Video description
Sucked out from the airplane and falling 2,987 meters (9,800ft) from the sky, Juliane Koepcke miraculously survived her freefall from her disintegrating plane crash. Spending 11 days in the Amazon rainforest, at 17 years old, she had to remain mentally strong gathering all of her strength and her will to survive.

A true story, Juliane only had 1 shoe and 1 eye to see out of. Being separated from the entire plane wreckage, she knew she had to find her way out if she wanted to survive. The thick Amazon rainforest made it difficult for rescues to find the plane, let alone her! She tried so desperately to find her mother, but in her fragile state, she had to worry about herself first. Not knowing if she would ever be found, she took a chance and followed a river hoping it would be her shot at finding people. Her gamble paid off when she managed to find a resting post where the next day, people found her and quickly transported her to a hospital.

Out of 91 passengers, she is the only survivor of the Lansa Flight 508. She not only survived a plane crash but survived it falling nearly 3 1/2 Burj Khalifa's (tallest building in the world) without any life-threatening injuries and survived 11 days on her own in the Amazon rainforest. Showing the will to survive, her story shows us how strong, resilient, and determined someone can be when faced with the most difficult challenges.
I Escaped from My Country

It took 4 months for her to escape her country. She had to hide her identity and work on a farm in a country where she didn't speak the language so she could save up and get to a safer place. She had to leave her parents behind unsure if she'd ever see them again. In the end, she fought and survived her journey successfully bringing back one of her parents and now waiting to see her mom again. Thank you for your support and for subscribing to our channel.

A Doctor's Error Almost Killed Me

Type 1 diabetes affects millions of people all over the world; most being children. Type 1 diabetes is when our blood sugar levels are too high from low levels of insulin. In short, insulin helps the cells in your body absorb the glucose (sugar). Without it, your blood will be overrun with high blood sugar levels leading to heart, eyes, kidneys, nerve, and gum damage because your blood is too acidic. This is known as Diabetic Ketoacidosis or DKA and if left untreated, it could be life-threatening. Your body begins destroying itself from the inside out. This is what happened...

Why You Shouldn’t Fear Death

Are you living life or just surviving? Both words are very similar to one another but have very different meanings. If you are surviving, that means you have all the basic necessities of life; food, water, shelter, security. If you are living, it means you are above surviving. You are taking the life you have been given to it's fullest, enjoying every moment you have been so lucky to be a part of. In this story, Alex is left contemplating life and death after a car accident that left him in a coma. He begins to feel confusion, anger, and...

I Lost My Baby Before I Even Met Her

The pain was unimaginable but as a way to get some closure, the hospital staff allowed her to hold the child briefly and dressed her to put her to rest in peace. After she received the urn, she spiraled into...

Miraculous: A Giant Plane's Tense Crash Landing

I became Anorexic for Instagram

"You look great! Have you lost weight?" - I was always a little bigger than my friends, but hearing that comment drove me to go beyond the extremes of losing weight; I became anorexic. These days, being skinny or "fit" is the new pretty. Even on Instagram, those that are skinny or in workout clothes get the most likes because that's what is deemed "beautiful". We constantly compare ourselves to these "beautiful" individuals making it our goal to get to where they are. Everything from dieting, becoming gym junkies, skipping meals, or even plastic surgery. As we continue our quest,...

I Saved a Stranger and Her Daughter

When we see others in trouble, society tells us that we should leave it alone and mind our own business. People think that it's what everyone wants when in truth, if people need help, they're mostly just too afraid to ask for it. So if the people who can help all mind their own business and the people who need help are too afraid to ask for it, how are we supposed to help each other? How are we supposed to grow as a society? As the story submitter says, "we should ALL do what we can to help others...
