* And so forth. Real life examples aren't going to detail an apocalyptic horror, or anything, but will definitely qualify in the "desperation and insanity grow from entry to entry" sense. And even in cases where the witness didn't die, records of traumatic events still capture moments in history with terrifying clarity: the Film/ZapruderFilm of UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy [[WhoShotJFK being shot]], the morning of 9/11/2001...

* This is sort of the whole reason they have black boxes on airplanes. The Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) records everything said in the cockpit and over the radio on an aircraft, and the device is made of highly durable material that's unlikely to be destroyed in a crash. (And as for the old {{Stock Shtick|s}} about "why don't they just make the whole plane out of that material?"...well, such a plane would be too heavy to fly, and it wouldn't protect the passengers inside from the impact anyway.)

* A heroic example from September 11 is Todd Beamer, who used an on-plane telephone to recount what had happened on United Flight 93 and a plan to take back control of the plane: "[[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Are you guys ready?]] [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Let's roll."]]

* Played with in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' spinoff ''Literature/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'', in the entry on Lethifolds. Because Lethifolds attack the sleeping and leave nothing behind, it's near impossible to get an accurate tally of people who have been killed by them. It is significantly easier to get a tally of people who have tried to fake their death by Lethifold, as in the case of one man who supposedly left a note as he was being devoured "Oh no, a Lethifold's got me, I'm suffocating!", but was later found to be living with a mistress a few miles away.
