1 of 4 survivors standing by wreckageThis passenger was in this aircraft when it hit a wind shear on final approach. As it started to gyrate, he went into the bracing position holding it as they hit and bounced.

He ran forward got a breath of the phosgene gas from the burning materials. As an Olympic diving coach he could hold his breath interminably and was the only passenger without toxic deposits in his lungs.

He opened the emergency exit, jumped off the wing and out of 101 passengers was one of the four survivors, two of which, sitting beside him had also read the instructions and planned their egress.
