1. Bill Morgan – He came back from the dead.
Australian Bill Morgan came back from the dead and won a car and a big amount of cash.
Bill Morgan had an accident where he was crushed when his car collided with a truck in an accident. He was dead for more than 14 minutes but somehow survived and also came away from 12 days of coma, even after his family removed him from the life support.
Not only that. To celebrate the new life, he bought a ‘Scratch It’ card and won a $27,000 car! And to document his incredible story, a local news channel asked him to re-enact the winning moment by scratching another card, only for him to win $250,000 again during the live reenactment!
2. Frane Selak – Was lucky 7 times, and then again.
Frane Selak is known as the luckiest man to ever live as he cheated death 7 TIMES!
A year later, during his first and only plane ride, he was blown out of a malfunctioning plane door, and landed on a haystack. The plane crashed, killing 19 people.
In 1966, a bus he was travelling in skid off the road, into a river, drowning four passengers. However, swam safely to the shore.
Two years after, when trying to teach his youngest son how to hold a gun. Selak hadn’t realized that the safety trigger was accidentally off and somehow shot himself in the testicles and his testicles had to be removed, but he luckily survived, again.In 1970, and 1973 he got into accidents where his car caught fire but again managed to get out of the situation absolutely unharmed.
In 1995, Selak was hit by a bus in Zagreb, but only suffered minor injuries.
A year later, he eluded a collision with a United Nations truck on a blind mountain curve by swerving into a guardrail, which couldn’t hold on its own and gave way under the impact force of the car. He was not wearing a seat-belt at this point of time, and was ejected from the car when the door flew open. Selak saw his death along with the car plummet down about 300 ft into a gorge.
And again in 2003, two days after his 73rd birthday, Frane Selak won a staggering $1.1 million in the Croatian National Lottery!
3. Joan R. Ginther – Four times a Charm.

Joan R. Ginther won a lottery not once, but 4 times!
She first won a $5.4 million then $2 million more 10 years later.
And again 2 years later she won $3 million, and once more $10 million in 2008!
