What Happens If You Fall out of an Airplane at 30,000 Feet? 5
30,000 feet, 9,144 meters, 9 kilometers or 5.7 miles — so far, only one person has ever survived a free fall from that height. Would you be as lucky? On January 26, 1972, an explosion aboard JAT Airlines Flight 367 resulted in the impossible. 22-year-old flight attendant Vesna Vulovic fell from 10,000 meters (33,000 feet) in the air, setting a world record for surviving the highest fall without a parachute. How did she survive?

Produced by Underknown in Toronto, What If is a mini-documentary web series that takes you on an epic journey through hypothetical worlds and possibilities. Join us on an imaginary adventure — grounded in scientific theory — through time, space and chance, as we ask what if some of the most fundamental aspects of our existence were different.

The best way to survive is to stand on a broken piece of the plane as its falling then just as its about to hit the ground you simply just step off it quick 😉

4:35 "The heavier you are, the faster you'd fall"
No sir, free fall is irrespective of mass according to Newton's law. However your statement is valid to an extent, if we include the premise of buoyant force.
