    (#12) Tim Stilwell Fell From The Fifteenth Floor Of A Hotel

    After finding out that he was locked out of his own apartment in June 2013, Tim Stilwell decided the best course of action was to try to hang and drop onto his neighbor's balcony. Things didn't exactly go as planned, and the 20-year-old slipped and fell from the fifteenth floor of the building and landed on the roof of a building at ground level. According to medical experts who attended the scene, he was incredibly lucky to have survived the fall.

    And some suggested that the roof of the building may have broken his fall, preventing life-threatening injuries. He came away with broken bones and internal bruising but was expected to make a full recovery.

    (#9) Teen Survived Suicide Leap From Golden Gate Bridge

    The Golden Gate Bridge has become a hugely popular location for those attempting to commit suicide. The 200+ ft fall kills 98% of all of those who jump on impact, and the icy cold waters below make it even harder to survive. But survival is possible. This is exactly what happened to a 16-year-old girl who jumped from the bridge in April 2011.

    Precisely how she survived is not known, but research suggests that the younger and fitter a person is the more likely they are to manage to live through the ordeal.

    (#8) Steve Fossett’s Hot Air Balloon Was Destroyed By A Storm As He Crashed To Earth

    Steve Fossett was an adventurer who made several attempts to travel around the world in a hot air balloon. In one such attempt in August 1998, he suffered a catastrophic accident as his balloon crashed into a storm front. Hail tore apart the structure and sent his small capsule tumbling towards Earth. After falling almost 30,000 ft, Fossett woke up to discover he had not only survived the ordeal but was also completely unharmed.

    The capsule had landed in water and protected him from injury, though, he did have to spend 10 hours at sea before he was rescued.

    (#2) Bear Grylls Almost Died In An SAS Training Mission

    Before he became a popular television personality and adventurer, Bear Grylls spent a short amount of time in the armed forces. During this military service, he was involved with the SAS Territorial Army and took part in a training exercise over Zambia. During a skydive, his parachute failed to inflate.

    Thinking he had time to fix the problem before he hit the ground, he chose not to open the reserve chute and instead fell 16,000 ft and landed on his parachute pack. Although he narrowly avoided severing his spinal cord, he did break his back, which required him to go through 12 months of 10-hour-a-day physiotherapy.

  • The World War II Gunner Who Jumped From A Burning Plane Lived on Random People Who Fell from Ridiculously High Heights, But Managed To Survive

    (#11) The World War II Gunner Who Jumped From A Burning Plane Lived

    The year of 1944 was a torrid time for anyone living in Europe, but members of the Royal Air Force faced even more danger as it was the height of the Battle of Britain. In March of that year, rear gunner Sgt Nicholas Alkemade was in a Lancaster bomber that was hit by enemy fire. With his parachute destroyed by the resulting fire, the airman had only one choice – to jump from the plane before it crashed.

    Falling from at least 18,000 ft, his landing was softened by trees and deep snow in Berlin, meaning he only broke a wrist and his leg.
