Five survivors of spectacular falls:

Juliane Koepcke (revisiting the crash site, 2000)
Juliane Koepcke, 17, was flying over the Peruvian rainforest with her mother on Christmas Eve, 1971, when her plane was hit by lightning. She survived a two-mile (3.2km) fall and found herself alone in the jungle with a broken collarbone and deep cuts on her legs. All the other 91 passengers on the flight had been killed. She had a single bag of sweets as food. She was wearing a sleeveless mini-dress as protection from the jungle. After 10 days she came across some lumberjacks, who took her to safety.

The link at top sets out Juliane & 4 other people’s miraculous survival after falling from the sky.
