In '72, 22 yo Serbian stewardess Vesna Vulovic was working on a Serbian plane when a terrorist's bomb exploded at 33,330 ft, blowing it into several pieces. Vulovic was in the midsection where she stayed for the ENTIRE 33K ft fall to the ground! She was found with a fractured skull, 3 broken vertebrae & 2 broken legs but alive. She spent 27 days in a coma for 27 days. She was semi-paralysed but made a full recovery & remains the world record holder for the highest fall WITHOUT a parachute.
