Only survivor from LANSA flight 508

A high school student named Juliane Koepcke  was sucked out of an airplane after it was struck by lightning. She fell 3.2 kilometers to the ground still strapped to her chair and lived with only a broken collar bone and an eye injury. Only to endure a 9 day walk to the nearest civilzation. She was the sole survivor of 93 (wiki says 91? not sure about the right number here) passengers and crew in the December 24, 1971, crash of LANSA Flight 508 in the Peruvian rainforest. Koepcke's survival was featured in a television documentary film called Wings of Hope in 2000.
