Croatian is world's luckiest unluckiest man

Frane Selak has cheated death more times in the last 40 years than James Bond and Jack Bauer combined.

Born in 1929, Selak's life had been generally unremarkable up until 1962 when his miraculous escape from a train crash kick-started a lifetime of bizarre accidents that seemed to follow him wherever he went.

In 1963 the engines of a plane he had been traveling on suddenly stopped, sending the aircraft plummeting towards the ground. Everyone on-board the plane died except for Selak, who having been sucked out of a faulty door several thousand feet in the air without a parachute somehow managed to land perfectly on top of a haystack, leaving him with only minor injuries.

His bizarre streak of good/bad luck would continue over the next few decades as he endured being hit by a bus, skidding off the road in another bus and then having his car catch fire twice while he was driving it. In one incident he even swerved off the side of a 300ft cliff and only managed to survive by hanging on to a tree branch.

Having lived through so many disasters, Selak was finally rewarded by a definitively positive stroke of luck when in 2003 he bought a lottery ticket for the first time in 40 years and immediately won the jackpot of $1 million.

Yep, he is definitely movie material, compared to the movies I have been watching which have been rubbish, this story would be interesting.

In fact I rang up and cancelled movies with Foxtel/cable and just kept the documentaries. I told them why in a nice way.
