In 1971, 17-year-old Juliane Koepcke was sucked out of an airplane after it was struck by a bolt of lightning. She fell two miles to the ground strapped to her seat and survived. She spent the next 11 days alone in the Amazon jungle before being rescued by a logging team.

@SierraKiloBravo That's not her in the photo, that's the actress who played her in the movie.


@SierraKiloBravo Well, I think that's the same actress (Susan Penhaligon) on both photographs.
