Is a natural disaster involved? Does Jenna have a relevant disease? Did she escape a bad situation by doing the dangerous thing?

Are the other people friends? family? acquaintances? complete strangers?

Is covid relevant? Social distancing? Is the disease usually considered lethal? Was the disease itself the danger? Was she at risk of making the symptoms worse? Foregoing some necessary treatment?

Does the disease cause a typically non-dangerous thing to become dangerous? If so, is that thing a tangible object? An action (such as heavy exercise)? An injury?

Does the typically dangerous action involve eating something? Drinking? Inhaling? Otherwise bringing something into one's body? Fast movement? Interacting with people? Animals? Handling something poisonous? inflammable? explosive? radioactive?

Is the harmful result of the action usually an accident? A crime? Sickness? Poisoning? Starvation?

Is the harm from the action usually done suddenly (e.g. jumping down a cliff and breaking bones)? Or is it a slow process (like the ill effects of smoking)?

Does Jenna perform the action in order to save herself from danger? In order to harm herself?

Is Jenna's life saved from death by sickness? Starvation? Poisoning?

Is Jenna advised to do the dangerous thing? Ordered?

Could Jenna's life have been saved by any other action than what she actually did?

Car/bike accident relevant? Was she driving? Did she crash against other vehicles? Voluntarily? Did she talk to the phone while driving? Did she avoid to signal that she was turning left/right? Was she a pedestrian? Pedestrian crossing relevant? Walking on sidewalk? Was she riding a bike? Driving without license relevant?

Did she have an accident? If so did she have any relevant consequence? Broken arm? Broken leg? Broken bones? head trauma? Other?

Was she aware of being sick? Did she have to pay for being cured? Relevant? Insurance relevant? Could her sickness be confused as a cause of the accident? Sickness = something that could be cured with an operation? With medicines? something affecting physical appearance? Tumor?

Does she go to a hospital or doctor for a checkup to make sure there are no inuries so far unnoticed? And, by chance, they find a potentially dangerous tumor at a stage where it is easily treatable?

Does she go to a hospital or doctor for a checkup to make sure there are no inuries so far unnoticed? Not quite, but you got the idea And, by chance, they find a potentially dangerous tumor at a stage where it is easily treatable? YES

********SPOILER********

Jenna gets into a car accident because she's texting her friend back while driving. She is taken to the hospital where a CT scan shows a tumor. Luckily, it's still at a stage where it can be treated easily.
