This happened to me in Call of Duty 2. I had been slogging through the masochistic "Veteran" difficulty setting for achievement points, when the checkpoint system autosaved my progress a split second before a mortar round zeroed me.
Thinking back, this has happened to me numerous times through various games over the decades, whether via glitch or poor game design. I love save points (particularly when they override previous ones) that bookmark your progress in a fail state.
