Unbelievable lottery winners stories: Frane Selak
Having enough luck to escape deadly accidents including train derail, plane, and bus, crashes in addition to several car accidents, the lucky devil claims a million dollar lottery prize
This is a story about the planet's unluckiest person deceiving death several times and finally receiving a worthy remuneration for his misfortune. Frane Selak was born in 1929 in Croatia and used to work a teacher of music who became globally known for his back luck or as other may say good luck. Selak escaped a number of fatal and disastrous accidents:
- Firsts yet back in January 1962 Frane Selak was traveling from Sarajevo to Dubrovnik by train. The fatal journey finished when the train suddenly derailed and fell into the cold mountain river leaving 17 passengers killed but for the lucky Frane who somehow reacted to jump out of the car and eventually suffered just a broken arm and several minor injuries.
- The next year he was flying from Zagreb to Rijeka when all out of sudden the plain door unsealed and was blown away. Sitting near the door Frane Selak was sucked out along. Supernaturally enough but he landed into the haystack and remained alive while the other 19 passenger remaining in the plane died.
- Later in 1966, Frane Selak was traveling by bus that got into the accident falling into the river (the story repeats itself). Frane again miraculously escaped death while the 4 other passengers were killed in that crash.
- Then in 1970 Frane Selak escape the car he was driving before it was ablaze due to the fuel pump system fault.
- Three years later the story repeated again when Frane's another car caught fire. The flame was forced through the air ducts burning out his hair but he survived again.
- In 1995 there was another bus crash he managed to survive.
- The chain of misfortunes finally ended with his last car accident in 1996 when Frane drove off the high cliff escaping the approaching truck. He jumped out the car while it was in the air and landed in trees observing his car flying another 300 feet down.
But eventually, in 2003 the Man Upstairs seemed to review Frane's case. Luck smiled upon Frane, as the Croatian lottery delivered him $1mln jackpot! "I am sure God watched me all those years harnessing the Death" Frane commented later. Frane Selak said he was known both as the "the world's unluckiest and luckiest person," and he liked the second more.
