Frane Selak is a Croatian teacher who has escaped death seven times. Some may call man more fortunate or unfortunate but fortunately he has survived.
Frane Selak’s “game” with death began in January 1962 when he boarded a train on a cold truck, where he crashed. Very few survived, including Selak.
The following year, during his first and only flight on the plane, he escaped the blast that left 19 people dead.
Three years after that, in 1966, he was on a bus that also suffered an accident, slipped off the road and fell into a river, strangling four passengers.
Selak swam ashore with some cuts and bruises.
In 1970 his car caught fire while driving and he managed to escape before the fuel tank was blown up.
Three years later his car burst into flames.
Selak’s hair was completely burnt in the accident but he escaped without further damage. In 1995, he was hit by a bus in Zagreb, but suffered only minor injuries.
In 1996 he escaped a US truck crash in 2003, two days after his 73rd birthday, Selak won $ 1,110,000 in the lottery.
Married five times and bought two houses and a boat with his profits in 2010 he decided to give most of the money left over to relatives and friends.
