8 Amazing Stories of Sole Survivors of Plane Crashes
1. Francesca Lewis: The 12-year-old girl who was the sole survivor of a plane crash in Panama.
In 2007, plane crash survivor Francesca Lewis cheated death in the Panamanian mountains because luggage fell onto her, protecting her from the freezing conditions outside. The 12-year-old escaped with her life after the single-engined Cessna craft she was in crashed into a volcano, killing three. She miraculously survived not only the impact but also two-and-a-half days without food or water, pinned upside-down in her seat and dressed only in shorts and a T-shirt. The three others aboard the plane, Francesca's best friend, Talia Klein, 13, Talia's millionaire father, Michael Klein, 37, and pilot Edwin Lasso, 23 - died instantly. The girls, who went to school together in Santa Barbara, California, were on holiday in Panama.
2. Bahia Bakari: The 14-year-old sole survivor of a Yemenia Airways crash.
Bahia Bakari is a French schoolgirl who became famous as the sole survivor of Yemenia Flight 626, which crashed into the Indian Ocean near the north coast of Grande Comore, Comoros on June 30, 2009, killing all other 152 people on board. Bakari, who could barely swim and had no life vest, clung to aircraft wreckage in heavy seas for more than 13 hours, much of it in darkness, before being rescued by the Sima Com 2, a privately owned ship. As soon as Bakari was sighted, a member of the rescue team threw her a life preserver, but the waters were too rough, and she was too exhausted to grab it. One of the sailors, Maturaffi Sélémane Libounah, jumped into the water and handed her the flotation device, after which they were both pulled safely aboard the Sima Com 2. Her mother, who had been traveling with her from Paris, for a summer vacation in Comoros, died in the crash.
