Matt-Suter-croppedFarthest distance thrown by a tornado and survived is more than 1,300 feet (398.37 meters). On March 12, 2006, tornado may have carried Matt Suter, a 19-year-old high school senior, farther than any other human being who lived to tell about it. Suter was at his grandmother’s mobile home that night with grandma and a disabled uncle. He awoke in a field, alive and unharmed except for a small scalp wound. Miraculously, his grandmother and uncle also survived the disintegration of their mobile home after being pinned to the ground by heavy furniture.

Keith-Sapsford-smallJohn Gilpin, an amateur photographer, was testing his new camera lens at the airport and caught a 14 year old boy falling from the wheel well of Japan Air Lines DC-8. This is a case of a stowaway trying to fly around the world for free for a vacation. There were over 96 documented incidents since 1946 and only 24% have survived. Most die immediately after the landing gear goes up and crushes them or freeze to death or die of no oxygen. A kid recently survived somehow but was unconscious the entire time. They found him wandering the tarmac after the plane landed.
