Adam Michael Goldstein, aka DJ AM, survived a plane crash, but being seriously injured. The same plane crash killed four others. It was on September 19, 2008.


However, almost a year later, on August 28, 2009, he was found dead at his NY apartment. "[...] As Rolling Stones reported, Goldstein had eight OxyContin pills in his system and one in his mouth when he was found face down on his bed, and police believe that crack might also have played a role in the celebrity DJ’s death."

Is this a case of bad luck or second chance wasted? Or, in one case he could escape death, but on the second one, no. Isn't it weird? To survive a plane crash, to die later at home, apparently by his own hand?

It happened to another person this year, it seems death goes out of its way to end some people.

"An Italian couple missed their flight Air France 447 on 31 May heading from Rio de Janeiro to Paris. We thought to ourselves: these people are really lucky.
Some days later the German-Italian couple Johanna and Kurt Ganthaler arrived back in Europe safely. From Munich they decided to drive home – Merano, Italy – by a rental car.
On the way around Kufstein their car changed lanes for some reason and they ended up in the opposite direction, where they had a head-on collision with a truck.
The woman died in the hospital where she was taken after the accident. Her husband was also injured and he is still in hospital."
