Five survivors of spectacular falls:
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.
