While Nicholas Alkemade’s survival was remarkable, meet Vesna Vulovic, who holds the Guinness record for surviving a 10,160-meter free fall in 1972:

She miraculously survived this enormous fall from a DC-9 explosion, cushioned by a catering trolley and tail section.

And her first request after waking up from her coma? A cigarette! Talk about a high-altitude power move!
