Plane Crash Survivor John Diaz
In 2007, music producer John Diaz told Oprah a story that she would never forget. A few years earlier, John was on a flight taking off from Taiwan when things went horribly wrong. Before his flight even left the runway, it was hit with two serious collisions—including one that ripped a hole in the plane, causing the cabin to fill with fiery jet fuel. John watched the people around him ignite in flames. Miraculously, he found a way to survive. Thanks to his quick thinking and his seat in the front row, John was able to shield himself with a leather carry-on bag and escape through an exit door.
