She Survived The Highest Fall Ever Recorded By a Human Being

- Page 1

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 Srbsk√° Kamenice, Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic) on January 26, 1972.
