Denise McLain was a Dollar Store manager in Jacksonville who fought for her life with two knife-wielding robbers in a store hold-up. Stabbed dozens of times, wrist slashed, throat cut, only the thought of her father at her funeral gave her the strength to outwit her assailants.
A former Marine turned executive, Nick Williams got caught in an unexpected blizzard while skiing on an unfamiliar mountain. With little more than training and personal resolve, Nick faced days of subfreezing temperatures and whiteout conditions. Would rescue ever arrive?
And Leonilda was a single mother charmed by Luis, a jealous powder-keg of a boyfriend. During a drug-fuelled binge of rage and paranoia, Luis abducted her and, to keep her from escaping, shot her five times, once in the head. Through it all Leonilda was sure Luis was going to kill her, but she knew she had to live to protect her son.
Hear from Denise, Nick and Leonilda as they recount their incredible stories of adversity and survival in this latest gut-churning episode of I SURVIVED....
