CAN YOU CHEAT DEATH? "THE INDESTRUCTIBLES" INVESTIGATES THE SCIENCE BEHIND MIRACULOUS SURVIVAL STORIES CAPTURED ON TAPE SATURDAY, JULY 16, ON FOX

National Geographic's THE INDESTRUCTIBLES investigates real-life disastrous incidents to explain how someone could survive the seemingly unsurvivable. First, a normal morning on an Ohio highway turns disastrous when Brennan Eden's car goes airborne. The car barrels down the grassy median and collides with the guardrail. It slams into the center post of the overpass and then explodes into thousands of small pieces. A nearby witness finds Brennan's bloodied and mangled body. Miraculously, he recovers, but he has no memory of the accident and no idea of how he survived. But he is on a journey to find out how with the help of a stunt team and a crash investigator. Through a series of experiments that reenact the crash, we'll uncover what caused the car to go airborne. Experts reveal how Brennan survived the accident, which would have killed most drivers.

Then, see what happens when lions go on attack during feeding time. Robert Bennett, who usually tends to the camels and giraffes, decides to help out with the lions because of a staff shortage that day. He enters the cage and places the meat at the lions' feeding spot. But in a split second, this routine feeding ritual goes horribly wrong. Two young male lions appear right behind him and leap onto him, dragging Robert down with their paws and hooking their teeth into his neck. Despite bloody injuries, he survives with no major damage. An experienced trainer re-enacts the scenario using dummies to better understand what actually triggered the attack. The "Flying Car Crash / Mauled By Lions Special Edition" episode of THE INDESTRUCTIBLES airs Saturday, July 16 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (SP-1202) (TV-14 L, V)

[EDITOR'S NOTE: "The Indestructibles" premieres Sunday, July 10 at 10:00/9:00c on National Geographic Channel with back-to-back episodes.
