In 1971, 17 year old Juliane Koepcke took a short flight from Lima, Peru to Pucallpa to reunite with her family for Christmas. On the way, her plane, LANSA flight 508, was struck by lightning and Juliane found herself falling 10,000 feet from the sky, miraculously surviving the fall with relatively minor injuries. But her incredible tale of survival had just begun, because as she got her bearings, she realized that the plane had crashed right in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest, a vast and unforgiving jungle with untold danger, and very little chance of rescue. Juliane had survived a plane crash, but now, she would have to survive the Amazon alone.
