15 Strangers That Randomly Met Their Doppelgangers

What would it be like to meet a non-biologically related look-alike in real life? Would you consider yourself a psychic or the incident a coincidence? Believe it or not, it can be either. Finding their doppelgangers was surely a surprising as well as a shocking moment for these people. Here is a collection of people who accidentally met their doppelganger and didn’t miss the chance for a fun picture.  

Doppelganger” is a generic term used at present for the look-alikes, a person that you can stumble across in everyday life. Encountering your look-alike was regarded as an ill-omen throughout history, but now, it has become a moment of pride.

doppelganger phenomenon can be explained as Heautoscopy, the hallucination of seeing one’s own body at a distance which is a symptom of schizophrenia and epilepsy, or actually meeting an alive twin stranger.

The chances of the coincidence being harmless are of little possibility but not null. In one such unfortunate case, a person had to be imprisoned for 17 years until his doppelganger who shared a striking resemblance and even hazardously the same first name was found. As a result of a wrongful conviction based on eyewitness testimony, he was put behind bars and though he had persistently denied the charges, he wasn’t released until after his flawless doppelganger showed up.
