How Juliane Koepcke Survived A Plane Crash And 11 Days Alone In The Amazon

In December 1971, 17-year-old Juliane Koepcke and her mother were traveling to see her father on LANSA Flight 508 when the plane was felled by lightning and broke apart.

Considered the worst lightning strike in history, the crash ultimately led to the loss of every passenger on board - except Koepcke.

The teenager plunged two miles through the air to the floor of a Peruvian jungle, still strapped to her seat.

Despite this harrowing experience, she lived to tell the tale.

Koepcke, who miraculously suffered only minimal harm, ventured through the forest for 11 days seeking help.
