Luck favors the bold… Well, sometimes it does.
Sometimes you can just be struck with luck suddenly, it’s like being struck by lightning!
Of course, not everyone shares the same experiences of luck.
For some people, it could be winning the jackpot, and for others, it could be not dropping your phone straight into a sewer grid.
I was very lucky when I met Walt! The day I met him was the day I found $5 on the ground! How lucky was I?
As I said, luck can differ for different people!
Take a look at how 24 people found themselves in a very lucky position!
1. Without A Scratch
Ben Carpenter ended up extremely fortunate after he involuntarily was involved with a police case!
Carpenter’s electric wheelchair became lodged in the grille of a semi-trailer when the truck bumped into the side of it.
He was completely strapped into the wheelchair, and he ended up being pushed down a highway for several kilometers at about 80 km/h!
Luckily for Carpenter, a pair of police officers happened to witness the whole event and got the truck to pull over.
The wheelchair was severely damaged, but Ben made it out of the incident without a scratch! Lucky Ben!
2. Another Win
Australian truck driver Bill Morgan had a string of good luck that can only be described as incredible.
Morgan suffered sadly a heart attack after an accident. He was clinically dead for more than 14 minutes, but after 12 days in a coma, Morgan miraculously awoke unscathed and unharmed.
He later ended up winning a car from a scratch ticket. When a local news station interviewed Morgan about his string of good luck, they had him re-enact his scratching of the ticket on camera where he ended up winning once again, this time a jackpot worth $170,000!
3. Wedding Ring
Lena Påhlsson lost her wedding ring back in 1995 after placing it on the counter.
She was heartbroken as the ring had been specially designed for her. She kept her eyes peeled for it for years before giving up.
But 16 years later, Lena was gardening when she pulled out a carrot that had grown through the ring and the ring came up with the vegetable!
4. Long Lost Family
Steve Flaig, is a delivery truck driver for Lowe’s, and he had been searching for his birth mother for years after discovering that she left the adoption records open.
After spending years looking for her, Flaig found out that he’d been spelling her last name wrong.
After entering the right name, he discovered that his birth mother was working at the same Lowe’s as a cashier!
5. Three Days
Harrison Odjegba Okene was incredibly lucky when he survived for three days in a tugboat that had sunk to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Okene was the only one of the 12 team members to survive, and it was all thanks to an air pocket that had formed in the engine room.
Rescuers thankfully were able to find him before the supply of oxygen completely diminished!
Talk about good luck!
6. Plane Crash
Juliane Koepcke was the sole survivor of the LANSA Flight 508 plane crash in 1971. She was just a teenager at the time.

7. Dog Walking
A California couple was out walking their dog when they ended up stumbling upon a treasure trove of rare gold coins.

8. Lucky Three
