found this online-

Based on the U.S. history of previous market crashes, investors who are currently entirely in stocks could lose as much as 80% of their savings if the 1929 or 2001 crashes repeat. If we have a repeat of the 2008 crash, the loss would be ďonlyĒ 56%.
They would of had to panic and sell their MF. Whether was that the bank told them to do that or not I donít see how else they went from a lot to nothing. If they stayed in the market it likely would have rebounded and then some. Or am I missing something? Either way thatís an unfortunate outcome.
