Each episode recounts riveting individual stories of determination, triumph and sheer luck. Hear real stories told by real people who can?t believe they're alive to say "I SURVIVED..."
This episode of I SURVIVED serves as a cautionary tale to anyone who's considered offering a stranger a ride. In two instances profiled here, this friendly gesture turns horribly wrong and victims barely survive to tell their stories. In one case, Brandi and her friend Liz offer a ride to man who turns on them, stabbing Liz repeatedly and beating Brandi before then throwing her into a river. And Sam and Suzanne are kidnapped by a hitchhiker who forces them to drive several hundred miles at gunpoint.
Equally gripping is Joseph's amazing story. With two other men, Joseph found himself stranded in a rocky, barren island. Unable to communicate, exposed to the elements and preparing themselves for the worst, the trio last 13 days. Find out what happens with the DVD of this riveting episode of I SURVIVED...!
