York Sarah, Duchess of York is a British writer, charity patron, public speaker, film producer and television personality.

Ferguson was located on the 101st floor of the North Tower, and she was due to be there that morning.

8 Patti Austin

Austin was supposed to be on United Flight 93 that day, but her mother had a stroke in San Francisco, so the singer had to change her travel plans.

9 Michael Lomonaco

Lomonaco was the head chef of Windows on the World. He escaped the attacks when he first stopped at the lobby of 1 World Trade Center to get his glasses fixed while the restaurant was destroyed.

10 Daniel Belardinelli

Belardinelli was scheduled to fly from Newark to San Francisco on the same plane Austin was supposed to be in. He had planned to go on a fun vacation with his uncle, but a week before 9/11, Belardinelli cancelled his ticket and let his uncle know that he would not be joining. Unfortunately, his uncle was on board and died when the plane was hijacked by terrorists.
