Check out this story from CNN. This subject has always facinated me. Many years ago my father was supposed to be a passenger in a small private aircraft flight to Denver. For some reason he did not go, and the plane crashed killing two of his good friends. Two things are burned in my memory about that story. 1)It's the first time I saw my dad cry, and 2)the twists of fate that can occur seemingly at random that can save your life.
Some disasters are so catastrophic there are no survivors. Yet in so many others a few people manage to come out against all the odds. Surviving is sometimes so astronomically remote that it staggers the mind to hear about them. It amazes and inspires me, and makes me wonder if I initially survived some horrible event would I have the stuff to make it the rest of the way? I think I would like to check out this guys book. Anyone here survive against the odds?
