Fright How To Survive A 10,000-Foot Fall

Alan Magee survived a 20,000-foot fall from his plane during World War II and survived by landing on the glass roof of a French railroad station. And Serbian flight attendant Vesna Vulović holds the Guinness world record for the longest survived fall over 30,000 feet after her plane blew up in the 1970s, though some cynics think the real height of Vulović's fall was a mere 2,600 feet.

But how exactly do you survive such an extraordinary event?
