If you think you’re having a great day when you find a car park without having to drive around the block, continue reading to discover 3 shocking tales of the 3 luckiest people to walk the Earth.
Three of the luckiest people to walk the Earth:
1. Joan Ginther – the winner of four lottery jackpots

Whilst you’d have to be pretty lucky to win over a million dollars on a lottery scratch card, it’s almost impossible to match Ginther’s lucky streak. Ginther won over 3.3 million pounds in 1993. Just 10 years later Ginther won 1.4 million pounds on a second scratch card. However, Ginther’s lucky streak hadn’t run out and Ginther then went on to win two more multi million dollar jackpots. One was worth 2 million pounds and the latter 7 million pounds.
The statistical odds of winning four lottery jackpots has been calculated as one chance in eighteen septillion!
2. Harrison Ford – The carpenter who rose to stardom
Did you know that Harrison Ford originally worked for Colombia and Universal Studios as a Carpenter, not an actor? Ford then was asked George Lucas to help audition actors for the part of Han Solo. However, Lucas was so impressed by Harrison’s portrayal of Han Solo that he ended up offering him the part of a lifetime.
3. Violet Jessop – The ordinary woman who survived not one but three epic disasters

Whilst you would’ve had to have lady luck on your side in order to survive the sinking of the Titanic, you would’ve had to be extremely lucky to survive three nautical disasters. Violet Jessop not only survived the sinking of the Titanic but she also survived the sinking of the Titanic’s sister ship the Britannic and the sinking of a third ship, the Olympic. Whilst it may be true that cats have nine lives, you could also argue that Violet Jessop had nine lives.
