Michelle, a successful bank executive, never wanted to bring her work home with her, but that was taken out of her hands one terrible day. Three masked gunmen burst into her home, then taped dynamite to her and her 7-year-old daughter. They ordered Michelle to rob the bank vault where she worked or they would blow up her little girl! Michelle had to think fast to keep her assailants calm and her child safe.
And for teenagers Troy and Josh, a nice day out fishing unexpectedly turned into a desperate fight for survival. The boys took a small sailboat out to a favorite spot in an inlet but were caught by a dangerous current and swept out to sea for six days. With limited resources they faced heavy seas, freezing nights, burning days, and persistent sharks that surrounded their tiny boat!
Hear these incredible stories from the brave and fortunate people who survived them!
