I was looking at a dictionary for different senses of 'fortunate'. I found two examples and I don't get the difference between the two. Please help me.
- They were fortunate enough to escape injury when their car crashed.
Does this mean they escaped injury because they are were fortunate or does it mean they were fortunate because they had escaped injury?
- They were fortunate to escape injury when their car crashed.
Also, what's the difference between #1 and #2?
