Prior to his inauguration, FDR was almost killed by an assassin. (At that time, inaugurations took place in March, not January.) Had he been killed, presumably vice president-elect John Nance Garner would have assumed the presidency at the bottom of the Great Depression. As it was, the shot went wild and killed the mayor of Chicago who was with Roosevelt.
