  • Sucked out from the airplane and falling 2,987 meters (9,800ft) from the sky, Juliane Koepcke miraculously survived her freefall from her disintegrating plane crash. Spending 11 days in the Amazon rainforest, at 17 years old, she had to remain mentally strong gathering all of her strength and her will to survive.

    A true story, Juliane only had 1 shoe and 1 eye to see out of. Being separated from the entire plane wreckage, she knew she had to find her way out if she wanted to survive. The thick Amazon rainforest made it difficult for rescues to find the plane, let alone her! She tried so desperately to find her mother, but in her fragile state, she had to worry about herself first. Not knowing if she would ever be found, she took a chance and followed a river hoping it would be her shot at finding people. Her gamble paid off when she managed to find a resting post where the next day, people found her and quickly transported her to a hospital.

    Out of 91 passengers, she is the only survivor of the Lansa Flight 508. She not only survived a plane crash but survived it falling nearly 3 1/2 Burj Khalifa's (tallest building in the world) without any life-threatening injuries and survived 11 days on her own in the Amazon rainforest. Showing the will to survive, her story shows us how strong, resilient, and determined someone can be when faced with the most difficult challenges.

    The comments here are nearly all absolutely filthy.
    Good video
    Thanks for reading narrator
    The art is phenomenal
    And this person who survived this is an absolute badass, and I feel so bad for her experience and how the comments completely disregarded all of it.

    Rarely sure you would have died

    I feel like I should mention this, since so many people seemed disturbed by the maggot thing. One of the main reasons she survived was because of the maggots. Maggots eat dead flesh, since they were eating only dead infected skin, they prevented the infection from traveling further into her body. Fun fact: In some countries, doctors actually use maggot therapy for wounds.

    I have to fly to Florida soon from New Jersey soon for a senior trip and back with all my friends and my girlfriend. I'm pretty scared now. But I can't imagine what this girl had to go through. I wouldn't be able to do what she did.
