Horseshoes up his butt
Frane Selak, an elderly Croatian music teacher, has survived many plane, train, car and bus crashes according to this story. Amongst his many escapes, he says that he survived when a plane crashed in 1963, killing 17, because he had been sucked out the rear doors of the plane and, landed, unconscious, in a haystack. Another time, he survived when a train he was on plunged off into a river.
This is a wire service story, so I hope that the original source has official reports, etc., to back this up. Sorry, I don't read Croatian and thus can't confirm this for you.
