If cats have nine lives, how many does Frane Selak have? He’s already used up seven of his — unintentionally, of course.
Selak’s brushes with death started in 1962 and “ended” in 1996. He’s survived a train derailment, a plane crash, two bus accidents, two car fires and a car crash.
OK, so this story reads straight out of the movie Big Fish. If you haven’t seen the movie, it’s about a guy who tries to learn more about his dying father by reliving the tall tales he told about his life.
Although we can’t confirm it, we’re sorta feeling like this story can’t quite be humanly possible. The only thing we can confirm is that he won over $1,000,000 in 2005, and gave most of it to family and friends, which is pretty sweet. Could good karma be his secret to avoiding disaster?
Only time will tell, we guess.
