What it's like surviving a plane crash
The odds that you’ll be in an airplane crash are about 1 in 1.2 million. The odds you’ll die that way? 1 in 11 million. So what’s it like being someone who made it through something like that?
On today’s show, hear stories from two people who did, including a pilot, and a woman who was one of only two survivors of a crash that claimed 107 lives.
- Kechi Okwuchi: author of More Than My Scars, a memoir about being one of the two survivors in a 2005 plane crash that claimed 107 lives. Her debut album is called Kechi.
- Jamie Hull: author of Life On A Thread, a memoir about surviving after a plane crash in 2007
