In the case of pure Vipassana, it must be definitely mentioned that such unpleasant events will never occur as it is impossible for a Vipassana Yogi because the practice itself is Maha Kusala Nana Sampayutta Citta under the guidance of Samma Ditthi and Samma-Sankappa.
Vipassana therefore means the direct realisation of the three characteristics of mentality and physicality.

If the observation and contemplation is done promptly and properly the links in the chain of Paticcasamuppada will be broken asunder in the beginning, in the middle and in the end.
