Can you imagine the horror of enduring a plane crash? Unlike most automobile accidents, plane crashes generally come with advanced warning. There are individuals who have survived the initial force of a plane crashes, yet due to the shock and stress put on their bodies from fear and anticipation, they weren’t able to survive. Statistically speaking, being involved in a plane crash is not something that many people will endure, but for those who do, hopefully they can take a page from the following celebrity survivors, and live to tell about it.
8. Ed Robertson
Ed Robertson is one of the two lead vocalists for the greatest Canadian band in the history of all its exports: Barenaked Ladies. Ed Robertson is also a pilot, and in 2008, he embarked on a little journey with his wife and a couple friends in his amphibious Cessna 206. Shortly after takeoff, the aircraft experienced a problem, and began to lose altitude. Being an experienced pilot, Robertson was able to guide the craft back to solid ground, and set it down in a wooded area some 300 meters from the shoreline. The crash was unexplained by Robertson, and the investigation that followed also led to inconclusive results. Ultimately, the investigator concluded that “undetected air currents” might have been to blame for the crash, but would have no way of proving or disproving such a theory. All four passengers walked away without serious injury.Veda Jo Jenkins/REX
