Abba - Agnetha Faltskog Feels Lucky To Be Alive

Former Abba star Agnetha Faltskog is convinced a guardian angel is watching over her after cheating death twice.

The Dancing Queen hitmaker famously quit travelling by plane in 1979 after a terrifying journey over the U.S. in which the band's aircraft ran low on fuel and the pilot had to attempt two emergency landings.

The shaken star escaped unscathed and swore off air travel - but she was left wondering about her good fortune four years later in 1983 when her private coach overturned on a road in Sweden and Faltskog was thrown from the vehicle.

She tells British newspaper The Sun, "I must have a guardian angel looking after me as I've had such bad luck but survived. But it's good to face your fears."
