The World's (Un)Luckiest Man

73-year old Frane Selak of Croatia has a 40-year string of near-misses that will curl your toes. He has survived train crashes, bus wrecks, car accidents, bizarre auto misfunctions, pedestrian injuries, and was even once sucked out of a plane! He survived four disasterous marriages, too.
By this time he was starting to get an international reputation for his amazing knack for survival. "You could look at it two ways," Selak said. "I am either the world’s unluckiest man or the luckiest. I prefer to believe the latter."

Lucky or unlucky? You’ll have to read about the amazing twist of fate Selak experienced in 2003, today at Neatorama.
