She Survived The Highest Fall Ever Recorded By a Human Being

The laws of physics some times don't make sense. Someone can die by falling off a latter or roof, but then you hear of crazy survival stories of a lady who got sucked out of an airplane and survived and wonder how that can happen.

There may be no rhyme or reason to it, because these miraculous, one-in-a-million survival stories leave us baffled at how much luck someone can have.

It's estimated that the human body reaches 99% of its low level terminal velocity after falling 1,880 feet which takes 13-14 seconds. This would result in 117-125 miles per hour at normal atmospheric pressure in a random position, but up to 185 mph in a head down position.

Luke Aikins became the first skydiver to jump from a plane without a parachute or wing-suit, and live to tell the tale. He leaped 25,000 feet using air currents around him to land safely on a high-tech 10,000 square-foot net. But he had a net. This story of a woman's amazing survival really makes us think she has a guardian angel looking over her shoulder.

When she was 22-years-old Vesna Vulovic was a flight attendant on Yugoslav Airlines DC-9 en-route from Stockholm to Belgrade.

The plane was ripped apart up in the air and she fell from the sky over Srbská Kamenice, Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic) on January 26, 1972.
