The probability of a plane crash is only 0.00001%, but once the risk occurs, the chances of survival are extremely low. On January 26, 1972, a terrible air disaster occurred in Czechoslovakia (now Slovakia and the Czech Republic) killing 27 people on board Jat Airways flight JAT367.
The plane originally departed from Stockholm (Sweden) to Belgrade (Serbia) with stops in Copenhagen (Denmark) and Zagreb (Croatia). But while at an altitude of 10,160m above Czechoslovakia, the plane exploded in the sky. The whole world was shocked to find out that one person on the plane was not dead. It was a 22-year-old flight attendant named Vesna Vulović from Serbia.
Miraculously escaped death despite falling from a height of more than 10km to the ground
On the night of January 26, 1972, Bruno Honke – a remote villager from Czechoslovakia heard an unprecedented explosion. He and his neighbors pulled out to look. It took them a long time to understand what had happened: a plane had crashed in the neighboring village. At the tragic scene, smoke was still rising.
The plane broke into thousands of small pieces in the middle of the forest
Mr. Honke tried to look for signs of survivors to rescue him, although it seemed like a myth. However, he actually saw a woman lying in the rubble.
Seeing that the girl was still breathing, Mr. Honke tried to give first aid to the victim. Because the area where the accident happened is a remote area, it took a few hours for the rescue to arrive. Flight attendant Vesna Vulović – the sole survivor was taken to the hospital in a serious condition. Her ribs, pelvis, and leg bones were all broken, her skull was also cracked, and there was an intracranial hemorrhage.
The only survivor was taken to the emergency room after a few hours of perseverance
Vesna Vulović was treated in the hospital for 10 months in a deep coma. At the same time, the world’s media, medical and scientific circles are all extremely curious as to why the young girl was able to survive falling from such a terrible height. Meanwhile, all 27 other people suffered tragic deaths, the body could not be finished. All were anxiously waiting for Vesna to wake up to be able to answer this unbelievable miracle story.
But the moment she regained consciousness, the flight attendant said she no longer remembers what happened on that fateful day.

Looking for the cause
Under normal conditions, all those who fell from a height of 10,000m like Vesna Vulović had no chance of survival. They did not die from grounding injuries, but first of all died while still in the plane. The reason is that when the altitude drops suddenly, the blood pressure in the human body will increase very sharply, creating a state of “exploding heart”.
So how does the hostess escape all the laws of common sense? Because the victim herself has no memory, scientists have been frantically searching for a solution for many years.

First of all, based on the evidence left at the scene and speculation from the wound on Vesna’s body, experts believe that this girl was not thrown out of the plane in the moment it exploded. She was stuck in a shopping cart or Vesna quickly got in here because she thought it would help reduce the impact if she fell.
This stroller is clamped to a part of the fuselage, so when thrown out, the flight attendant was “wrapped” quite carefully. After that, she continued to be knocked on the door by the god of luck because she fell down a very large tree on the mountain. Vesna still fell from the tree to the ground but the falling speed was not high and even fell to the snow. Vesna was also in the rear of the plane, which is considered the safest.
However, that alone is not enough because no one can explain why Vesna did not die while on the plane. By some miracle, her body still withstands a huge increase in blood pressure and doesn’t suffer a catastrophic “heart attack” like a normal person.
End of life confession
After recovering her health, contrary to everyone’s thoughts, Vesna Vulović was not haunted by the past but still decided to continue her job as a flight attendant. She avoids the media, does not cooperate with scientists who want to investigate the case and just wants to live a peaceful life.
She continues to work as a flight attendant despite the terrible accident
In 2016, the “miracle survivor” died in her private apartment in Belgrade, aged 66. It was not until her middle years that Vesna revealed a secret story of hers and this is likely the key to explaining the spectacular fall of the past.
Right from birth, Vesna Vulović had a congenital heart disease and had a lower blood pressure than normal people. With such severe low blood pressure, Vesna Vulović should never have been accepted to the job of regularly flying in the sky.
On the day of the interview for Jat Airways, she cheated by drinking a lot of black coffee to raise her blood pressure and pass a health test. No one expected that this disease was the secret to keeping Vesna from having a “heart attack” when falling from a height of more than 10,000m.
Vesna Vulović admits her secret when she’s old
Although people are always considered too lucky, the hostess herself said she did not feel lucky and the accident also ruined her life. Initially, Vesna was not a flight attendant who had to serve on that fateful flight. A flight attendant had a sudden problem so she had to change her position.
“If I were lucky, I never would have gotten on that flight in the first place.”Vesna said.
