A trip to her lakeside cottage became a trip to hell for Linda when four strangers on drugs drove her off the road. In the ensuing nightmare they demanded money, stabbed her repeatedly, cut her throat, bludgeoned her with a bat, and burned her in her car. Ironically, and thankfully, the blaze caught the attention of two teens driving by, who dragged Linda to safety in the nick of time.
And Wayne and Mary awoke in their home to another sort of nightmare. A chlorine gas leak from a nearby train derailment had them struggling to breathe and watching in stupefied horror as their metal appliances literally melted before their eyes. Will rescue arrive before the gas finally overcomes them? The answer doesn?t come for six agonizing hours!

Neither Chris, nor any of the Rail Road Killer's other victims, were so lucky.
These sobering tales make up this newest riveting episode of I SURVIVED...
