(TODAY.COM) Twenty-five years ago this week, Cecelia Cichan was the only survivor in a plane crash in Michigan that killed the other 154 people on board.
Only 4 years old when Northwest Airlines Flight 255 exploded in a ball of fire in 1987, Cichan said in her first interview since the horrific ordeal that she still thinks about it every day. Now 29 and married, Cichan tells her story in the yet-to-be-released documentary “Sole Survivor,’’ excerpts of which aired on TODAY Tuesday. The documentary also features other people who survived commercial plane crashes despite long odds.
In the film, Cichan displays a tattoo of a commercial jet on the underside of her left wrist.
