What's the difference betwee the following two sentences?

1- "Do not try to do this stunt. Anything happen could . You may/might/could get injured or die."

2- "Do not try to do this stunt. Anything can happen. You can get injured or die."

Hi, Subhajit,

I assume you meant to write "Anything could happen" rather than "Anything happen could" (ungrammatical) in (1). In English, auxiliary verbs come before the main verb. Your placement of "can" is grammatical in (2).

The combination you should use here is "Anything could happen. You might/could get injured or (even) die." You can think of this after the analogy of a Type 2 conditional: "If you did this, that could/might happen."
