I probably should have named this surviving by trains, planes, automobiles and a winning ticket!
Frane Selak born in 1929, a Croatian Music Teacher who has many near death experiences to speak of throughout his life.
In January 1962 as he was a passenger on a train from Sarajevo to Dubrovnik. The train derailed plummeting into the icy choppy water of the river, killing seventeen passengers and injuring many. Selak only suffered a broken arm and minor scrapes and bruises.
One year later while once again traveling this time by airplane, the door blew away from the cockpit and pulled Selak out of the plane. Selak only suffered minor injuries while 19 others were killed.
Three years later he was on another trip that he traveled by bus and the bus crashed into the river and was submerged. Four others were killed but once again Selak managed to get out unharmed.
In 1970 as he was pumping gas into his car the fuel pump caught on fire sending his car into flames. Yes he managed to escape again.
In 1973 traveling by car his car caught fire and he escaped again.
In 1995 as he was walking he was hit by a bus! His injuries were minor.
In 1996 as he was driving an oncoming truck came into his lane and to avoid the truck he swerved and went off a cliff. He fell out of the car and landed in a tree as his car exploded below him.
In 2003 he purchased a lottery ticket for the Croatian Lottery and won $1,000,000. I honestly think with all those near death experiences he earned this winning ticket!
Some might call him unlucky but I consider him to be one of the luckiest people I have ever heard of in my life! I have never heard of someone experiencing so many near death experiences ever.
So when you think your luck is at its lowest take a moment to think of Selak and know that your chance still might be there.
