Born in Croatia in 1929 … Frane Selak has been labeled “the world’s luckiest, unluckiest man”.
We think the term “lucky” boils down to one’s perspective!
1962: A train Frane was riding in went off the tracks, crashing into a river. 17 people died – Frane broke his arm.
1963: Shortly before landing (on a flight from Zagreb to Rijeka), Frane and a flight attendant were sucked out of a malfunctioning plane door. 19 people died – Frane landed on a haystack!
1966: A bus Frane was riding in crashed into an icy river. 4 passengers died. – Frane managed to swim to shore.
1970: While driving his car … it caught fire. Frane escaped before the fuel tank blew up.
1973: A faulty fuel pump caused flames to shoot through the vents of his car – Frane’s hair got a little burnt.
1995: During a leisurely stroll in Zagreb, Frane was hit by a bus. He suffered minor injuries.
1996: To dodge a head-on collision, Frane swerved into a guardrail. The impact ejected Frane from the moving vehicle … but he managed to grab hold of a tree branch … while his car fell 300 feet into the gorge below!
In 2003, at the age of 73 … Mr. Selak won €800,000 in the lottery!
What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Not much, really.
That said … if you’ve had some bad luck working for some lousy companies … just like Frane Selak, your luck may just have turned!
