Meet Christina Kurylo, she is the woman who was hit by a propeller and lived to tell her story! Have you ever heard when people say, “it wasn’t his/her time?” Well it clearly wasn’t Christina’s time! She was in the wrong seat at the wrong time but still she made it through.

Kurylo was a passenger on board an Air Canada flight that was forced back on ground after a tire burst during take-off on Thursday night. As the craft crash-landed, the landing gear collapsed on the right side, sending one of five propellers through the wall of the plane! The Daily Mail reports.

Out of nowhere, Christina was hit in her head by a propeller, that could have instantly sliced her open and killed her. She told Global News:

‘I’m really lucky. It could have been a million times worse,’ ‘I could have died, you know, you never know what could have happened.

‘All of a sudden I got hit in the head,’ ‘It was pretty confusing for me. It’s bits and pieces for me after that.’

Another three passengers aboard the 75-person flight have also been treated for injuries following what could have been a major tragedy. Kurylo –who is in the Public Relations and Communications industry –was headed from Calgary to Grande Prairie.
