Frane Selak is called the world’s luckiest man. The Croatian music teacher has cheated death seven times. He’s been in a train wreck, an airplane crash, a bus crash, his car blew up a few times, he was hit by a city bus, and his car was forced off a cliff by a truck. In 2003, Frane won $1,000,000 dollars in the Croatian lottery!
After awhile, Frane decided that money cannot buy happiness and he wanted to live a frugal life. He sold his luxury home on the private island, and gave away his fortune to family and friends, and moved back to his modest home in Petrinja. He kept some money to pay for his hip replacement operation and to enjoy his life with his wife. Frane says he’s happier than he’s ever been in his life and he hasn’t had anymore incidents. Knock on wood.
